Come 15th August 2019, India will proudly celebrate its 73rd Independence Day. Fellow motorcyclists will understand that we, bikers, have a different way of expressing our emotions; we ride. And it’s not just these important dates in the calendar that motorcycle rides are conducted, they happen throughout the year and for different causes – ride for awareness, ride for raising funds, or just a breakfast ride.
This year, on the occasion of India’s 73rd Independence Day, Ducati India will conduct the ‘Big Indian Scramble’, an Independence Day Ride. The purpose of this ride is to raise funds for the Lotus Petal Foundation, an NGO that works towards the betterment of underprivileged children in the country. The Foundation provides education, healthcare and meals to the urban poor.
The Ride will commence at 7 in the morning from the Ducati dealerships in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Kochi, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, and Ahmedabad. Ducati owners, customers, and Ducati India staff will participate in the Independence Day ride.
Speaking about the initiative, Sergi Canovas, MD of Ducati India, said, “We at Ducati India, along with our fellow Ducatisti, always strive to stand for causes that are aimed towards the development and betterment of the society and the nation. The Big India Scramble ride is the second event in the series that brings motorcycle enthusiasts together to contribute towards the education of underprivileged children in India.”
“Ducati India believes in the right to education and through this ride, we wish to create awareness around the need for quality education for all. It will be a proud moment for Ducati India to see participation from Ducatisti across the country carrying the spirits of Independence and nationalism, spreading the message of education.”
