Toronto, ON April 29, 2016

The Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC) is thrilled to announce the start of Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month which runs annually from May 1st to May 31st to promote a better and safer riding experience for all.

“Motorcycling is a great sport and recreational activity and riders can do a few simple things like riding sober, keeping their speed in check and riding according to their abilities,” said MCC Chair, David Millier. “It’s also important to remind motorists that motorcycles are back on the road so motorists use extra caution and look twice when making left hand turns.

And when having fun on the trails, riding with a friend and having a plan is key to a having a great day of fun.

For 2016, MCC has launched Ride Smart to Ride Again to raise awareness about the importance of safety as the motorcycling season gets underway.

The recreational motorcycling community in Canada is made up of both on-road and off-road riders. The Ride Smart to Ride Again campaign asks riders to take these actions to help them come home safe:

  • Ride Sober
  • Be Alert for Left Turning Vehicles
  • Watch Your Speed
  • Make a Plan, Be Prepared, Share the Plan
  • Build Skills and Confidence, Take a Course

“We want everyone to have a great and safe riding season in 2016”, said Millier. “May is a time to redouble our safety efforts, celebrate the many benefits of motorcycling and

remind other motorists to keep an eye out for us.”

The Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada (MCC) is the national not-for-profit advocacy organization for the promotion of motorcycling safety and interests. For more information on the Ride Smart to Ride Again campaign, visit www.motorcycling.ca/ridesafe and stay connected with the campaign by following along on Twitter and Facebook for updates, events and safety tips!
