broadcasters and Newspapers in your area. The more riders who submit this

of motorcycling. All radio, TV and print news organizations must find new things
to cover every day and most will welcome positive �news� items like this. For

12th ANNUAL Nationwide Ride to Work Day
The 12th Annual Nationwide Ride to Work Day will take place on Wednesday,
July 16th, 2003. Thousands of motorcy-clists across the nation are expected
to commute to work on their motorcycles to demonstrate to the public that:

-Motorcycles are a useful form of transportation and not just recreational vehicles.
-Motorcycles get great gas mileage and help conserve resources.
-Motorcyclists ease traffic congestion.
-Motorcyclists save parking spaces by putting multiple bikes in one parking spot.
-Motorcycles wear the roads down less than heavier vehicles.
-Motorcyclists come from all walks of life, work in all occupations, and are all ages.

The American Motorcyclist Association and many local and national rider
organizations encourage all motorcyclists to ride their cycles to work on
Wednesday, July 16, 2003, to help promote a positive image of motorcycling.
