Mark Tuesday, June 11, on your calendar and join fellow motorcyclists as we saddle up for the 33rd annual Ride to Work Day.

Ride to Work is a nonprofit organization that advocates for “the use of motorcycles and scooters for transportation, providing information about everyday utility riding to the public.” The event was inspired by the “Work to Ride – Ride to Work” marketing materials from 1989-1991 by Aero Design and Manufacturing Company (now called Aerostich), with the first annual RTW Day taking place in 1992. Now, RTW takes place each year on the second Tuesday in June.

RTW Day helps raise awareness of motorcyclists on roads, and the purpose of the event is to demonstrate the following:

  • The number of motorcyclists to the general public and politicians
  • Motorcyclists are from all occupations and all walks of life
  • Motorcyclists can reduce traffic congestion in large cities
  • Motorcycles are for transportation as well as recreation

In keeping with these goals, the RTW website offers an extensive list of resources for both cities and advocates, from information about lane splitting laws and parking regulations to research and articles about the benefits of using motorcycles as transportation.
