ARE YOU A MOTORCYCLE FRIENDLY COMPANY?
May 7 2004. The Motor Cycle Industry Association (MCI) is holding a competition to find the 'Most Motorcycle Friendly Company' on Ride 2 Work Day 28th July 2004.

Ride to work day is a national event organised by the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCI) to encourage people to travel to work by moped, motorcycle or scooter to demonstrate the positive aspects associated with using a powered two-wheeler.

The aim of the competition is for companies or organisations to get as many of their employees to travel to work by motorcycle, moped or scooter. The winner will be the company that produces the highest percentage of people who have travelled to work by Powered Two Wheeler.

The winner gets a free motorcycle park worth more than £1,500 for the benefit of the employees.

Last year the event was supported by a diverse range of organisations including BBC Worldwide, Ministry of Defence and Excel.

The winner in 2003 was Pfizer. Site Director, Stella Eccles said, " We have an innovative green transport plan that supports the needs of our staff and cares for the environment. We actively encourage our colleagues to travel 'green' by using public transport, the bus, train or walk or bike into work"

Samantha Tyson-Evans, MCI PR Officer said " Ride 2 Work Day is an opportunity for companies to encourage people to ride to work using transport that reduces congestion and is better for the environment.

"Entering the competition is a fun way of promoting motorcycles and scooters and demonstrating that riders come from all walks of life. It is also the opportunity to win a motorcycle car park worth £1,500."
