Cambridgeshire County Councilâ€™s Road Safety Team and Cambridgeshire Police are supporting International Ride to Work Day on Monday, June16 with an event organised in association with Cambridgeshire BikeSafe.
Riders are invited to gather from 7am. at the Lazy Dayz CafÃ© on the A603 at Wimpole. At 8am a fully escorted ride will make its way into Cambridge, passing along Regent Street, through the city centre, then travelling up Castle Hill to the final destination at Shire Hall.
Road Safety Officers and Police motorcyclists will be promoting Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnershipâ€™s TWIST motorcycle safety campaign (http://www.twistandride.net/) and participants in the event will also be asked to make a donation to The Road Victims Trust.
Simon Burgin, Collision Investigator for Cambridgeshire Police, said: â€œRide to Work Day provides us with a great opportunity to promote the benefits of motorcycling. Even if you canâ€™t join us for the ride, why not see if riding to work helps you commute happy.â€
Lyn Hesse Road Safety Officer said: â€œMotorcyclists are among the most vulnerable road users so events like this are an ideal opportunity for us to raise awareness of rider safety. Police Officers will join the ride and will be on hand to offer riding advice to help reduce riderâ€™s chances of being involved in a collision.â€
