More than 160 motorcyclists from diverse backgrounds and nationalities in the UAE will ride together to celebrate Eid at the upcoming Eid brotherhood ride. This event is being organized by Vicky M., who has been living in UAE for more than 25 years, as a tribute to the values of tolerance and respect that are promoted by the UAE, a nation that embodies diversity and inclusivity.
“The UAE is a wonderful place for bikers. It has some of the best and safest roads in the region. We have riders from over 30 nationalities regularly riding with us. The Eid brotherhood ride is a great opportunity for bikers to come together, celebrate Eid and contribute towards a good cause,” said Vicky M. who has organised large motorcycle rides earlier, including a 1610 Km endurance ride with 91 participants in March 2019, which still maintains its position as the largest motorcycle Endurance ride in the Middle East.
“The Eid brotherhood ride invites motorcyclists of all types, riding together in different groups, each reflecting the unique culture and traditions of its members. It promises an exhilarating day bringing solidarity of riders from diverse backgrounds and nationalities, together to celebrate and embrace the spirit of Ramadan,” said Anand Rodrigues, Assistant Director of HOG Dubai.
Mirza, Founder of PRG UAE, shares his thoughts about the ride, “As every year, this year again we are ending the holy month and getting into the long weekend with Eid-al-Fitr celebrations. We are so honoured to say that we are celebrating Eid with our biker family which is an absolute joy. It’s an honor to tell you that we have arranged countless iftar meals and placed water coolers in different locations where it’s hard to get chilled water and soon more are on their way. Being a biker, it’s always the greatest joy to share happiness and success with others.”
Katrina Corcoran, President of the Women’s International Motorcycle Association (WIMA) UAE, commented, “I am from the USA and I have been living in the UAE for the last 12 years. It is important for me to show my support for the local riding community and the many wonderful initiatives put forth. It will be an honor and pleasure to make this upcoming Eid brotherhood ride alongside my brothers and sisters from so many different clubs as well as solo riders. To stand united with my fellow riders feels powerful and to ride united displays our power and the bond we share for all to see.”
