On May 24, among other varied activities, Hill Air Force Base will hold a See Me Mave Me Ride of the Day inviting both on-base and off-base riders to participate in a large en mase ride.
The ride's purpose is to help remind motorists just how many motorcycles are out on the road.
On-base riders will meet at the motorcycle safety course near the South Gate at 11 a.m. sharp. The ride will start at 11:30 a.m. and go through the base past all the venues held that day as other safety day activities are held.
Once off base the Utah Highway Patrol will escort the riders to Hill Aerospace Museum and off-base riders are invited to join them there as they make their way through communities likely to include Ogden, Roy, Sunset and Layton.
Anyone interested should contact their unit motorcycle safety coordinator so Allan Woods, Installation Motorcycle Safety coordinator, will know how many riders to expect.
The ride will end at the museum.
Because the day is a safety day no annual leave is necessary to participate in the ride for Department of Defense civilians or military members.
Woods reminds motorcycle riders that there are safety in numbers and he says that a demonstration such as this serves to remind motorists that they share the road with many more motorcycle riders than they realize, ultimately contributing to the safety of other riders.
Since May is Motorcycle Safety Month and the launch of the 101 Critical Days of Summer program, watch for more information on the event and on motorcycle safety.
