The Bikers Rally was held at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium as part of the mega event welcoming Sadhguru in Delhi on June 5 which was also World Environment Day!

The bikers were welcomed at the Stadium by the team of #SaveSoil Volunteers and cheered by over 15,000 people who participated in the event.

As a prelude to the #SaveSoil awareness campaign, Asteride organized one of the largest Bikers Rally and Event in Gurugram at Yansh Adventure Zone on May 28, 2022.

Asteride has pledged to the cause and taking the #SaveSoil movement across India by an initiative called "Karmic Rides", which empowers bike riding communities to do good and give back to society and the environment as a collective force." he added. With over 600 riding groups, Asteride is already the largest Connected Community Platform for Bikers in India.
