Bike to Work Day

    While not as popular as the pedal powered version which last for a week rather than a 24 hours, motorcycles do have their own commuting day and it is coming in June. With affiliations around the globe, Bike to Work Day for motorcycles began in the US and therefore that is where the the following stat applies. The numbers are 10 years old but we can guess that the situation has not changed dramatically.  Only 1 in 1000 people regularly commute on a motorcycle. Even if you take out the seasonal problem of getting a motorcycle to work in many places in the middle of January, that is an incredibly small number. Studies have shown that using motorcycles both reduces congestion, decreases travel times and, as most people commute alone in their car, saves a lot of fuel. With more states considering allowing lane splitting by motorcycles perhaps the percentage will increase as idling cars drivers see motorcyclist moving freely.
