APL Bikers With a Cause
Sixteen members of APL's Motorcycle Club took part
this summer in the 12th annual Ride Your Motorcycle to Work
Day. The national event promotes motorcycle awareness and
the positive effects this form of transportation has on the
"Motorcycles take up less parking space and contribute
less to congestion than cars," said Jim Hemler (shown at
far right), president of the APL Motorcycle Club. "This
ride was an opportunity to make the public more aware of
the positive aspects of being a bike owner and how diverse
the bike-riding population is."
The APL Motorcycle Club began in the early 1960s but
was inactive until it was revitalized in 2000 by security
officer Kathy Payne. Today it has 70 members.
