AMA Supports National Ride To Work Day2014 Ride to Work Day

The American Motorcyclist Association is encouraging all motorcyclists to participate in the 23rd Annual International Motorcycle and Scooter Ride to Work Day on June 16 to demonstrate that motorcycles are fun and affordable, easy to maneuver in traffic and park, fuel efficient and better for the environment than cars and trucks.

“Motorcyclists understand the practical benefits of riding, in addition to the sheer joy of it,” said Rob Dingman, AMA president and CEO. “Ride To Work Day provides motorcycle enthusiasts an opportunity to share their love of riding with co-workers and others they meet during the course of the day. And of course, riding a motorcycle is a socially conscious activity.”

With an estimated participation of more than 1 million riders in 2013, the event draws the attention of government officials, employers, media outlets and other daily commuters.

Motorcyclists can also use the opportunity to highlight important issues, such as distracted drivers, motorcycle-only checkpoints, health-insurance discrimination, parking restrictions and the benefits of legal lane splitting.

Ride To Work Day, always the third Monday in June, is an effort by organizer Andy Goldfine to draw attention to this beneficial form of transportation and educate the general population about the positive impact of motorcycling.

Goldfine has often emphasized that motorcycles and scooters consume fewer resources per mile than automobiles and take up less space in parking areas and on roads.

Ride to Work Day is a nonprofit organization. More information is available at www.ridetowork.org.
