Once upon a time, the words “bikers” frightened people, because before their eyes appeared a picture of brutal bandits who drive their motorcycles in leather jackets on the streets and sow chaos and disorder in their path. Although, in fact, bikers are a whole subculture of motorcycle enthusiasts, the central element of which is motorcycle rallies. This is the name of meetings of bikers, during which they travel around the country and visit certain locations, giving people an unforgettable spectacle and increasingly encouraging like-minded people.
