Ride to Work Day 19th July 2006

Cleveland Police Press Release

The Motor Cycle Industry Association is promoting National Motorcycling Week from 16th ? 23rd July 2006, with a National Ride to Work Day on Wednesday 19th July.

By now, many motorcyclists, and the motorcycle press are aware of how positive Cleveland Police are in supporting motorcyclists, and supporting Rider Development with the ultimate goal of reducing the amount of people killed or seriously injured in any type of collision.

Of course they recognise that motorcyclists are more vulnerable which is why they work WITH Motorcyclists FOR Motorcyclists.When Officers in the Force?s dedicated Bike Section saw the date of National Ride to Work Day, they were keen to support it and make efforts to raise the profile of motorcyclists nationally.

In keeping with the spirit of National Ride to Work Day, Cleveland Police Assistant Chief Constable, Derek Bonnard will be donning his helmet to do just that, alongside some local personalities who will be making guest appearances in a Side Car.

ACC Bonnard took up the challenge of gaining his motorcycle licence last year, having never ridden a motorcycle before.  Now, bitten by the bug, he is the proud owner of a 600cc Street Bike, and is keen to join the officers in Cleveland Police Motorcycle Section in celebrating the joy of motorcycling.

ACC Bonnard said ?Not only is motorcycling a convenient, environmentally - friendly and efficient mode of transport, when used correctly, and with the right protective equipment it can turn a tedious drive to work into a much more enjoyable experience?.

The way that Cleveland Police Bike Section want to support National Ride to work day is by providing an escort for all motorcyclists who want to take part.  They are expecting a large uptake of up to 100 participants.  Anybody wishing to join in should meet up at 7am on Wednesday 19th July at Preston Hall and Museum, Yarm Road, Stockton on Tees, for a 7.30am departure.

The Bike officers will then provide a safe escort and ride out, through Stockton and Middlesbrough, finishing at Punch Street, Cannon Park, Middlesbrough, where bikers can have a free coffee before then making their way to work in their own time.

That sounds like fun - almost wish I worked in M'Bro.  ;)

Am promoting the ride to work day and will be putting posters up in prominent places this week to remind the lads.  There are a large number of them say they have bikes but have yet to see any of them as yet  :coolsmiley:

What about ride instead of work day?
Lenny: There's nothing like revenge for getting back at people.
Carl: Vengeance isn't too bad either.
