Ride Your Motorcycle to Work Day 2014
Ride Your Motorcycle to Work Day 2014 is an international ride out that has the following aims to show:
1) the number of motorcyclists and scooters to the general public and to politicians;
2) that the motorcycle riders are from different spheres of life;
3) that riding a motorcycle can reduce traffic congestion;
4) that motorcycles can be used for transportation as well as recreation;
5) that riding a motorcycle is good.
The ride takes place every 3rd Monday in June, thus this year it will be held June 16, 2014.
Initially the Ride to Work Day was initiated in the May 1992 issue of Road Rider magazine which is now Motorcycle Consumer News. It was said there by Bob Carpenter how nice it would be if everyone once a year would use his bike by riding to work. Then Aerostich RiderWear promoted this idea by printing the words 'Work To Ride, Ride To Work' on their T-Shirts. Afterwards everyone thought a national 'Ride To Work' to be a nice idea.
Ride to Work is a nonprofit, all-volunteer effort. Organizers include Andy Goldfine, Lynn Wisneski and Christine Holt.
