Speaking to the gathering before flagging off  the rally Police commissioner of Mangaluru M Chandra Sekar said,  "Freedom of women is vital, side by side need to create awareness on safety and the importance of traffic rules and regulations. Youngsters who go to college on bikes without helmets are foolish to consider them selves heroes and brave with a view to show off that helmets are unnecessary. Even a minor accident can cripple for life, we see  how life can be lost in a fraction of a second. College students please  wear helmets, keep speed limits and be safe."

Preethi Uchila said that this rally was to show that  that men and women must are equal partners here should not be any  complexes for both. A cross section of women from all walks of life participated in this unique bike rally, their independence while breaking traditional gender stereotypes, with an aim to spread awareness on equality and liberation while also emphasizing on road safety and other norms was the target.

Here,  women were riding all types of heavy bikes which are generally used  by men. The bike rally began at Forum Mall and ended at the same place after passing via Jyothi, Lower Bendore, Nanthoor, Bejai and PVS.

 Traffic ACP Uday Nayak, inspector Dinkar Shetty from Pandeshwar police station were also present along with a large number of  participating enthisiasts.

Its beautiful to see woman riding the bikes. The main thing before driving a vehicle is safety and follow the traffic rules.
