Bikers4Orcas


Bikers4Orcas (B4O) started in Holland in 2013. B4O is an international group of motorcyclists that cherish the freedom to be able to travel anywhere, at any time.  Ask any biker what he loves most about riding a motorcycle, and you often get a single-word answer: freedom. Bikers cherish the ability to travel anywhere, at any time, over vast distances and with extraordinary agility. Sometimes they ride with great purpose; other times they do it for sheer joy. Bikers, it turns out, are a lot like killer whales. Watching orcas makes you realize that us bikers are not really that different. We enjoy our freedom and understand others enjoy this too. In a lot of countries, bikers greet each other. It’s a social way of showing we understand what the other is experiencing. A breeze of wind on your skin, a wide world in front of you, and the ability to go wherever you want. Bikers also experience this in a group, a club or a gathering, like a pack of wolves, or a pod of orcas…  Bikers 4 Orcas,  ride to heighten awareness of the plight of orcas in captivity who are unable to travel anywhere, at any time.   In 2014, the Ultimate Ride for Freedom took place around the world for the first time.  This year, on June 28th, the ride will take place in 11 different countries from South Africa to Switzerland, from Puerto Rico to San Juan Island, Washington, USA.

B4O San Juan Island will participate in this worldwide with a full day event that takes you around this scenic island and ends at Lime Kiln Point Sate Park, the best place in the world to view wild orcas in their home from land. Net proceeds and donations from the event will go to Orca Network’s “Free Lolita Campaign” (see more on the Free Lolita page).  Orca Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the whales of the Pacific Northwest, and the importance of providing them healthy and safe habitats.
