Seeing so many of us (bikers) out on a single day is a great reminder for motorists to watch out for us all the time. -Jason Waechter

Ride to Work Day started back in 1992, when a column in Road Rider magazine (now Motorcycle Consumer News) suggested that at least one day a year, everyone who had a motorcycle should ride it in to work. The idea was that having a set day for everybody to ride to work would help promote motorcycling culture and community, while also raising motorcycle awareness among other motorists. In the beginning, Ride to Work Day was a loosely organized event promoted by different motorcycle businesses, but in 2000, the non-profit organization Ride to Work was formed and took over the event, moving it from mid-July to the third Monday in June. Today, ridetowork.org uses the power of the Internet and social media to promote Ride to Work Day. Along with the United States, other countries including Canada, Ecuador, France, Germany, Great Britain, Israel, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Turkey, and Russia also host a Ride to Work Day each year.
Attorney Jason Waechter, known for over 20 years as The Motorcycle Lawyer, fully supports Ride to Work Day. "I'm a rider myself," he says, "so any opportunity I get to jump on my bike, I take. This is a great event." He adds, "I think that on this day, motorists say to themselves 'wow, there are a lot of motorcycles on the road today!' This realization helps demonstrate to car and truck drivers that there are more and more motorcyclists out there." He adds, "Seeing so many of us out on a single day is a great reminder for motorists to watch out for us all the time."
Waechter is a big promoter of motorcycle awareness and safety. Through his website, http://www.themotorcyclelawyer.com, he provides safety tips and information for motorcyclists and other motorists about how everyone can work together to promote safe motorcycling. Recently, Waechter and his team have been monitoring the proposed changes to Michigan's no-fault insurance laws, as he believes that these changes could be devastating to motorcycle accident victims.
"On Monday morning, get on your bike and take it to work. It will help you start your week off on the right foot," says Waechter.
