The recent 2019 Ride To Work Day was one of the most successful ever, with more than triple the number of motorcycles and scooters out on the roadways in support of the benefits of everyday riding. Building on that success and excitement, we are pleased to announce that the 29th annual Ride To Work Day will take place on Monday, June 15th, 2019.
With your help and support, Ride To Work Day 2020 will further elevate the awareness about riding a motorcycle or scooter for everyday travel and transportation as a social good, making the world a better place! The Ride To Work website has been updated with new artwork, ads, and posters that can be downloaded, shared, forwarded, and printed to raise even more awareness and encourage even more riders to commute by scooter or cycle on this day. In addition to grass roots efforts to educate others about the benefits of riding, motorcyclists may also seek employer recognition and support for this form of transportation, and increased public and government awareness of the societally positive benefits of utility riding.
Adding motorcycles and scooters helps traffic flow better, according to Ride To Work, a non-profit advocacy organization. Studies have also shown that across the same distances, riders reach their destinations up to 20% faster than those using automobiles. Most motorcycles and scooters also consume less resources per mile than automobiles. “Riding to work on this day is fun and highlights the value of motorcycling. Riding is a form of personal mobility that saves energy, helps the environment, and provides a broad range of personal and public benefits,” stated Andy Goldfine, this year’s event organizer.
