OUR MISSION TO REVIVE THE MOTORCYCLE INDUSTRY by creating a more inclusive culture
We create positive and inclusive experiences for local communities by providing education on motorcycle safety, industry, and culture. Through our knowledge and passion, we strive to bring people of all ages, races, and genders together to get involved with the heritage of motorcycles and their future.
Not your average block party
what we do
We provide educational resources, riding gear such as helmets, gloves and eyewear, simulated riding experiences and riding course practice materials. BikerFest provides assistance to novice riders, through mentoring of good sportsmanship and connecting them with other organizations. We also work directly with motorcycle academies to offer opportunities for low income residents to learn in a safe environment. BikerFest also creates opportunities for low income residents to gain employment in the motorcycle industry through our partnerships with local businesses and organizations. It is our goal to:
Create more job/career opportunities for the community to get involved in the growing motorcycle industry from professional track riding, repair/building bikes, to sales and service.
Create awareness on the importance of motorcycle safety to build sense of harmony on the city streets between drivers and riders.
Provide FREE and/or inexpensive resources such as safety gear such as helmets, gloves and eye protection, motorcycle simulated riding experience and riding instruction to new riders and those who are interested in learning to ride who do not have the funds or resources.
