As the big kickoff to promote May as Motorcycle Awareness Month, on Thursday, May 1, 2014, the British Columbia Coalition of Motorcyclists (BCCOM) is presenting the 23rd Annual MLA Ride.
The MLA Ride is a motorcycle ride to the Legislature Buildings in Victoria to bring Members of the Legislative Assembly and their constituents together to discuss various issues relating to motorcycle safety, education and awareness.
The ride leaves at 9:00 am from the Tsawwassen ferry terminal, meets up with the island riders at Mayfair Mall on Blanshard Street in Victoria at 11:00 am and then proceeds to the Legislature Buildings to take the MLAs for a ride on their lunch hour and let them experience firsthand the thrill of motorcycling.
The B.C. Coalition of Motorcyclists is a professional lobbying organization that works on behalf of all motorcyclists in the province of BC and has been instrumental in promoting motorcycle safety, education and awareness. The Coalition is a membership-driven organization that relies solely on membership support to maintain a strong voice for the motorcycling community.
Some of the accomplishments of the B.C. Coalition of Motorcyclists include getting motorcycles included in HOV lane usage, assured loading on BC Ferries, designated motorcycle parking within various municipalities, getting May proclaimed as motorcycle awareness month.
