FEMA’s news update

FEMA’s news update
This is a news update from FEMA, the Federation of European Motorcyclists’ Associations.
FEMA’s mission is to promote riders’ interests, to defend riders’ rights and to protect and preserve motorcycling throughout Europe and globally.

COVID-19: statement by the FEMA president
We are all living in difficult times and maybe riding your motorcycle is not your first concern right now. The political motorcycle work continues across Europe, in your own country as well as Brussels. FEMA staff are working from home with planned meetings turned into conference calls. FEMA member organizations are also continuing to work as much as possible where circumstances allow, often from home. Several organizations have had to cancel or postpone not just political work meetings, but also their own internal meetings and fundraising events such as rallies.

Motorcycling isn’t going to disappear but all of us need to ensure that the organizations which represent us, fighting to keep motorcycling safe and affordable, remain healthy too. So please, even if you’re not riding for a while, support your national organization with your subscription. Make sure you renew your membership, or if you are not a member join today. Let us all show solidarity across Europe with our national organizations and also with motorcycle-related businesses and their employees. Help to make sure the motorcycling community is ready to flourish again when the worst of the pandemic is over. We can get through this together!

Stay safe.

Anna Zee,
FEMA president.
