The worldwide “Ride To Work Day” is coming. Get ready to ride your 2 wheeler to work on Monday, June 17th. This is an important event to reinforce the importance of motorcycles. The Ride to Work organization is a 501(c) 4 non-profit organization advocating and supporting the use of motorcycles and scooters for transportation, as well as providing information about the everyday utility of motorcycle riding to the public. To celebrate Ride To Work Day we and Muc-Off are giving away motorcycle cleaning kits (see bottom of this post).
By riding to work on “Ride To Work Day” you do several things to promote motorcycling in your community.
Riding your motorcycle or scooter to work on this day demonstrates:
- The number of motorcyclists to the general public and to politicians.
- That motorcyclists are from all occupations and all walks of life.
- That motorcyclists can reduce traffic and parking congestion in large cities.
- That motorcycles are for transportation as well as recreation.
- That motorcycling is a social good.
The “Ride to Work” Day was inspired by motorcycle rider clothing manufacturer Aerostich’s marketing materials and it’s tagline “Work to Ride – Ride to Work”. Then, in May 1992, motorcycle magazine editor Fred Rau wrote an editorial in Road Rider magazine calling for a national “Ride To Work” day.
The first “Ride To Work Day” was held on July 22, 1992, on the third Wednesday in July. It was an informal event and informally promoted by several companies. By 2000, the event had grown very substantially. So that year a non-profit organization was formed to help organize subsequent “Ride To Work” days. In 2008, the “Ride To Work Day” date was changed to the third Monday in June to better accommodate riders worldwide.
Ride to Work is an all-volunteer effort and if you’d like to contribute to the day or organize an event, contact:
