When: Wednesday 14th October 2020
What: Riders are encouraged to ride their motorcycle or scooter on this day.
If you can't ride then take your motorcycle helmet to work to show others that riders are just regular people who deserve consideration on our roads.
This event can more than triple the number of riders on some roads. Most motorcycle and scooter clubs and organisations encourage riders to commute by motorcycle or scooter on this day. Riders seek employer recognition and support for this form of transportation and increased public and government awareness of the societal positive benefits of utility riding.
More motorcycles and scooters helps traffic flow better. Studies have shown that across the same distances, riders reach their destinations up to 20 percent faster than those using automobiles. Most motorcycles and scooters also consume fewer resources per kilometre than automobiles. “Riding to work on this day is fun and highlights value of motorcycling. Riding is a form of personal mobility that saves energy, helps the environment and provides a broad range of public benefits.
If you are unable to ride your motorcycle or scooter on this day we would encourage you to take your motorcycle helmet to work to show others that riders are just regular people who deserve consideration on our roads.
What if you can't ride that day? **
Take your helmet to work to show others that riders are just regular people who deserve consideration on our roads.
Take a selfie of you, your bike, your helmet, you in your workplace, anything to show that you ride.
** Use the hashtags #rideyourbiketoworkday and #mrawa in your post, so we can show people how united we are.
