According to The Other Wiki the idea of witches riding on brooms goes back to at least 1453. In the original woodcuts, they've got the head or brush part in front, logical enough since the original witch's broom was a staff with a carved phallic end and the brush was tied on as a disguise. Today's depictions most often put the head in the back, for sake of an aerodynamic appearance (and for similarity with an exhaust pipe or jet engine).
As brooms aren't exactly designed to be ridden upon, riding one would require really good balance so as not to fall off, especially when really high up. Prospective witches and warlocks should also try not to land wrong while sitting on their brooms either or you'll end up "Riding the Rail" if you know what I mean. At some point, witches were portrayed as riding the brooms side-saddle, similar to how women traditionally rode horseback. If two witches are shown together, the difference in how they sit on their brooms usually relates to a Tomboy and Girly Girl dynamic.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Another (considerably more NSFW) explanation involves sex and drugs, in a certain sense. Accounts from the 16th century revealed that witches' potions contained hallucinogens that, when consumed, gave the sensation of flying. As oral ingestion put them at risk of overdosing, suspected witches applied these hallucinogenic potions topically. It turns out the most effective places for absorption through the skin were on the armpits and in their lady parts, where the broom turned out to be quite handy. In other words, riding a broom is really a 500-year-old Double Entendre.
Appearance-wise, these broomsticks are almost always the old-fashioned kind made by tying bristles in a rough cone around the end of a long stick; modern brooms are very rarely put to such uses. When they are, it'll often be as a joke on witches getting on with changing times. In these cases, however, it's likelier for the joke to be pushed further and to show the witch riding around on a vacuum cleaner; at least one show moves on to a witch flying on roombas, as an ultra-modern broom.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Similar to the Magic Carpet, which is also a flying object but has unrelated origins and applications.
For the Speculative Fiction version see Rocket Ride. Compare Sky Surfing, in which various flying objects are ridden on while standing: particularly daredevil witches may well do this on their brooms. If also used as a weapon, it's a Broomstick Quarterstaff.

In The Smurfs comic book story "The Flying Smurf", the titular character creates one by using a magic spell on an ordinary broom, but it ends up flying without him, and after Papa Smurf finds the book that Flying Smurf used and puts it back in his laboratory, Flying tries to create another flying broom with no success. (This was later used in the Animated Adaptation of the comic book story "The Astro Smurf").

Played with in the Tom and Jerry one-reeler The Flying Sorceress. While cleaning up a mess he made, Tom finds am 'Help Wanted' ad in the paper. He follows up on the ad, to find the ad was placed by a witch. When he takes her broom for a joyride, the witch punishes him by enchanting the broom to shake him through - which causes Tom to wake up clinging to his home broom and realize it was All Just a Dream. He then seats himself on the (mundane) broom he's using to clean, kicks it like a motorbike ... and the broom comes to life and flies away with him.

While Izetta of Izetta: The Last Witch is first seen riding the traditional broomstick, the magic is hers, not the broom's. When she has to catch her beloved Princess Finé from a still-airborne plane wreck, she grabs the closest available substitute: an anti-tank rifle. (A flying boomstick, perhaps?) The gun performs beautifully as a substitute; Izetta can stay abreast of fighter planes doing 400 kilometers per hour, and shoot them down besides.

Ah! My Goddess:
The opening credits of the OVAs from the 1990s briefly show Belldandy on a broomstick, followed by Skuld riding a vaguely broom-shaped flying machine, and finally (in a subversion of a subversion) Urd riding a canister vacuum with the hose draped around her like a feather boa.
In the manga, Urd's broomstick is so jazzed up with magic, it is sentient. When Belldandy borrows it, love blooms. Weird, twisted, "sweep with me!" love. Yes, sweep.

In the Harry Potter universe, flying broomsticks come in a variety of makes and models. Then there are the spells that go with them and a popular sport, Quidditch, that employs them.
In Quidditch Through the Ages, it is said that brooms come with a cushioning charm on them, so Harry Potter has A Wizard Did It Handwave. Quidditch Through the Ages also lampshades how these are probably the magical community's worst-kept secret, stating that "no Muggle drawing of a wizard or witch is complete without one."
Defictionalization: Mattel briefly produced a battery-powered Harry Potter broomstick. This vibrating toy was popular with young girls — it could really make them "fly". No wonder it was swiftly recalled.

