2013 Ride to Work Day

The 22nd annual worldwide Ride to Work Day is expected to be one of the largest-ever, according to Ride to Work, the non-profit organization that coordinates this annual event.

In the United States, over eighty million cars and light trucks are used for daily commuting, and only about 200,000 motorcycles and scooters are a usually part of this mix.

On Ride to Work Day a much higher number of America’s 8,000,000 cycles and scooters are ridden to work. Some estimates put the numbers of added riders at over 1,000,000.

Studies have shown that across equal distances, commuting rider can reach their destinations more quickly – in up to 20% less time than those using automobiles – and that motorcycles and scooters consume less resources per person per mile, and that they take up less space on roads.

Motorcycle and scooter riders seek improved employer support for this form of transportation, and more public and government awareness about the societally-positive benefits of riding.

The Ride to Work website includes forum areas, merchandise, information, and free promotional support materials.
