Over 20,000 bikers from across India will ride down to Goa to attend the 2017 edition of India Bike Week (IBW) that will be held on 24th and 25th of November.

The team at IBW 2017 has been developing the mod bike displays and biker build off competitions to showcase the greatest names in two wheeler design. The world’s fastest woman on two wheels, Leslie Porter will grace India Bike Week this year. India Bike Week will welcome over 280 biking clubs from all over India into the IBW family and cheering them into the festival with their bike colours and parades. A flat track for racing has been built and an enduro track for training them.

Legends of long distance, transnational bike trips will present at India Bike Week’s first Film Festival. A few other highlights of the event will include live music, food festivals, IBW strong man and women of biking competitions and the mega moto vlogger meet up.
Martin da Costa, CEO of 70 EMG, and Director of India Bike Week, said, “I’ve never been so excited by India Bike Week as I am this year. We’ve been working on it since last November, and we’ve thrown everything at it. It’s going to be just one enormous party and I can’t wait to ride down to it. Who would have thought 5 years ago that IBW would become so big, so important globally, and such a fantastic celebration of Indian biking and bikers. It’s a once in a lifetime festival this 5th year and I can’t wait for it to roll by.”
