5 reasons to ride your motorbike to work

The 25th annual Ride to Work Day will be held on Monday, June 19th.

If you didn’t know the day existed, it’s the perfect excuse to don your helmet and use your two-wheeled friend as your work steed of choice.

Perhaps you’ve never commuted by motorcycle, or are ensure about the benefits of doing so, but whatever your position, if you’ve got a bike in the garage, we’ve got five brilliant reasons you should use it to get to work.

1. Engage your mind for the day ahead

Driving a car is rarely a solitary experience, even if you’re on your own.

With a passenger, you have to make conversation and hear about last night’s boxset marathon, but even without a passenger, you probably turn to the radio for comfort and company. Either way, you’re not doing much to engage your mind for the busy day ahead.

By taking your bike to work, all of your senses are engaged and fully alert for the ride, and you’ll carry that same level of alertness into the workplace, which is no bad thing at all.

2. Make the most of the open air

If you work an office job, you’ll probably spend the majority of each day cooped up inside unable to enjoy the open air.

The same goes for the drive to work if you undertake the journey in your car or via public transport, but if you instead opt for your motorbike, you’ll get to spend precious time in the open air before heading into the office for eight hours straight.

3. Save money

This one is simple; you’ll use less fuel by taking your bike to work, because motorcycles beat most cars hands-down when it comes to MPG.

Just think - you’ll be doing your bit for the environment and your wallet!

4. You’ll have more fun

Travelling to work isn’t particularly fun, is it? That is, unless you commute using one of your most prized possessions which gives you a unique thrill every time you sit on it. Then it’s fun!

You’re a motorcyclist because you love motorcycling. So, why not take that passion and make the most of it during your daily commute?

5. Destress

Sure, a blast in the car on the way home from a stressful day in the office is all well and good, but any motorcyclist will tell you it doesn’t touch the feeling you get on two wheels.

There’s simply no better way to blow off the cobwebs and unleash every bit of pent-up frustration you’ve built up over the course of the day than by jumping on your bike for the ride home.

Wrapping up

If you decide to head out to work on your motorbike on June 19th (and beyond), you’ll likely be joined by countless likeminded individuals. It is, after all, one of the most convenient, hassle-free and enjoyable ways to start the day, after all!
