- Each year, more and more bikers are coming to the festival, - says one of the organizers of the event. - Last year it was 2000 bikers, this year the figure has grown twice.

- On the way we bought Ukrainian costumes and arrived in Uman. We have already travelled on a bike all over Ukraine, - says Ekaterina from Odessa. – In Uman we came because of friendly and warm atmosphere of the festival.
