Harley-Davidson Million Mile Monday Expanding to Two Days

The Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.), the official riding club of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company, is pleased to invite all Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders around the world to join its members in celebrating the freedom of the open road during the 2012 Harley-Davidson World Ride.

Launched in 2008, Million Mile Monday has been an annual event on the last Monday of June that brings thousands of Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders together in a collective effort to celebrate the motorcycle riding experience.

In 2011, riders collectively logged more that 4,000,000 miles. New for 2012, Million Mile Monday has been expanded into a two-day World Ride on Sunday June 24 and Monday June 25 to give more riders worldwide an opportunity to participate, and with the expansion to two days this year, the company hopes to raise the mileage total even higher.

Nigel Villiers (Harley-Davidson Director of H.O.G. and Customer Experience International) says: “H.O.G. is excited to welcome Harley riders around the world to take part in the first-ever Harley-Davidson World Ride.

“On these two days, riders of all nations will band together as one, dedicating ourselves to a shared love of riding motorcycles, and no one will ride alone.”

Whether it’s a ride across town or cross-country, or simply around the block to work, every mile or kilometer counts and can be recorded by logging into Harley-Davidson’s online mileage accumulator at h-d.com/worldride, where a rolling odometer will record the collective distance traveled by all participants in the World Ride. At the completion of the ride, a commemorative certificate of participation can be printed to display each rider’s mileage total for the day.
