India cricket captain and motorsport enthusiast Mahendra Singh Dhoni has launched the first edition of Southeast Asia’s largest bike extravaganza, the Bike Festival of India (BFI), along with other partners.
BFI will be a unique platform for biking enthusiasts to come together, to be a part of this first-of-its-kind biking adventure in India.
While adventure is an integral part of BFI, the most unique feature is that it accentuates the importance of safe biking.
The Festival, launched here Friday night, will bring together over 120 biking communities from across the nation to participate in a series of events as part of the festival whose finale will be held in October this year at the the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) in Greater Noida.
Dhoni, who himself is a bike enthusiast, said he was excited to be a part of the initiative.
“Biking for me is a passion, which is why I am excited to be part of this initiative that not only is an adventure in its form but also promotes safe biking. BFI will be an annual platform for the biking community to meet, interact and share adventures together,” said Dhoni.
“Meeting with the presidents of various biking communities from all over India has been enlightening and I look forward to joining them sometime on the track,” he added.
