The Motorcycle Confederation of Canada, a supporter of the yearly Ride to Work day, is encouraging motorcyclists and scooter riders to help raise public awareness by riding their machines to work on July 16th.

"Adding more motorcycles and scooters to everyone's daily commute makes urban parking easier and traffic flow better", according to Ride to Work, a non-profit advocacy organization.

Organizers claim that studies have shown that across the same distances, motorcyclists reach their destinations faster than those using other forms of transportation. Many motorcycles and scooters also consume fewer resources per kilometre.

"Riding to work on this day is fun and shows the positive value of motorcycling. For many people, riding is a socially responsible form of mobility that saves energy, helps the environment and provides a broad range of other public benefits," stated Andy Goldfine, this year's event organizer.
