MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Just ride. It’s all anyone needs to do to join the thousands of motorcycle riders during the Harley-Davidson World Ride on June 27 and 28.

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 2014, participants logged more than 10 million miles on solo rides, in groups large and small, and through a variety of dealer-led events around the world. For 2015, the event retains its two-day format, but shifts to Saturday and Sunday to enable even more riders around the globe to participate.

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.

Ride participants can log their post-ride mileage directly onto the World Ride website from mobile devices and share their riding stories and photographs on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #HDworldride. Participants can also download a certificate of participation after logging their mileage on the World Ride website.
