Berets MC, the Dubai based bike club, will be running its annual Autism Awareness Ride on March 15th, to help raise awareness for autism. This will be the fifth year the club has run the popular ride, which culminates with a fun-filled event at Dubai Investment Park.
The event will kick off with a ride attended by bikers from bike clubs all around the UAE. The ride will start at 10am at the Bikers House Restaurant in Business Bay, with the ride ending at around 11am in Dubai Investment Park. Lead by trained assigned marshals, the ride is open for anyone with a bike license and who has their own motorcycle.
This organisers invite children and teachers from local autism schools, all bike riders and the general public to come down to support the event, have a fun day filled with activities, and meet the biker community of the UAE. Entry is free of charge.
Kids activities include a play area, games and a live show by the UAE’s award-winning magician Magic Phil and his crew. For bike fans, there will be bike builders and custom bike displays, as well as bike competitions for the best modified bike, best chopper, best paint, and best softail. There will also be a range of food outlets on offer.
Over the past five years, the Berets MC have worked closely with local autism schools, such as the Autism Trust Foundation, Skills for Kids, Widad Education and Pure Child Health with bikers and several cause supporters and exhibitors to create a fun event to bridge the gap of understanding between autism and the public.
