The roar of motorcycle engines crossed the island today [June 10] as a group of Harley Davidsons and other supersized motorcycles were joined by members of the Bermuda Longriders on a ride across the island.
The group is part of the ETA Motorcycle Cruising Club, which offers cruises all through the Caribbean for motorcycle enthusiasts, and have been visiting Bermuda for a number of years.
The group arrived in Bermuda aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas for a two day visit. Today saw the convoy of motorcycles head to the east end after a visit to Gibbs Hill Lighthouse. Two visitors on a regular Bermuda rental bike joined the convoy, and were all smiles as they motored along.
After meeting dignitaries in the Town Square, the group headed to Gombeys Restaurant at Clearwater Beach for a prepared lunch and to spend time socializing. At approximately 3.45pm, the group strapped on their helmets for the ride back to the ship in Dockyard.
On Tuesday, the bikes will take off once again and head to City Hall in Hamilton, where they are due to meet officials from the corporation then spend a few hours shopping in the city. The bikes will be parked at City Hall for those interested in having a closer look and are expected to arrive between 10.00am and 11.00am.
