there should be some bikes riding around downtown. good way to get the word out that we are here, so look out.

contact the mayor to get her to give us free parking. Her email is mayor@houstontx.gov


Dear Annise Parker,



This year the 20th annual Motorcycle and Scooter Ride to Work Day is Monday, June 20th. On this day over a million workers will commute via motorcycles and scooters to demonstrate the efficiency and other positive benefits of these vehicles.



Your administration and city can support and encourage this popular grass-roots event by issuing an official proclamation. To encourage riding, some cities also announce that on this day motorcycles and scooters may park at municipal ramps and metered spaces without charge. Your city will be joining hundreds of cities, groups and organizations worldwide already supporting the annual Ride to Work Day.



Studies have shown the public benefits of riding are substantial, and include:

-- Motorcycles and scooters make more spaces for everyone else, because several fit in each space.

-- Motorcycles and scooters consume far less resources per mile than most other mobility technologies.

-- Motorcycles and scooters reduce traffic congestion and save travel time.

-- Riding is fun and helps make people more alert and engaged.



On an average weekday over eighty million cars and light trucks are used for daily commuting on American roads, and only about 200,000 motorcycles and scooters are a part of this mix. On Ride to Work Day the practical side of riding becomes more visible because a large number of America’s 8,000,000 cycles are ridden to work.



Motorcycle and scooter riders seek both government and employer support for riding’s broad benefits. Over 100 American cities have already proclaimed support for Ride to Work Day (See http://ridetowork.org/2011-supporting-cities for a list and .pdf’s of the proclamations.) Providing free motorcycle and scooter parking on Ride to Work Day is a popular way to showcase this highly beneficial form of transportation.



We appreciate your support.



Sincerely,

The videos were made in the past, I believe this is ridetowork.org's 5th year.

Has any organized group ever petitioned the city council to lower parking prices for motorcycles or designate motorcycle parking Downtown? I think it is ridiculous for bikes to pay the same amount for parking as cagers.

This could be fun, and or Funny. I sell Airconditioning for a living. I wonder how customers will react to a biker pulling up to their home...

I know what my Dad the Owner will say.


But he lives in Dallas, so what he doesn't know can't hurt me, right?
