Cox’s Bazar Riding Fiesta 2019 was one of the biggest events focused on the bikers the country has ever seen. YRC-Yamaha Riders Club was the main host of the event with support from ACI Motors Ltd, and bikers who joined the event will remember it for quite some time. Let’s take a quick recap into everything that happened in Cox’s Bazar Riding Fiesta 2019.
When registration opened some 750+ bikers attended the program while unofficially 550 bikes came into the event. While our team was riding on the road we noticed the enthusiastic bikers who were on the way to the program. Most of the bikers went from Dhaka & Chittagong but there were some who came from the North Bengal & even some bikers who came riding 500-600 km on a single day just to attend the event.

The first leg of Day 1 was happening not in Cox’s Bazar, but on the highways of Bangladesh. Bikers who registered from all around the country were riding towards the longest sea beach in the world – and they were welcomed twice in the road. To ensure full support for the riders, there was a service station at Comilla where bikers can service their bikes, tune anything that is out of adjustment, and take some rest.
The next service station was at Chittagong at Lohagora. Here, bikers were provided with snacks and their bikes were checked, as the next stop was Cox’s bazar.
Check-in at hotels in Cox’s Bazar started from 3 PM, and most of the bikers arrived before dinner. The first day of the event ended with the riders checking in, having dinner and chatting with each other.
