Every Thursday is considered a very special day for two wheeled motorists here in the city of Merida.

All sorts of motorcycles, styles ranging from Cargo to full out SuperSport crotch-rockets participate in the midnight roll-out that takes place in several different routes around Merida, with Progreso Highway being the most common.

More than 30 members show up to the reunion locations spread all throughout Mérida.

Mérida Bad Boys Biker Club

“Bad Boys” are one of the biker groups in Merida that do not discriminate riders for the horsepower in their engines, all riders are invited to join the weekly commute, with the required lawful requirements, (Helmet, obviously), but it is also recommended to be fully equipped with special pants and jacket; and to be protected with knee, elbow, and even a spinal pad due to the amount of accidents that occur in the city and its surrounding areas.


 

 “We believe riders safety is first and foremost.” – Mérida Bad Boys Biker Club


What’s the purpose of this midnight event? Collective Riding.

Motorists who have ridden a motorcycle before know the adrenaline feeling, the wind rush, the excitement that partakes riding a motorcycle, but what better than being able to enjoy your ride, along with a community of people that share the same passion and joy towards the sport.

“Going for a ride along Prolongación over to Paseo de Montejo is so much fun, you really get to appreciate the beauty of the scenery as you pass by the monuments and early XX century buildings, while feeling the wind and hearing the engine roar at the same time”, stated a member of Bad Boys Biker Club.

Merida is a beautiful city for bikers, and although you might find some road bumps and a considerable amount of potholes scattered throughout its streets, there isn’t too much to it other than drive around them and enjoy the ride along with other drivers and motorists, always under lawful requirements.

And we can never be insistant enough on how important it is to drive safely, not only here in Mérida, but anywhere else.

Also, Bad Boys Biker Club has a mission, “reaching out to those in need and having a great time while we do it, is what it’s all about,” exclaimed Ronaldo, one of the regulars to this roll-outs.

The moto club organizes fund raisers among its members and finds a way to give it back to them in full.
