As the third Monday in June, it’s international Ride To Work Day and we’re celebrating this global event that promotes motorcycling to the masses by championing commuters.

The Ride To Work campaign is run by the Federation of European Motorcyclists’ Associations (FEMA) in coordination with the Ride To Work non-profit in the USA and it has three great aims:

“Raising awareness. The event aims to raise awareness of motorcycling among the wider public and to promote the benefits of motorcycling to employers. At the same time, we aim to show the positive aspects of motorcycling in the media and encourage people to consider taking up biking as an alternative to driving.

“Get on your bike. We really want to see as many of Europe’s motorcycles on the roads as possible on Ride To Work Day, but we can only do it with your help! If you normally drive a car or van to work, or you usually only ride the bike on the weekends, here’s an opportunity for you to get out and enjoy riding your bike to work.

“Changing attitudes. The event aims to raise awareness of motorcycling among the wider public and employers. At the same time, we aim to show the positive aspects of motorcycling in the media and encourage people to consider taking up biking as an alternative to driving. By riding to work we demonstrate that life would be better if more people rode motorcycles and scooters every day.”

So, are you riding to work to celebrate the day or do you ride to work normally? Tell us your story and send us your pictures on our Facebook page!
