Within this game mode, there are two options: Small City and Town.
- Small City mode - You can play this mode after you finish the first story chapter. In it you only have available a part of the city.
- Town mode - This mode is achieved as you progress through the story mode, and lets you play throughout the city and the countryside. You can also choose between day and night.
The missions in Free Ride are not story related but as you progress through the game more options are unlocked.
