Ride To Work Day is an international campaign promoted in the UK by The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG). Advocating and supporting the use of motorcycles and scooters for transportation, we aim to provide information about the benefits of everyday utility riding to the public.
MAG promote the international campaign which originated in the US in 1992. Held annually on the third Monday in June, help us celebrate this year’s Ride To Work Day on 15th June 2020.
Motorcycles, as part of the transport mix, are a key contributor to a sustainable future of travel. They also provide social, economic and environmental benefits in a world currently dominated by the car.
Large numbers of motorcyclists use their bikes predominantly for leisure then choose the car to commute. Leave your car in the garage or on the drive during the week, as well as the weekend, and contribute to reduced congestion for all road users. As a result you will reduce emissions and improve air quality in towns and cities. In addition, improved mental well being for work forces and massive economic savings for the country are achievable. Not only that, as a rider you will have much more fun!
If you are one of those riders that commute by car, consider riding to work. Don’t ride? Why not give it a go? You may be surprised by how much time and money you save. If you still want to stay in your car, please remember to look out for and give space to those that are riding.
Riders can help spread the word by using our resources to communicate the key messages on social media and work place noticeboards.
We will be posting articles in our blog to explain the benefits of riding. Remember these gains for the individuals riding are matched by those still using their cars.
