HONDA (UK) ENCOURAGES RIDERS TO 'GET ON' AND 'RIDE TO WORK'

Staff at Honda (UK) showed their support for the industry initiative 'Ride to Work Day', which encourages motorcycle and scooter riders to demonstrate just how enjoyable and practical their daily commute and how things could be improved if more people commuted on motorcycles and scooters every day - reducing journey time, alleviating traffic congestion, lowering travel costs and being more considerate towards the environment. A huge number of riders rode their diverse Honda machines into the company's head office near Slough, where everyone gathered for a group photograph and 'bikers' breakfast', including non-rider colleagues.

Throughout the day, many more staff took the opportunity to get on two-wheels by taking advantage of the 'ride out' and 'have a go' sessions. Employees were offered the chance to ride some of the new for 2013 Honda models, including the CB1100, MSX125 and 500 model series, or popular commuter scooters such as the SH125i and NSC50R - with the car park at Honda HQ transformed into a riding school for the day.

'Ride to Work Day' sits perfectly alongside the Motorcycle Industry's national 'Get On' campaign, which is encouraging thousands of new people into biking and also offers free one hour riding taster sessions at numerous motorcycle training schools around the country. Visit www.geton.co.uk to find out more and book your own free 'have a go' experience.
