Four Royal Enfield riders to do a B'lore-Paris road trip

Four mad Royal Enfield lovers are going to ride from Bangalore to Paris on their motorbikes to celebrate the Joy of Giving cause through Baale Mane.

The Joy of Giving Week (JGW) is India's
largest "festival of giving." Launched in 2009, the festival is celebrated every year in the first week of October when Gandhi Jayanti comes around, and brings together Indians from all walks of life, to celebrate "giving". From auto drivers to CEOs, school children to celebrities, homemakers to opinion leaders, millions of people give their time, money, resources or skills back to society, by creating or participating in events of their choice. 

In Bangalore, a Royal Enfield Ride has been organized where three French bikers – Thibault Chavanat, Stanislas Miquel, Samuel Boredenave and one Indian biker – Krunal Varma will ride on their bullets from Bangalore to Paris to raise awareness and fundraising for NGO Baale Mane.

The ride will be flagged off from Baale Mane, Gopalapura on July 26 and will end close to the first week of October. The ride will clock 15,000 km and go across 10 borders. During the 60 day trip the riders will travel through Kazakhstan, Azerbaidjan, Georgia, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovaquia, Czech Rep, Germany and France.

Baale Mane is a loving home for 60 girls who do not have parents able to care for them. Baale Mane aims for every girl to be able to lead a self sustaining lifestyle. Founded in 2001 by Paraspara Trust, an NGO dedicated to the eradication of the child labour system, it provides shelter and a home for girl children.
