Ride to Work Day is an international event that celebrates the joys of riding on two (sometimes 3) wheels, and also raises awareness about motorcycle safety. This international event takes place on the third Monday in June. According to ridetowork.com, riders from all across the globe participate in this annual event to show:
- “The number of motorcyclists to the general public and to politicians.”
- “That motorcyclists are from all occupations and all walks of life.”
- “That motorcyclists can reduce traffic and parking congestion in large cities.”
- “That motorcycles are for transportation as well as recreation.”
- “That motorcycling is a social good.”
