The organisers of the Tough Tourers Awards on Thursday said that Lagos City would witness the largest gathering of Nigerian Adventure Riders ever, adding that the residents were looking forward to the event with great excitement.

The Media Coordinator of the event, Temitope Sanni, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the event would have in attendance riders from across the country.

NAN reports that Tough Tourers is a platform which encourages and promotes motorcycle touring and long distance riding in Nigeria and beyond her borders through a variety of carefully structured tours.

The platform also celebrates riders who are able to successfully complete its tours, as they record new milestones in the process.

Sanni said that the tour with the theme, “Tough Tourers Awards and Finishers Banquet – A Celebration of Nigeria’s Toughest Riders” would take off from Akwa-Ibom through some notable places along the route to the finishing point in Lagos.

“The #ToughTourersAwards is the climax of the second edition of the Tough Tour across Nigeria, tagged #TT2019 Epic Adventure Renewed.

“The tour is a five-day motorcycle ride across Nigeria, with the take-off point at Uyo, Akwa-Ibom and end destination in Lagos. Tourers will ride across over fifteen towns (with only five stop points racking up over 2500km in five days).

“The Tour will test the endurance and resilience of a Rider and his/her machine,” she said.

Sanni said there would be other side attractions to the event which include entertainment and banquet.

“With an exciting line-up of comedy, music and dance, the Banquet is set to hold at the prestigious Sheraton Hotels and Towers, Ikeja on Saturday, March 23, 2019. Red carpet starts at 10 am. (NAN)
