What we're about

The feeling of owning a mean machine and riding it with the thumping sound of our bike’s engine and exhaust blaring through the streets is just priceless, to have such experience bike clubs are the only remedy. Here’s the best choice Backpacking And Riding Squad (BARS). BARS is a non-profit social community of bikers and Backpackers. We are all inclusive Happy People. Join us to attend regular events, get connected to likeminded people.
Backpacking And Riding Squad (BARS) is a Motorbikers with Backpackers club in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. Founded by the Palla Vijaya Bhaskar Reddy, he was backpacker covered most of the Europe with a passion of travelling and also covered many parts of South India With his favorite Dug Dug Machine with a passion of riding. The Passion of backpacking and riding made him to startup BARS with the help of two Other Friends Ravichandra and Koutilya Tej. We are a biking and Backpackers community pioneered by a dedicated BARS Admin Team and BARS Crew. We are a non-profit community driven entity who have launched our operations in July 2018, in Hyderabad.
Motorbikes have always been associated with tough terrain and long distance riding. However, it was time to break the barrier to give all such unconventional thoughts a new dimension. True bikers feel the need to ride more often than others, to experience different places and interact with different people. The brotherhood of bikers is where the true feeling of travel is shared, Anxieties & difficulties; adventures and flat tyres are better understood. The unique thing here is that everyone is treated with respect, and admins are often the most-teased and well-respected members on and off rides. Here, the laughter is as loud as the engine notes of their wonderfully-maintained bikes. Every BARSian is a part of an inner-circle of the closest, funniest and naughtiest friends you will come across in your life. This is a creed of bikers that will instantly excite, rejuvenate and revitalize you.
Seventeenth-century Italian adventurer Giovanni Francesco Gemelli Careri has been suggested as one of the world's first backpackers. Backpacking may include wilderness adventures, local travel and travel to nearby countries while working from the country in which they are based. The definition of a backpacker has evolved as travelers from different cultures and regions participate in the trend. A 2007 paper says "backpackers constituted a heterogeneous group with respect to the diversity of rationales and meanings attached to their travel experiences. They also displayed a common commitment to a non-institutionalised form of travel, which was central to their self-identification as backpackers.
We have day ride, forest rides, night rides, workshops, awareness sessions, cause rides and many more where all of them are driven by the community members itself taking initiatives as and when required.
