9th Annual National Ride to Work Day

June 20, 2011 in the United States


Ride to Work, Work to Ride

Every year more and more riders are finding cycles and scooters to be an economical, efficient and fun way to commute. Because of this, the 20th annual worldwide Ride To Work Day, scheduled for June 20, 2011 is expected to be one of the largest ever.
 
On Ride to Work Day, the practical side of riding becomes more visible as a large number of America's 8,000,000 cycles and scooters are ridden to work, which helps to demonstrate how these vehicles make parking easier and help traffic flow better. Studies have shown that across equal distances, commuting motorcyclists reach their destinations in less time than those using automobiles, and that motorcycles and scooters consume less resources per mile, and that they take up less space on roads.


Ride your motorcycle or scooter on this day to demonstrate:

    The number of motorcyclists to the general public and to politicians.
    That motorcyclists are from all occupations and all walks of life.
    That motorcyclists can reduce traffic and parking congestion in large cities.
    That motorcycles are for transportation as well as recreation.
    That motorcycling is a social good.
