Along the same lines as Take Your Kid to Work Day, the 19th annual Ride to Work Day is Monday, June 21. Participation in the yearly demonstration is estimated to triple the number of riders on the road, according to the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA).
On Ride to Work Day, motorcycle and scooter commuters seek improved employer recognition and support for this form of transportation and increased public and government awareness of the positive value of riding.
Adding more commuting motorcycles and scooters makes urban parking easier and traffic flow better, according to Ride to Work, a non-profit advocacy organization.
“Riding to work on this day is fun and highlights the positive value of motorcycling,” Andy Goldfine, this year’s event organizer, stated in a press release. “For many people, riding is a socially responsible form of mobility that saves energy, helps the environment and provides a broad range of other public benefits.”
