OVER 200 motorcycle bikers from Nigeria and the West African sub-region will storm Abakaliki, the capital city of Ebonyi State for their annual convention which will commence from 28th September through 1st October .

National President of Ace Spades Bikers Association, Bikers in Nigeria (BIN), Joann Otaru, made this disclosure to journalists on Thursday, during a press briefing in Abakaliki.

Mrs Otaru revealed that the convention, tagged “Closer to Nature–Games Festival” (GAMESFEST), is aimed at promoting team bonding activities through various intense survival games, educating and fun filled.

According to her, the BIN would ride their motorbikes from their respective locations to Ebonyi for the event, adding that the association would conduct free cervical and breast cancer screening for the public and explore the rich-cultural heritage of Ebonyians.

The national president noted that the convention has been a regular feature in the country since it started in Calabar, Cross River State in 2008 and has been further held in different states such as Benue, Rivers, Oyo, Akwa Ibom, Plateau, Ekiti, Delta, Lagos and Imo states. She also noted that there are riding schools all over the country such as in Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Ibadan among others and that their members have the needed training and licence to operate super-bikes.

“The association is an umbrella body for various motorcycle clubs in Nigeria and was set up to promote unity, discipline and responsibility amongst members.

“We debunk the notion that biking is a dangerous sport but however, encouraged individuals to enroll in riding schools to learn about inherent risks associated with biking and ways to avoid them before joining our association.

“The same processes obtained in acquiring bikes are the same with cars and the costs are relative to the type of bike that one seeks to acquire which makes anyone who can afford a car to equally afford a bike”, she said.
