Go For A Ride Day

With so many distractions in the house, many of us spend way too much time indoors. There is a whole big world to explore, and what better way than to get out and go for a ride? This is exactly what is expected on November 22nd, as it is Go For A Ride Day. We’re always glued to a screen of some sort, so why not get out and enjoy the greatest view in the world – the outdoors!

What Is Go For A Ride Day?

The clue really is in the question; it’s about taking the car out for a spin. Remembering the freedom that comes with passing your test, we all take it for granted. Imagine if you did not have access to the wheels that take you from A to B every day.

History will tell us that the world used to feel so big, with a voyage from Europe to the Americas taking weeks and months. Now we can do it in a matter of hours. The same goes for getting around town; it takes a minute, but going cross-country a hundred years ago and beyond? Forget it; it just wasn’t happening.

Via horseback, it would have been considered an adventure, so why not remember that sense of what it means to get out and explore the great outdoors in your car? Go For A Ride Day celebrates the freedom of being able to go where you want when you want. No more taking it for granted. The 1950s saw the start of car culture emerge. What followed were roads, highways, and laws connecting cities and people. Let’s not forget our sense of adventure.

How To Observe Go For A Ride Day?

The obvious way is to get out, rev up the car, and hit the country roads or the highway. Go to a favorite spot, and check out the great outdoors, and all it has to offer. See how many people you can get to join you or go in a convoy. Although there are driverless cars nowadays, this is a chance to get your hands on the wheel and appreciate what it means to get out for a ride.

This is all about making memories, so try not to just head out to the shop and back. Sure, this constitutes a ride, but why not plan for this big day in advance? If you do not have access to a car, then this doesn’t have to stop you. Plenty of people around America will be taking a bus, hopefully on a scenic route, to make the most of the day.

It’s important to note that there are many ways to observe this day. It could be on horseback or a scooter. This is all about getting out above all else. A ride can come in many forms, as long as you are outside, away from your phone for a while, and making it memorable in some form. On November 22nd, get out and Go For A Ride.
