Monday, June 20 marks the 25th Ride to Work Day, an annual event created to show the general public that motorcyclists are their friends and neighbors and that there are lots of us out there sharing the roads with them.
And that reminded us of the cheeky and hilarious video put together by Ride To Work Day UK we posted a few years ago.
Make sure your bike is ready to roll for your commute to work this Monday! It’s in our best interests for non-riders to see that we’re a responsible and friendly part of the transportation equation. Check out the Ride To Work Day website: http://www.ridetowork.org/
British Ride To Work Day Video Gets A Little Cheeky
June 5, 2012
The 21st annual Ride to Work Day is less than two weeks away so this is the right time to help get the word out and remind riders (or at least, to those who don’t already commute on their bikes daily) to park their cars and ride their bikes on June 18.
Ride to Work Day organizers in the United Kingdom are spreading the word with a humorous commercial that is probably a bit too risque for television, at least on this side of the Atlantic. Thank goodness for the Internet however.
It’s a fun video with a twist ending but it does carry a couple of important messages. First, it’s important to wear proper safety gear, and secondly, riding to work saves time, time that could be used for … other activities.