Enchanted Forest Chronicles: This is the standard transport method for witches. Book 3 goes further into depth on it, where it's explained that the standard way to ride a broom is to sit sideways, not astride, which would be far easier on the groin; Telemain the magician insists on riding astride despite having been told otherwise, which is one of the reasons he hates using them. Later in the same book, it's shown that broomsticks are made to fly by the application of a balm, which can be used on anything wooden to achieve the same effect (Morwen mentions having once flown forty leagues on a borrowed rake). This is used to make a much more seatable flying basket, although it has stability issues (partly because it's missing a bit). A flying mortar and pestle are also mentioned, but Telemain declines to use them, sticking with the laundry basket.

Discworld: The Lancre withes:
In Equal Rites, Granny Weatherwax once had to make do with her protégé's wizard staff. (Earlier in the book, Esk had disguised the staff by sticking bristles on it, which is one theory as to the origins of flying brooms in the first place.)
In Wyrd Sisters, it's said you need magic to keep a broomstick up, but other books suggest the magic is intrinsic to the broom, and even Rincewind can fly one; apparently they can store a limited amount of magical energy but require a witch or wizard to replenish it after a while, or several witches if the rider is carrying out a complicated spell at the same time, which is how Wyrd Sisters became the first work of fiction ever to depict mid-air refuelling with broomsticks. (It Makes Sense in Context.) In Lords and Ladies Nanny Ogg complains her grandkids keep joy-riding on hers.
Going Postal: Averted. Moist von Lipwig just paints an ordinary broomstick blue with stars, in order to fool the antagonist into thinking it was a real one. Played for Laughs when a wizard cautiously asks him if he's aware that the paint job won't get the broom airborne.
Granny's broomstick is described as the magical equivalent of a split window Morris Minor, and the dwarf craftsman who looks at it is amazed it flew at all. In later books, it's been fixed up, but still needs a running start. Though in one case of escaping danger, just outright jumping off a cliff qualifies as a "running start". It inexplicably maintains this quality even after replacing every component multiple times. In the end they get it working perfectly by replacing both at the same time.
In Thud!, the wizards speed up a carriage in part by nailing broomsticks to the bottom to make it hover.
Wintersmith: When Tiffany Aching starts riding a broomstick, it has two smaller brooms attached to the back to keep her stable. These get removed as she gets more comfortable.

Another Heinlein novella, Waldo, has antigravity vehicles that consist of a horizontal cylinder (containing the mechanisms) with power receptor antennae at the rear. When mounted in a transparent hull, they resemble flying broomsticks, and are referred to as such.

Soul Eater:
We first see Medusa riding a broom... that has an arrow/snakehead.
Jacqueline turns into a lantern which can propel itself by shooting fire and grow a pole for her partner Kim to hang onto, visually evoking this trope. Which hints at Kim really being a witch.
People with a certain type of soul can make a Weapon they're holding sprout wings to fly on them if they have the power of a Witch's soul. Maka uses Soul's scythe form to accomplish it.

The Harry Potter movies, of course, featuring everything from high-speed chases to sporting events mounted on the brooms. The actors have often noted that while the broomstick scenes look fun when you see them on screen, they were not fun to film. They were uncomfortable for the male actors (as Daniel Radcliffe puts it, "certain very, very important organs are crushed") and tedious for everyone since actual filming obviously consisted of spending hours sitting around in front of a blue screen or green screen.

One magic item in most editions of Dungeons & Dragons is the Broom of Flying, one of the basic forms of flight available to players along with the Magic Carpet, the Winged Boots, the Wings of Flying (a wing-like cape) and of course the Fly spell. Notably, near any object could also be enchanted for this purpose, and autonomous ass-kicking animated brooms are also available.

In Equal Rites, Granny Weatherwax once had to make do with her protégé's wizard staff. (Earlier in the book, Esk had disguised the staff by sticking bristles on it, which is one theory as to the origins of flying brooms in the first place.)

In The Witch Files, witches fly by using magic to levitate themselves. However, this is inherently unstable, as MJ discovers when she crashes to the ground. Jules discovers that holding a staff between you legs provides stability, and speculates that this is why witches were depicted riding broomsticks. The entire broom is not necessary, and at the end of the film, MJ and Claire chase after Jules riding a mop handle that MJ took the mop head off.

In Wyrd Sisters, it's said you need magic to keep a broomstick up, but other books suggest the magic is intrinsic to the broom, and even Rincewind can fly one; apparently they can store a limited amount of magical energy but require a witch or wizard to replenish it after a while, or several witches if the rider is carrying out a complicated spell at the same time, which is how Wyrd Sisters became the first work of fiction ever to depict mid-air refuelling with broomsticks. (It Makes Sense in Context.) In Lords and Ladies Nanny Ogg complains her grandkids keep joy-riding on hers.

