The ‘Ride to IBW’ is only the start to an adventurous journey that starts with riding to Goa and converges into a slew of events that aren’t for the faint-hearted and entice the free spirit of brave heart riders.
Races & Rides:
IBW 2022 will have five tracks and races for all moto enthusiasts – whether you are a Moto Cross fan or a Big ADV rider, there is a track for every rider and motorcycle. Our tyre partner CEAT is co-hosting our Hill Climb, where the fastest one up a hill wins the race and the Mud Rush – a fun dash across loose sand and a few crazy twists and twirls. At the IBW Flat Track, the bikers ride, slide and race, using their skill of balancing man and machine around an oval dirt track. The Adventure Flow Track is an obstacle course designed for ADV bikes while the Dirt Dash is the place to test one’s mastery over dirt and slush. All winners will get trophies, certificates, cash prizes and exciting motoring accessories. For those who want to learn a few skills from the absolute masters of dirt, there is a wide variety of track sessions to sign up for. Vishakh from BAR Academy will conduct 1 hour Enduro sessions to master the gnarly hill trail. Nelly from ProDirt Adventure, Motofarm & FMAE Motopark will coach people on 3 other tracks – Adventure Track, Flow track and the Dirt Dash for Moto Cross and dirt enthusiasts. These track are expected to give the curious a glimpse into the wild world of dirt riding and explore the limits for themselves and their own machines. The registration for the races and sessions is live now on register.indiabikeweek.in.
The on-going IBW Chai Pakoda Rides presented by PETRONAS Sprinta is a platform to ride, connect and celebrate with the biking community around the country. It is hosted on Sunday mornings across 30 cities pan India, with the idea of meeting like-minded people over a short breakfast ride and hopefully forge new friendships within the motorcycling community. The IBW team hopes these rides will encourage the community to get on their bikes for the annual Great Migration to Goa and make full use of the RIDE TO IBW support system in partnership with KoGo, going live on Nov 20. The biggest motorcycle brands such as KTM, BMW Motorrad, Harley-Davidson, etc have confirmed their participation as well.
People and institutions who have built the subculture of motorcycling over the last 2 decades, who hold the legacy of the Indian moto scene are the Moto League 2022. These motorcycling stalwarts will host conversations with biker cafes, the original motorcycling clubs and adventure bike trip organisers. The Ladakh Tent will be a cosy corner featuring the Rodcast Tent, Beer Garden, Jameson Black Barrel Bar, a viny collection, singer-songwriters, and Open Mic sessions from the community.
For the first time, Shirshendu Banerjee (Shandy), India’s only International Award Winning podcaster on motorcycling – The Biker Radio Rodcast – will record live at IBW 2022. Shandy will interview iconic riders, travellers and builders at the Rodcast Tent. It will be an opportunity for the biker community to see Shandy Live while he creates his famous Podcasts.
The festival is calling the community to reach out and tell their own uniquely individual stories at IBW. Jameson Connect at Howling Dog Bar will feature a Motography Show by riders followed by a Mod Bike Show, a platform to display and talk about custom-built machines. Personalities like Murtaza Junaid, Yogi Chabaria, Marco Rosetto Founder Mini GP India, Shardul Sharma India’s first participant to the Red Bull Romaniacs and others will come together and share their stories, experiences & passion for riding at various sessions.
