The 21st annual motorcycle Ride to Work Day is June 18th.
Our current culture largely considers motorcycles as “toys” which is unfortunate as they deserve a much larger status as a legitimate mode of personal transportation.
The third Monday in June is an opportunity to highlight motorcycles as a viable, fun and fuel-efficient mode of transportation. It’s expected that over a million commuters will participate, demonstrating the positive benefits of riding.
Last year the City of Portland, and Mayor Sam Adams proclaimed the third Monday of June as Ride to Work Day, so I encourage you to participate and use the day as a reminder to get involved in the motorcycle community.
