Smile National Ride Your Bike To Work Day (Monday, June 15, 2015)

I just learned about this calendar day and thought I'd share it with all who didn't know about it.

National ride your bike to work day: http://www.cyclefish.com/event/9344/

Hopefully I'll have my bike out of the shop this weekend... but for you guys that have not pulled your bikes out of the garage yet, this should be a good excuse to dust it off and get some road time on it!

Ride safe and see you all out there!

For those to lazy to click the link:

Event Description Ride your motorcycle or scooter on this day to demonstrate:

* The number of motorcyclists to the general public and to politicians.
* That motorcyclists are from all occupations and all walks of life.
* That motorcyclists can reduce traffic and parking congestion in large cities.
* That motorcycles are for transportation as well as recreation.
* That motorcycling is a social good.

Ride to Work Day was inspired by "Work to Ride - Ride to Work'" marketing materials created between 1989 and 1991 by the Aero Design and Manufacturing Company, a Minnesota based manufacturer of motorcycle riders clothing. In 1992 these items inspired motorcycle magazine editor Fred Rau to write an editorial calling for a national ride to work day.

The first annual Ride to Work Day event was proposed in Road Rider magazine (now titled Motorcycle Consumer News) in the May 1992 issue. This is an excerpt from that "Ride to Work" editorial: "You may remember several months ago when Bob Carpenter, commenting in his 'Two Up' column, mentioned how neat he thought it would be if there was one day a year when everyone who owned a motorcycle used it to ride to work. That comment was prompted by a T-shirt produced by Aerostich RiderWear that simply said, 'Work To Ride, Ride To Work.' Everyone seemed to think that a national 'Ride To Work' day was one heck of a good idea."

The first Ride to Work Day event date was July 22nd, 1992. For several years various motorcycle businesses informally promoted every third Wednesday in July as Ride To Work Day. These early advocates included Road Rider Magazine, Dunlop Tires, and Aerostich/Riderwearhouse. The event continued to grow as an informal grass roots demonstration every year until 2000. That year a non-profit organization, Ride to Work was formed to help organize and promote Ride to Work Day. The first Ride to Work Day event led by this group was the third Wednesday in July of 2001. This day was the annual day until 2008, when it was changed to the Third Monday In June. This change was made to climatically better accommodate riders world-wide, and to give more riders an opportunity to participate.

Ride to Work is a 501 c4 nonprofit, all-volunteer effort. Organizers include Andy Goldfine, Lynn Wisneski and Christine Holt.

Those are everywhere unfortunately, but as long as you are alert and make yourself seen, you'll be ok.

The more bikes on the road, the more people will see us, the more they will begin to pay attention. I think a lack of bike presence has made the general public forget about us.

I ride to work every day unless it's raining.

Why does anyone need a designated day to ride their bike to work?

I rode in nearly all this week because the sun's been nice and the rain has been distant - except today. I got caught in a little of the showers around 1630.

WELL, if the weather's nice I'll be riding to work no only the 15th, but also majority of next week as well. 0730 KSU and thus begins my drive down 99 to i10, M-F

Too many words, Bro. I have an attention span of one paragraph and it had better interest me in the first sentence or I'm moving on.

But I did go back and read three sentences, even tho it did not interest me.

I don't ride to demonstrate to politicians or anyone else. I ride because it makes me happy.

The rest is just bullshit posing.

I subscribe to this idea 100%

If you don't ride all the time, why you worried about cagers noticing you?

I usually work from home on Mondays but I may ride in like any other day. The ride to work day is usually full of entertainment as people who never ride to work, ride in traffic, etc, ride in are are out of their element.
