Though riding a bike is done by one person, with at most, another person riding pillion, bike riding is by no means, a solo activity.
If you own a bike, you will understand the importance of group riding. The fun of conversations along the way, competing with each other to get ahead, stopping for snack breaks, and the overall experience of sharing the thrill, is something that every biker would want with their friends.
And what better way to share your love for motorcycles, than to meet up with other riders at a biking festival! BforBiker would like to present you, top 5 list of Biking Festivals in India. It’s time to make some amazing biking memories!
