Hey there! It’s June 20, and you know what that means, right? It’s Ride to Work Day!
The annual Ride to Work Day event is the brainchild of Andy Goldfine, Aerostich founder. Hoping to raise the public’s awareness of two-wheeled transportation, Goldfine started a non-profit organization that gets people’s butts on to their motorcycles for a ride to work at least one day out of the year.
Goldfine’s stated aims for Ride to Work Day are to demonstrate the number of motorcyclists to the general public and to politicians, to show that motorcyclists are from all occupations and all walks of life, to show that motorcyclists can reduce traffic and parking congestion in large cities, that motorcycles are for transportation as well as recreation, and that motorcycling is a social good. Quite a mouthful, but if we can help out by riding to work today (which you should be doing anyway!), we think it’s a great plan!
