This year’s annual Motorcycle and Scooter Ride to Work Day is Monday, June 19th.
The 26th annual Ride To Work demonstration can more than triple the number of riders on some roads. Most motorcycle and scooter clubs and organizations encourage riders to commute by scooter or cycle on this day. Riders 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 value of motorcycling. Riding is a form of personal mobility that saves energy, helps the environment and provides a broad range of public benefits,” stated Andy Goldfine, this year’s event organizer.

The Ride to Work website includes:

Useful tools and in-depth information about issues and programs.
An interactive forum to discuss Riding to Work.
An assortment of Ride to Work supporting merchandise.
A wholesale program available to dealers and retailers.
A photo gallery to show your Every Day Ride on the website.
