*Raidō “ride, journey” is the reconstructed Proto-Germanic name of the r– rune of the Elder Futharkᚱ. The name is attested for the same rune in all three rune poems, Old Norwegian Ræið Icelandic Reið, Anglo-Saxon Rad, as well as for the corresponding letter of the Gothic alphabet 𐍂 r, called raida. The shape of the rune may be directly derived from Latin R.

Raido Rune Meaning according to Ralph Blum – “Communication – Union, Reunion”
Ralph Blum believed this Rune is concerned with communication. “With the attunement of something that has two sides, two elements, and with the ultimate reunion that comes at the end of the journey, when what is above and what is below are united and of one mind. Raido represents the soul’s journey and has within it the element of joy, for the end is in sight. No longer burdened by what you’ve left behind, Heaven and Earth unite within you to support you on your way. A simple prayer for the soul’s journey is: I will to will Thy will.” – Ralph Blum “The New Book of Runes”
Raido according to Rune Secrets – “Ride-ho” – Literally: “Ride” or “Wagon” – Esoteric: Journey
“Raidho is the rune of ordered movement of energies in time and space as it pertains to human awareness. It is the rune of leading by example and of actions that speak louder than words. Though ANSUZ may tell the stories, Raidho lives the stories. It represents our deepest personal life journey and the ultimate failures of language to communicate our experience to others. Something to notice about Raidho is the habitual way in which our minds concoct story and identity”.- From the Rune Secrets
Elder Futhark Raido Rune Meaning – “Journey, travel, a wagon, a cartwheel, the Cosmic Chariot, the Wheel of Stars, transportation, a path or road”.
Futhark believed Raido rune is the fifth rune of the first aett. “This rune represents the path of a person’s life and how it interacts and intersects with other people’s lifepaths. This rune also shows us the properties of movement and cause and effect – for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” – From The Elder Futhhark Runes
