23rd Annual Ride to Work Day is Monday, June 16

Monday, June 16th is the 23rd Annual International Motorcycle & Scooter Ride to Work Day. The event began in 1992 as a result of an idea proposed in the now-defunct Road Rider magazine. You die-hard history geeks can view the organization’s website here.

A couple things of keen interest to motorcycle riders everywhere on their website: One, a nice collection of official reports regarding the effects of motorcycles on traffic congestion, specifically with regard to lane splitting. Two, a collection of official proclamations from eight cities across North America, specifically endorsing the 2014 Ride to Work day. I find it appalling that none are from California and interesting that nearly all are from “northern” states and Canada. They are; Anchorage, AK, Danville, VA, Elkhart, IN, Salt Lake City, UT, Townsend, MA, Denver, CO, Kenosha, WI, and Yellowknife, NT, Canada. I mean, what’s the riding season in Alaska? June? And they’re on board? What’s California’s problem?

The idea of RTW is, of course, to raise awareness about motorcycles and their benefits in terms of viable transportation and recreation. The weather is going to be nice this weekend, so take a few minutes to polish or tune up that scoot. Leave your “cage” in the driveway Monday morning in favor of the two-wheeler and enjoy using the diamond lane, 24/7. See ya out there, brother and sisters.

Until next time, stay tuned and upright,

Jack
