An NCR bikers’ group rode from Gurgaon to Camp Wild Dhauj in Faridabad on Sunday to promote the Happening Haryana investors’ meet and tourism in the state.

Around 110 riders, who are members of a social media group, Royal Enfield Delhi (RED), gathered near the defunct Sirhaul toll at the Delhi-Gurgaon border for the 60-km ride. The objective of the ride was to popularise the tourist potential of Camp Wild Dhauj.

The bikers embarked on their journey around 7.30am. The group, including men and women, wore all safety gear. As there were mild showers on Saturday night and Monday morning, the bikers were given strict instructions about the speed limit and road discipline before commencing the journey.

“We have come together to promote the investors’ summit that will be held on Monday and Tuesday. We are also riding to promote state tourism as there are several locations in Haryana that are not too popular,” Rohit Waadhwa, a member of the RED group, said.

The riders will also contribute `10,000 to the state tourism department.

The group took shape two years ago on Facebook. It has 4,929 members, of which 300 are active. The riders take long and short trips regularly and have already covered half the country on their two-wheelers.

“We love to ride bikes and travel to distant places but we try to associate a cause to these trips. Earlier, we rode to pay condolences to the martyrs of the Pathankot attack,” Ishan Pahwa, co-founder of RED, said.
