Make Your Voice Heard
"Write to Ride"
Welcome to Write to Ride! The campaigns website of the leading riders' rights organisation - the Motorcycle Action Group!
Established in 1973 MAG has dramatically broadened the scope of its activity and has now established itself as the legitimate voice of the road-riding biker in the UK.
MAG is very much a grass-roots organisation, with a large number of full and affiliated members and local active groups across the UK.
You can access our campaigns by using the links on the left of this page.
LONDON BIKERS ARE VOTERS 2008
MAG would like to help you, as a motorcyclist and voter, to make up your mind, based on informed judgement, on who should be voted in as London’s Mayor when voting takes place on Thursday 1st May 2008.
SAVE THE ISLE OF WIGHT MOTORCYCLE TEST CENTRE
The Isle of Wight is threatened with the loss of its motorcycle testing centre under proposals to deliver the new motorcycle test which will be introduced in October 2008.
The situation in which the Isle of Wight finds itself highlights a UK wide problem in that some remote areas like Scotland and Wales will not have a MPTC within a reasonable travelling distance. The DSA state that most motorcyclists will not have to make a journey which would take longer than 45 minutes in time or 20 miles in distance to get to an MPTC. Clearly if the Isle of Wight were to lose its testing centre then this would not be the case.
MANCHESTER CONGESTION CHARGING
The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG UK) says that proposals contained in Manchester’s congestion charging scheme to charge motorcycles are the thin end of the wedge as cities in the UK wait in line to implement future national road pricing plans.
MAG is amazed that the authorities in Manchester have even considered charging motorcycles, when the London congestion charging scheme has proved successful and beneficial to congestion busting motorcycles.
EVSC - ISA - NO THROTTLE CONTROL - NO CONTROL
MAG re launches its 2001 campaign to oppose the compulsory fitment to privately owned vehicles of any device designed to arbitrarily remove control from the driver to remote operation and asks all vehicle users to sign the Mulhouse Declaration.
Its not just about speed control technology on motorcycles.
