Ride Your Motorcycle to Work Day
In order to raise awareness and advance safety for motorcyclists on WA roads, the Motorcycle Riders Association of WA (MRAWA) is holding Ride Your Motorcycle to Work Day (RYMWD) tomorrow, Wednesday 14 October.
A highlight of this years Motorcycle Safety Week, the aim of RYMWD is to show other road users that motorcyclists are regular people who come from all walks of life.
Riders are encouraged to commute into work on their motorcycle or scooter or take their helmet in to remind other road users that many West Australians use motorcycles or scooters to commute to work.
“The day aims to show the public just how many motorcycles there are on our roads,” said Jeff Thomas, President of MRAWA.
“Motorcycles are a cheaper way to travel and certainly a nicer way to travel - there are plenty of benefits including easy parking, less fuel and less pollution.”
The MRAWA reports that in previous years RYMWD has almost tripled the number of riders on the roads. The Road Safety Commission reminds all road users share the roads responsibly, abide by the road rules and be courteous to each other.
Riders can use the hashtags #rideyourbiketoworkday
in support of the day.
