April: ‘AMA Get Out and Ride’ Month

AMA News

It’s official: The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is celebrating April as "AMA Get Out and Ride! Month." While some motorcyclists live where just about every day is a day in the saddle, many riders are stuck in a deep freeze all winter. There’s no better way to rekindle America’s ongoing love affair with two (or three)-wheeled wonders than a month-long ridefest.

Rob Dingman (AMA President & CEO) says: "April is the perfect month to kickoff a celebration of the motorcycling lifestyle. It’s been a long, cold winter, and motorcyclists across the country are enjoying these first warm days of spring. We invite motorcyclists everywhere to join us as we usher in another great season of on- and off-road riding."

AMA Get Out and Ride! Month kicks into gear on April 1. Throughout the month, the AMA will shine a spotlight on cool places to ride and showcase the riding activities of its members and motorcyclists across the country.

A special web page on AmericanMotorcyclist.com, plus a Facebook page and Twitter feed, will provide daily details about the springtime campaign, including themes for each week:

  • April 4-10: AMA Get Out and Ride Your Way! Week highlights everything from AMA Grand Tours to solo riding on favorite trails and twisties.
  • April 11-17: AMA Get Out and Ride Together! Week features large iconic rallies and smaller local events, from dual-sport rides to AMA National Conventions to Gypsy Tours.
  • April 18-24: AMA Get Out and Ride for a Cause! Week showcases events and activities where motorcyclists use their love of riding to help others less fortunate, as well as advocate for the motorcycling lifestyle.
  • April 25-30: AMA Get Out and Ride Smart! Week focuses on rider training and awareness skills needed to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience on every ride.

Motorcyclists are invited to share their experiences with stories, photos and videos. Weekly winners will be selected for the best submission, and the motorcyclist with the coolest tale will be featured in an upcoming issue of American Motorcyclist magazine and on AmericanMotorcyclist.com.

Rob Dingman says: "Millions of us spend the winter months imagining all the terrific riding we want to do, and April is the month when we get out there and begin living out those dreams. AMA Get Out and Ride! Month is a great way to share our adventures with tens of thousands of newfound riding friends across the country."
