According to the United States Census Bureau and the Department of Transportation, more than 80 million cars and light trucks are used for daily commuting on American roads, and about 200,000 motorcycles and scooters are a regular part of this mix. On Ride To Work Day, the practical side of riding becomes more visible as a larger number of America’s motorcycles and scooters are ridden to work."With such a significant increase in riders on America’s roads during the busiest time of day — rush hour — the benefits are clear," said AMA Vice President of Government Relations Ed Moreland. "Ride to Work Day also demonstrates to non-riders that motorcycles and scooters are a socially responsible form of transportation that conserve energy, help the environment and, let’s face it, are just a cool way to get around. And for riders, Ride to Work Day is a great reminder that the journey is every bit as important as the destination."This year will be the 18th annual Ride to Work Day, which was started by Andy Goldfine, a member of the AMA Board of Directors and founder of the company Aerostich.
