This year, Ride to Work Day kicks off Ride to Work Week, 16th-22nd June 2014. On Ride to Work Day, motorbike and scooter riders around the world show just how enjoyable their daily commute is. By riding to work we demonstrate that life would be better if more people rode motorcycles and scooters every day, with time savings, less congestion and reduced travel costs. Ride with us and commute happy!

Why take part?

If you already commute on two wheels, great

By taking part in National Ride to Work Day you’ll encourage others to Get On too. We’ll also remind other road users that we all share our daily journey to work, and it’s more pleasant if we all look out for one another. And policymakers will see what a vital part of the transport mix motorcyclists are.

Share the fun

It’s a great chance to get a friend into riding. Give them a lift into work on your motorbike or scooter. Better still, get them to do a Free Ride through Get On. If they like it, there may still be time for them to do their CBT (the minimum level of training needed) before June 17, and then ride to work on their own motorcycle!

If you have a scooter or motorbike but don’t usually use it to go to work

this is your chance to find out just how much time and hassle you could save, and how good it feels to be doing your bit to reduce congestion instead of adding to it. If you start riding to work just one day a week, over the year you’ll save lots of time and cash. If everyone did the same thing, the roads would be that bit clearer.

Visit our Travel Savings Calculator at Get On to find out how much you could save on your daily commute.

If you are a new rider

If you’re a new rider and want to start riding more regularly, this is a great opportunity.  Just click ‘Going’ on our Ride to Work UK Facebook event and leave a message on the event wall and we’ll try to put you in touch with a more experienced rider who could be your riding buddy on the day.

Not riding yet, but think it’s a great idea?

Head over to Get On and you can book a Free Motorcycle Ride – a one hour trial session on a scooter or motorbike with a qualified instructor.  It costs nothing and you don’t need a motorcycle licence, so it’s the ideal way to find out if motorcycling is for you.
