Harley-Davidson World Ride

MILWAUKEE (May 6, 2014) – Take a break from the rat race on June 22-23 to join the thousands of Harley riders around the world who are shedding the shackles of responsibility and hitting the open road during the Harley-Davidson™ World Ride.

“For these two days riders will unite to blow off the daily grind and celebrate that being free is a lot more fun,” said Nigel Villiers, Harley-Davidson Director of Integrated Consumer Experience. “Riding is more appreciated when you can steal the time from something you’d rather not be doing, so let the meetings and honey-dos wait until Tuesday and just ride.”   

One World, Two Days, Millions of Miles

Launched in 2008 by the Harley Owners Group® as Million Mile Monday®, the annual riding event was expanded into the two-day Harley-Davidson World Ride in 2012 to give more riders worldwide an opportunity to participate. In 2012, participants logged 7.7 million miles, but last year as riders celebrated the 110th Anniversary of Harley-Davidson Motor Company and the 30th Anniversary of H.O.G., riders from 66 countries blitzed that record by more than 25 percent, tallying an official total of more than 10 million miles. Riders logged their miles solo, in groups large and small, and through a variety of dealer-led events around the world, united by their shared passion for motorcycling.

Whether it’s across town, cross-country, or anything in between, every mile counts and can be recorded by logging into Harley-Davidson’s online mileage accumulator at h-d.com/worldride, where a rolling odometer will record the collective distance traveled by all participants in the World Ride.
