Mav­er­icks make a dif­fer­ence to the SPCA an­i­mals in the Bay

Zululand Observer - Monday - - EASTERN WATCH -

OFF-road rid­ing, com­pris­ing en­duro and mo­tocross, has be­come one of the fastest de­vel­op­ing sports, and a small group of bike en­thu­si­asts in Brack­en­ham have teamed up to share their pas­sion.

The Richards Bay Mav­er­icks was es­tab­lished ear­lier this year and has grown significantly, with about 25 lo­cal mem­bers who have been ac­tive with many out­door ad­ven­tures and adren­a­line fun.

This pas­sion has quickly be­come the mem­bers’ favourite re­lease for a va­ri­ety of rea­sons, from men­tal to phys­i­cal ben­e­fits as well as shar­ing their vast knowl­edge and ex­per­tise with each other.

The group is open to all who wish to join in on rides and ex­pe­ri­ence some­thing out of the or­di­nary.

Un­for­tu­nately bik­ers in gen­eral are stereo­typed as loud, noisy and reck­less, but the club has made it their mis­sion to turn this gen­er­al­i­sa­tion around by car­ry­ing out com­mu­nity work on a monthly ba­sis and sup­port­ing lo­cal char­ity or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Be­ing a mem­ber of the club adds both phys­i­cal and fi­nan­cial re­sources, which make a huge dif­fer­ence.

Re­cently the club held an an­i­mal food drive to sup­port the Richards Bay SPCA, and it was a huge suc­cess, with many con­tri­bu­tions re­ceived from the mem­bers, com­mu­nity and busi­nesses.

Any­one look­ing to join in on the rides and share ca­ma­raderie, while also lend­ing a help­ing hand to oth­ers, can con­tact Sun­jen Pil­lay on 063 4017699.
