Stay Safe and Keep Your Right to Ride Your Cycle, Don’t Drink and Drive, Call Motorcycle Dial A Ride

I was enjoying a beverage in a local bar this past weekend and noticed that the coaster my drink was sitting on was a dial-a-ride for motorcyclists.  It’s funded by Minnesota Motorcyclists and has a twist to just a ride home if you’re too drunk to drive, they’ll also trailer your cycle!

Just a bit more about the organization, Motorcycle Dial-A-Ride, Inc. is a non-profit 501c3 volunteer organization established in 1990 to educate Minnesota motorcyclists about the consequences of riding and drinking, to encourage the use of intervention methods to prevent impaired riders from riding, and to provide free and safe transportation for impaired motorcyclists, their passengers and their motorcycle to their home or another safe location.

Motorcycle Dial-A-Ride, Inc. service is available throughout the entire state of Minnesota on weekends and holidays from 6:00 P.M. on Friday through bar closing time on Sunday nights. This free service is available from the last weekend in April through the last weekend in October and includes the legal holidays of Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day when they fall during the week.

Here’s what you do if you need them.  If you’re in the State of Minnesota call the toll free number, 1-888 DIALRID(E) OR 1-888-342-5743 during the hours of service. The call will be answered by an experienced Motorcycle Dial-A-Ride Inc, board member who will locate and dispatch one of the over 500 volunteers state-wide. The volunteer will service the request for assistance by showing up in a vehicle towing a motorcycle trailer so that the motorcyclist, their passenger and their motorcycle can be transported safely.

I’ve seen a lot more motorcycles on the road now that the sun is shining and the temps are warmer.  Be as watchful for them, as they are for you.  If you’re riding a motorcycle, don’t drink and drive.  Stay safe, put their number (1.888.342.5743) in your cell phone and when you need them call Motorcycle Dial-A-Ride.
