BENGALURU: Over 3,000 bikers participated in the bike rally to enter the Asia Book of Record and India Book of Record 2019 in the category of mass attempts in creating safety awareness of lifts and escalators.
The event was organised by Karnataka Elevator Manufacturers Association. It also supported the upcoming World Yoga Day. This was the first time that such an event has been organised in Karnataka.

The bikers, comprising both men and women, rode their bikes from Sophia School to Nagarbhavi Circle.
Subhadeb Sengupta, a rider at the event, said, “I got to know about the event from a few biker groups I am part of. Safety is the first priority so I decided to participate.”

Some safety guidelines that the event wanted to bring out were to buy elevators from licensed companies, not to keep inflammable items in the machine room, not to overload and exceed elevator capacity.
