MEP Ride 2007
In September the Motorcycle Action Group (MAG UK) headed to Europe for the 11th Annual MEP motorcycle ride from the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

Focus
The ride focussed on three issues: The presentation of FEMA’s revised “European Agenda for Motorcycle Safety” - The European Commission’s Green Paper on Urban Transport - and to draw attention to the initial rejection of a European Infrastructure Directive by the TRAN Committee in the European Parliament.

Essential Event
The event has become an essential part of MAG’s lobbying and is one of the most popular events for European parliamentarians. The event not only presents the serious side of motorcycling but significantly gives them an opportunity to experience the fun of motorcycling.”
