More than 10,000 motorcycle enthusiasts are expected to roll into Pattaya Feb. 15-16 for the annual Burapa Bike Week at Silverlake Vineyard.
The event features a “ride for peace” through the streets of Jomtien Beach and Pattaya. The “Riders for Peace” project also aims to raise awareness about the importance of wearing helmets and promoting peace, unity and friendship among Thai and foreign bikers.
Prasan Nikaji, president of Big Bike Burapa, once again expects a big turnout for this year’s Burapa Bike Week at Silverlake Vineyard next month.
Bike Week festivities will continue with a parade of cars, an extreme-sports competition, KR Stunt Thai Championship, a Miss Chopper pageant, booths selling motorcycle and car accessories, and a paramotorcycle exhibition. Bands from Thailand and Scandinavia are slated to entertain festival goers.
Prasan Nikaji, president of Big Bike Burapa, said he has received word that bike groups on three continents will attend. There will be bike groups, classic cars clubs, youth groups and tattoo artists attending as well.
