The Harley-Davidson World Ride will take place this year on June 22-23. Started in 2008 by the Harley Owners Group as Million Mile Monday, the annual riding event was extended into a two-day world ride in 2012 to give more riders an opportunity to participate. Be it across the city or cross-country, every kilometre covered by the participants can be recorded by logging into the company's online distance accumulator at h-d.com/worldride.
Riders can log the covered distance irrespective of how they ride, be it solo or large and small groups, and also through a variety of dealer-led events across the 13 chapters in India. As part of the world ride, more than hundred H-D owners from India will ride to Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh. In 2013, India ranked amongst the top five countries contributing 9,83,432 kilometres to the global tally.
Participants can also log their post-ride distance directly onto the World Ride website from mobile devices and share their stories and photographs on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter using the hash tag #HDworldride. A certificate of participation can also be availed after logging the distance covered, on the World Ride website.