Mahou Sensei Negima!:
Several minor magical characters have brooms, and Negi uses a staff that's functionally the same. He later switches to Sky Surfing on it, and by the end of the series he can fly unaided.
Yue's artifact includes a flying broom, and Ariadne Academy has classes of broom-riding.

In the Dusk subseries of the Atelier games, Wilbell Voll-Ersleid is a Cute Witch who flies around on a broom. In Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea, Shallote hears the Call of the Wild Blue Yonder after being rescued by Wilbell, becoming her protege in an attempt at learning how to fly on a broom. Sadly, broomstick flight is a form of magic, and Shallotte does not possess the gift of magic.

Broom flying is considered such an elementary skill that nobody even considers the possibility that main character Akko can't do it. It becomes a running gag.

Somehow subverted in Narutaru with Jun Ezumi, a girl who rides a flying broom that really is a "dragon", one of the Mons equivalent of the series. The protagonist Shiina even mistakes her for a witch, but Jun says she choose that specific form for her dragon (aptly if not creatively named "Broom") just for fun.

In Gakuen Babysitters, Kirin tries to invoke this trope since she believes she can become a witch and fly on a broom if she tries hard enough (due to being just a toddler who still can't distinguish fiction from reality). However, this isn't a fantasy series, so Kirin learns the hard way that this trope doesn't apply to a realistic setting when she jumps off a high ledge and Ryuuichi has to catch her before she hits the ground.

A weapon type in Dungeon Fighter Online covering practical-looking brooms and sleeker "paintbrush" designs, intended for the female mage subclass Witch. While airtime is quite limited in play, it allows practical air-to-air melee and air-to-ground bombardment as well as extending some nasty launcher chains. Oddy, advanced broomstick skills tend to involve buzzsaw-type spinning. The Creator class shares the Broomstick Control skill and preferred weapon type despite being unable to execute the keyboard commands which would allow riding it, relegating it to a Stat Stick, and despite lore-wise having more effective transportation methods (space/time/planar gate control). Giving Creators the skill (which still implies broomsticks are flyable when you're not playing) isn't really arbitrary, as the weapon type provides a movement speed increase which helps the Creator stay out of enemy lines of attack.

Flyff has them, although they're not limited to only the magical character classes. Whether a player chooses to ride a broom or a board is largely a matter of taste. To go into more detail, there are three ways you can fly: sitting on something and riding it like a broom, standing on something, or with wings. "Broom" items are generally stick-shaped, although there are a few exceptions (like a wooden rocking horse); a recent "broom" is actually a guitar.

Makoto in Flying Witch complains that "Flying for a long time really hurts my butt and groin." Her senior-witch sister Akane laughs and points out that "A lot of people think they're riding the brooms," but "The secret is you don't ride the broom. You're actually supposed to levitate yourself too." That explains how witches can ride a broomstick without agony, or having to ride sidesaddle.

Dorothy of MÄR rides a broom, preferring it even over the carpet the other characters ride. It doubles as her standard weapon. The broom is about her only trait that most would consider telling for her classification of "witch". In MAR Heaven, it's just the name of a person from a restrictive country. None of the other characters from the same place are seen with brooms.

The fourth installment of Fantaghirò played with this one hard: When Xellesia and the Black Queen realize that the latter can't transform into anything that flies, they seek an alternate means (including carpets, rejected because they only work well in Arabian Nights Land) and eventually settle on the brooms, despite the Black Queen complaining that they will look ridiculous.

A Halloween episode of Charmed reveals Phoebe's dislike for the "cackling hags on broomsticks cliché", until time traveling shenanigans reveal that she created the cliché, much to her amusement.

In Quidditch Through the Ages, it is said that brooms come with a cushioning charm on them, so Harry Potter has A Wizard Did It Handwave. Quidditch Through the Ages also lampshades how these are probably the magical community's worst-kept secret, stating that "no Muggle drawing of a wizard or witch is complete without one."

Key & Peele has the sketch "Inner-City Wizard School", which features the inner city equivalent of Hogwarts, Vincent Clortho Public School for Wizards. Among the various deficiencies the school faces, the Quiddich team is forced to use mops and Swiffers instead of regulation brooms.

In Servamp, Mahiru invokes this. His lead happens to be a broom, and his servamp's animal form is a black cat. It didn't take long for him to connect the dots.

In Season 8 of Happy Heroes, several dark wizards are seen flying through the air on broomsticks. Huo Haha is also shown using his toilet plunger Magic Wand in the same one would use a flying broomstick on several occasions.
