Letter: Ride to Work Day

In many parts of the country, particularly those with vibrant local economies like ours, automotive “gridlock” is rapidly becoming an unattractive fact of life. Traffic and parking congestion are accompanied by decreasing air quality and deteriorating road and bridge surfaces due to the greatly increased use of single-occupancy automobiles for daily transportation.

Our local administration holds the key to an economical, efficient and fun way to commute, by supporting the 23rd annual worldwide Ride to Work Day today. On this day, motorcycle and scooter riders will gladly thank the city of Aspen’s efforts to promote motorcycle and scooter parking and more public and government awareness of the positive value of riding.

Please join Aspen as well as hundreds of other communities and organizations, along with millions of motorcyclists worldwide in support of Ride to Work Day, and stay informed about the continued benefits of supporting daily motorcycle and scooter commuting.

Thank you, Aspen, for your support.

Will Rutledge
