Ride to Work Day Celebrates 20th anniversary on June 20th.

Ride to Work Day is scheduled for Monday, June 20th. Former American Motorcyclist Association board member and motorcycle enthusiast Andy Gofldfine first started this day twenty years ago. Andy says, "It makes your life richer and better to be on a motorcycle, and ride anywhere you would otherwise be driving." Take this quote into consideration when you are getting ready to leave home on the 20th.

This year marks the 20th anniversary for Ride to Work Day. So how exactly has this day culminated into what it is today? Goldfine altered a popular saying "Ride to Live, Live to Ride," into "Work to Ride, Ride to Work" for stitch work on clothes. This caught the attention of Motorcycle Consumer News, who, in turn, compelled Andy to campaign for a National Ride to Work Day. Since the Internet came along the word has spread and more and more motorcyclist are riding to work on this designated day.
The national Ride to Work Organization has shown that "...across equal distances, commuting motorcyclists reach their destinations in less time than those using automobiles, and that motorcycles and scooters consume less resources per mile, and that they take up less space on roads." Riding a motorcycle to work seems to simply be more practical. Join us on Ride to Work Day to show unity among motorcyclist nationwide. Ride to work on June 20th for the 20th Anniversary of Ride to Work Day. For more information go to http://www.adfarrow.com
