Mavericks make a difference to the SPCA animals in the Bay
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.
