Monday was the annual Ride to Work Day. I did my bit and rode to work. I saw two other motorcycles along the way – which I usually see anyway. There were zero other motorcycles in my office parking lot. Not exactly a big showing.
What’s your take on awareness days like today and International Female Ride Day?
Female Ride Day sounds gross to me and makes me think of dogs. I hate referring to a group of women as females. It’s too animal, like David Attenborough would be narrating a documentary about women riders.
And here we see the female motorcyclist. Look at her magnificent ponytail waving in the wind. The males… taking notice.
I don’t know if these types of events do any good. People can barely concentrate on driving let alone wonder why they may see more motorcyclists than usual. Not to mention I highly doubt they go home and Google “why were there so many motorcycles on the road today.”
But on the flip side? It’s riding. And that is good.
