Blue Monday has been established as the worst day of the year and this year it falls on the 18th January.

So, with Christmas over and your initial New Year resolutions starting to fade why not make a new resolution something that you will find easy to stick to and get on to two wheels or doing something with your motorcycle that you have never done before. 
You can over come the most depressing day of the year by planning your motorcycle adventures for 2010. 
Training - Firstly, for people who don't ride, or have lapsed or maybe only ever completed a CBT, now's the time to reap the economic and social benefits of a powered two-wheeler.

The Motor Cycle Industry is making it easier than ever before to help interested people take their first steps into the world of motorcycling by offering a free experience, with a local trainer, that will get the riding and ready to go further in one hour at no expense.

A dedicated website has been set up to help you search for a local trainer, so go online and take those first steps at

Kit - Motorcycles and the all important kit have come along way in the last 25 years. Recently, some guinea pigs were subjected to climatic challenges at the Motor Industry Research Association's £5 million climatic chamber to compare the kit from the 80's to the most up to date products on offer. High tech fabrics and new designs resulted in warm and safe riders who were happy to ride in both cold and wet conditions with no detrimental effects to the experience.

Experience - More and more people are enjoying off-road adventures and over land travel experiences on bikes. There is a growing number of companies that provide tours to anywhere any everywhere from Canada to Africa.

MCI's Spokesperson Steve Kenward CEO  said " Don't be brought down by 'Blue Monday', you can do something positive to challenge it.

"Motorcycles and scooters are the best way to beat the ongoing credit crunch and turn the daily commute into a joy.  Two wheels will let you move through traffic, with ease. Not only that, in London they are exempt from congestion charge and can also use bus lanes.

"If you are looking for a fun and economical way to commute then start this new year differently and put on your leathers and join the 1.5million other converts. "
