July 19, 2004 – The AMA encourages all motorcyclists to ride their cycles to work on Wednesday, July 21, the 13th annual Ride to Work Day.
Participation in the yearly demonstration is estimated to triple the number of riders on the road, and help show the public that motorcyclists come from all walks of life, work in all occupations, and range in age from teenagers to great-grandparents.
Each weekday in the United States, more than 80 million cars and light trucks commute on American roads, but only about 200,000 of the more than 6 million registered motorcycles are regularly used for daily transportation.
Adding more motorcycles to the mix can help make urban parking easier and traffic flow better, according to Ride to Work, a non-profit advocacy organization. Studies have also shown that urban motorcyclists reach their destinations faster than those using automobiles, and that most motorcycles consume less resources per mile than typical automobiles.
"Riding to work on this day shows the positive value of motorcycling for transportation. For many people, riding is a socially responsible form of personal mobility that saves energy and provides a broad range of other public benefits," stated Andy Goldfine, the event organizer.
