BikeStormz come to #StanceCoventGarden
Since 2015, co-founders Mac Ferrari and Jake 100 have brought together thousands of people from across the country to protest against violent crime. Operating under the mantra ‘knives down, bikes up’, BikeStormz provides an alternative to violent crime, while encouraging positivity and peace amongst young people.
On June 2017 Bikestormz 5 was created and the movement reached a major milestone as we were able to secure an authorised venue to bring the ride out to a climax. Throughout the years the organisers of BikeStormz have successfully managed eight ride outs and the movement has rapidly grown in numbers since that time. The organisers are committed to the safety and security of all those who attend the ride outs and as such work very closely with the local council in Southwark and other neighbouring boroughs as well as the Metropolitan Police and the London Ambulance service.
Running from 9-15th August, #StanceCoventGarden presents ‘Riders’, an exhibition showcasing the #BikeStormz movement.
The ‘Riders’ exhibition reveals the vibrant community behind BikeStormz, documenting the recent bi-annual ride out across Central London, where Riders of all ages are encouraged to ‘put down the knives’ and wheelie amongst the BikeStormz community.
