DRIVE TIME: MOTORING: Motorcyclists in UK and Europe riding high for event.

Byline: STEWART SMITH Motoring Editor

MOTORCYCLE organisations in the Netherlands and Ireland pledged their support for the UK's third national Ride To Work Day yesterday, staging coinciding events in their own countries.

The Netherlands Motorcycle Industry Association revved up Dutch motorcyclists to ride to work to show that two wheels are a congestion- beating transport alternative.

RAI worked with the Royal Dutch Motorcyclists Association, KNMV to give Dutch MPs pillion lifts to Parliament.

It also worked with the Dutch equivalent of the AA, ANWB, to analyse the usual Thursday morning traffic hold-ups compared to the morning of Ride To Work Day to prove that powered two wheelers are part of the transport solution.

Members of the Irish Motorcycle Action Group put on breakfasts for motorcyclists riding to work and held commuting contests between different types of transport to show that motorcycles ease congestion and get people to the office more quickly.
