Ride to Work Day calls for participants
National Ride to Work Day (20 June) – an event designed to show how enjoyable the daily commute can be on a motorcycle – is calling for bikers and non-bikers to participate in the 2011 event.
The Ride to Work website says that life would be better if more people rode motorcycles and scooters every day, as this would result in saving time, less congestion, and reduced travel costs.
As well as getting more people to motorcycle, the event reminds all road users that they all share the road and that everyone should, therefore, look out for each other. The day will also highlight to policy makers that motorcyclists are a vital part of the transport mix.
The event is also aimed at non-riders who are interested in taking up motorcycling. Through the Ride to Work Day Facebook page, new riders can be put in touch with experienced riders, who will act as ‘riding buddies’ on the day of the event.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
