Ahead of this year’s Ride to Work Day, the Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) says it remains “astounded by the Government’s continued refusal to promote the clear benefits of modal shift from single occupancy cars to motorcycles”.
Ride To Work day is an annual event which aims to encourage more people to commute on two wheels by highlighting the associated benefits.
The 2022 event, which takes place on 20 June, seeks to encourage record-breaking numbers of riders to participate.
In order to ‘create a buzz’, MAG has updated its Ride to Work Day campaign website, with a number of blog posts supplementing additional campaign information and resources.
Colin Brown, MAG’s director of campaigns and political engagement, said: “As riders I am sure we are all aware that we cannot rely on anyone else to promote the benefits of riding a motorcycle to work.
“I remain astounded by the Government’s continued refusal to promote the clear benefits of modal shift from single occupancy cars to motorcycles. But their myopia is in no way reflective of a fundamental flaw in the logic. I know that, you know that.
“So, let’s take this opportunity to create a buzz – to get the rest of the world to wake up to the opportunities that are being missed.”
