PICKERINGTON, OH – April 11, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  The American Motorcyclist Association is continuing its annual celebration of the riding season during AMA Go Ride! Month. Go Ride the Unknown Week, April 11-17, highlights the fun of exploring new roads and trails on motorcycles.

“Motorcycles are more than mere modes of transportation,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “They are the keys to unforgettable vistas, barren mountain passes, remote wilderness and all the amazing backcountry landscapes America has to offer.

“During Go Ride the Unknown Week, we encourage all motorcyclists to explore their world the best way we know how: from the seat of a motorcycle,” Massey said.

The AMA’s partner for Go Ride the Unknown Week is TomTom. TomTom’s Rider400 motorcyclist-friendly GPS device is designed to support exploration, helping riders explore new roads with their cool “plan a thrill” feature. This week, participants will have a chance to win their own TomTom RIDER 400 GPS unit.

AMA members and other riders are invited to share photos and engage with the AMA on social media, or simply enter a drawing. Details will be shared at both www.facebook.com/americanmotorcyclist and through the AMA Twitter account @ama_riding.

Every April, the AMA highlights cool stuff to do on two wheels as part of AMA Go Ride! Month. It is the annual reminder that motorcycling is the best way to go to work, go out on the town, go see the country or just go have fun. Each week will feature a new opportunity to win a cool prize from an AMA partner.
