TODAY IS RIDE TO WORK DAY

By June 15, 2020General Posts

Today is the 29th Annual International Motorcycle & Scooter Ride To Work Day!

While we all know that this year is somewhat exceptional, the weather in Massachusetts looks promising today – not too hot, not too cold, and not a forecast for rain.

Some of us are still cooped up, either still waiting for that opportunity to come along, working from home, or retired. Whatever your situation, it’s a far better thing to be out on the road, even for just a little while, than sitting in front of the TV or the computer. We hope you find some time today for some wind therapy!

 

If you do ride, please remember that traffic of late is as crazy as the current times. People have gotten used to not seeing too many other vehicles on the roadways, and are regularly taking liberties with speed limits. This means the roadways are far more dangerous for motorcyclists because drivers (including motorcycle riders) have forgotten how to watch for other vehicles and know their required stopping distances, especially at faster than usual speeds.
Whatever your situation and whatever you choose, be safe, but enjoy the ride, smile, and remember to wave to your fellow riders out there!
