During the first week of April, "AMA Go Ride Your Way!" week taps into the individualism of motorcycling on favorite trails and twisties. Riders are invited to post pictures of their favorite rides on the AMA Facebook page at www.facebook.com/americanmotorcyclist and send stories describing their favorite rides to firstname.lastname@example.org. The best story will be featured on the AMA Go Ride! Month blog.
AMA Go Ride! Month is also the launch of a special edition of AMA Flash Tours with a contest for street and dirt riders. The AMA Up, Down, All-Around Flash Tour invites motorcyclists to photograph a trip to the highest, lowest or most remote part of their state, or an historical or cultural landmark unique to the state. Each week a winner will be selected to receive a Helmetlok next-generation lock and cable set. Plus, all qualifying entrants will be entered into a month-end drawing to receive great prizes, including a Shoei helmet, Tour Master Intake jacket and Cortech tank bags, courtesy of AMA partner Helmet House.
Also during each week of AMA Go Ride! Month, "Freedom Friday" will alert motorcyclists to important issues that pose threats to motorcycling freedoms. Watch for the first Freedom Friday announcement on April 5. A Freedom Friday contest will also launch that day, and each week in April two lucky AMA members will win an AMA gift bag and a BikeBandit.com gift card. Contestants will also be entered into the month-end drawing for Helmet House prizes.
AMA Go Ride! Month encourages motorcyclists everywhere to enjoy the thrill of riding in the dirt and on the street. During AMA Go Ride Your Way! week, AMA members can access some wonderful resources on the members' section of the AMA website.
