Bikers in Kolkata are known for their mean machines, speed, style and swag. This time they will be getting together for an event which will show their heart!
From the burly Harley Davidson Riders to the speedy super-bikers, all major bikers and bike groups will get together for a heart warming blanket ride where they would be distributing blankets to the homeless and those ill-equipped in the city to battle the cold.
Winters have set in and soon the nip in the air would become biting cold in the nights. Several hundreds and even thousands fall severely ill and some incidents also turn fatal as we have seen in the previous years. This time the bikers will join hands to help out and make a difference by keeping the city warm. Most affected in terms of illnesses in the cold are children and the aged, who we will be specially attending to.
The ride will start at 6am on Sunday, the 7th of December’2014 and will ride through a pre-selected area for the distribution to the right people and those to need it most.
The blankets will be available at the start point at a negotiated price of Rs.125/- from the manufacturers directly. Riders are also open to get their own blankets and join the ride.
Refreshments will be provided to all the riders on assembly. We expect 100+ riders with their families.
