The second half of September, the month of October and November are considered as “low season” for the tourism industry in the state of Quintana Roo, so in an effort to help the families of Cozumel who depend on this activity, the Brotherhood Motorcycle Club organizes the fourth edition of the “Biker Fest”, an event that aims to gather more than 3,000 fans from Mexico and Central America, taking advantage of the fact that 70% of them travel accompanied.

“It will take place from October 12 to 14 at Parque Andrés Quintana Roo. The official opening party that will kick off the Fest will be held on Friday October 12 (the motorcyclists will start arriving on Thursday though), and on Saturday morning the traditional breakfast of cochinita pibil will take place with the participation of all cyclists”said Carlos Carrillo Castillo, president of the event.

After lunch, the bikers will mount their vehicles to tour the “Island of the Swallows”, as is the tradition of all who visit this destination of the Mexican Caribbean.

Afterwards, everyone will return to concentrate on the headquarters park to participate in an exhibition, which will be accompanied by several activities, such as the awarding of the noisiest and most attractive motorcycle.

“We will also have a clinic on “How to drive a motorcycle” with the PFP (Federal Preventive Police) on Saturday. But it is important to mention that the event is not only for motorcyclists, it is open for all locals, for the people of Cozumel, it is not necessary to have a motorcycle to participate” said the organizer.

A Harley Davidson stand will be open, two motorcycles will be raffled, and all participants will have to chance to win through the purchase of their kit, which consists of ticket, shirt, bandana, pin, patch and a 20% at a sponsor restaurant.

“Many people catalog bikers as rude or party animals, but this is totally incorrect. The fact that we wear a vest and have tattoos doesn’t make us “rebels without cause”, we just love motorcycles and we want to help others” Carrillo Castillo concluded.
