Imagine if you can, being an air traffic controller landing planes in a busy airport. Imagine now that the airport director decides that hang gliders are now going to be landing in the same airport. Why hang gliders? Because they are non-polluting, good exercise, relatively low cost, super fun and take up less space. Air traffic controllers are now in charge of landing these new intruders onto the runway and trying to come up with new designs of landing strips to accommodate the hang gliders. Substitute city streets for the airport runways and bikes for the hang gliders and you have the basis of what Joyride is all about.
