RIDE 5 Cheats and Tips


RIDE 5 Cheats and Tips


Practice makes perfect

You can read as many articles and watch as many guides as you like, but there’s no substitute for hard work on the track. As we mentioned before, if you’re new to RIDE 5, start on either Easy or Medium difficulty mode.

You’ll want to be racing against the AI, but you should practice on the track by yourself to start with. Once you master controlling your wheels by yourself, you should then introduce competitors to the mix, not before that though.

We recommend going over the main menu and heading into the “Race” sub-menu. From there, you can go to Time Trial. We usually pick a simple track like Monza or Brands Hatch and a low-powered bike.

Assist King

Depending on your racing game experience, you’ll start to get used to the bike and either turn down or remove assists one by one. You can change the difficulty settings by heading to “Riding Aids” before starting any race.

There are presets for these, but you can alter each one individually depending on what help you need to be competitive against the AI.

Speaking of the AI, what you set them to is up to you. Personally, we prefer to set these higher and have a bike that’s easier to ride, but it’s down to personal preference.

There are a lot of assists and settings here, so we’ll explain them here.


  • Auto-brakes: When enabled, this applies the brakes when required to get around corners. Meant only for beginners.
  • Joint brakes: When disabled, you’ll need to modulate the rear brake when braking. Should only be disabled for experienced riders.
  • Brake input modulation: Similar to ABS, disable this only if you’re an experienced rider.



  • Automatic steering: Similar to auto-brakes, this manually steers the bike when activated. Only meant for beginners.
  • Cornering input modulation: This helps to prevent steering the bike too much and unsettling the bike.


  • Transmission: Dictates whether the bike is automatically shifting gears or this is done manually.
  • Acceleration input modulation: Effectively traction control which helps prevent wheelspin when enabled.
  • Automatic throttle: Like auto brakes and steering, this applies the throttle correctly around the lap so you don’t have to. We’d only recommend this for newbies.


Other aids:

  • Ideal trajectory: This is the racing line and you can choose to have it around the entire lap or just in corners.
  • Off-track aid: If you run off the circuit, this will help prevent you falling off your bike.
  • Rewind: When used, this helps to erase mistakes by rewinding the race and restarting it from a point of your choosing.
  • Game speed reduction: If the action is a little too fast for you, you can lower the speed the game is played at.
