Subject: Motorcycle and Scooter Ride To Work Day

Largest Annual Motorcycle and Scooter Ride To Work Day Expected on Monday, June 20th, 2011

This year more riders are finding cycles and scooters to be an economical, efficient and fun way to commute. Because of this, the 20th annual worldwide Ride to Work Day is expected to be one of the largest-ever, according to Ride to Work, the non-profit organization that coordinates this annual event.

In the United States, over eighty million cars and light trucks are used for daily commuting, and about 200,000 motorcycles and scooters are a regular part of this mix. On Ride to Work Day, the practical side of riding becomes more visible as a large number of America’s 8,000,000 cycles and scooters are ridden to work.

Ride to Work Day helps demonstrate how these vehicles make parking easier and help traffic flow better. Studies have shown that across equal distances, commuting motorcyclists reach their destinations in less time than those using automobiles, and that motorcycles and scooters consume less resources per mile, and that they take up less space on roads.

Motorcycle and scooter riders seek improved employer recognition and support for this form of transportation, and more public and government awareness of the positive value of riding.

The Ride to Work website includes forum areas, merchandise, information, and free promotional support materials.

Press release also available in Word and PDF formats.
