In an act of respect shown to the diligence of Delhi Police, a huge conglomeration of bikers from more than 15 Biking Clubs in Delhi gathered yesterday, 24th August 2014, in and around Jantar Mantar for a rally. Close to 500 bikers made their presence felt, with machines ranging from humble 100 cc commuters to 1000 cc super-bikes and above. The whole rally was initiated by Bikers for Good, a Motorcycle Community engaged in riding merely for social causes.
The idea behind the whole ride was to send out a message of appreciation and respect for the Delhi Police. Commenting on the idea behind the ride, Mohit Ahuja, Founder of Bikers for Good said, “The public is there to protest and criticize the police when they fail to do something. We planned this ride to thank them for taking care of the city, through thick and thin.”
Apart from that, the bikers had amassed to shell out a message of responsibility towards safer roads. The admin of Bikers for Good, Jeet Kandhari said, “Biking today is growing. Motorcycle Clubs have members who are students, doctors, CEOs and even higher. Doing something like this will only help us create better terms between bikers and the police.”
Also, in what can be called as a warm gesture signifying gratitude, bikers were also seen hugging Delhi Police personnel and carrying placards that screamed FREE HUGS FOR DELHI POLICE. A huge banner with the logos of the participating clubs was put up, where bikers wrote their messages for the Delhi Police. This banner was later presented to Mr. Ajay Kumar Singh, S.H.O., Parliament Street, Delhi.
Bikers for Good are the only community in India to ride solely for Social Causes and promote safety amongst bikers. In less than 3 years of its existence, Bikers for Good has grown to be a 5000 member community across India, helping out more than 3 Lakh people.
