Mumbai's first ever bike week
The Cruise India Tour Bike Week is right in the middle of the city and helps bike lovers celebrate style, speed and design and not-to-miss stunt acts
The mean machine has found its way on the city’s festive calendar as motorbikes and bike lovers knock off one whole week, solely dedicated to The Cruise India Tour Bike Week. The ongoing seven-day fiesta promises to have a good cause at heart as it flags off an 8,000 km cross country rally to support the cause of women. The rally itself will have 600 women riders busting myths, clichés and more.
