“We hope to have more visibility in Dominica by hosting more activities etc. and engaging in positive works. However, safety is always first. Therefore, whatever activities we plan, we will abide by the established COVID protocols,” Cuffy stated.

She also encourages all bike riders and their pillion riders to always wear safety gears and advised other road users to be on the lookout for bikers.

    Yay Kaya!! Use your position to influence other riders and encourage safe riding, especially the use of helmets, prudence when riding through traffic and speeding.

    Congratulations lady :-) You set að good example by wearing a helmet. In most countries it is illegal to ride a motorbike without a helmet and other protective gear.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 7 Thumb down 4

    please lead the way in demonstrating safe riding protocols for bikers all over the island.
    1. Teach them to wear proper head gear, foot gear, and body gear
    2. teach them to not drive recklessly (excessive speeding and wheeling on busy public roads)
    3. Teach them that although bikes can be used for enjoyment, but be mindful of others peace of mind. Thus stop revving the bike uselessly (especially for the scooters that go beng beng beng, its very annoying)

    That’s all the country needs, a motorcycle club and more bikes. Haven’t enough young guys lost their lives already? Dominica has no roads for motorbikes. Grow up!!

      dominica has no road for a lot of vehicles that are currently on the roads of dominica. so though you may be correct for saying that, dominica needs avenues for going forward and climbing the world ladder…. and this is one of them…. a bike club is not only for bikers to ride bikes…. its a club and they can do a lot more than just ride bike…. i.e. just being a club shows the youth of today that there is no need to sit on the side of the road all day… they can get involved in something that will help the community including themselves. i think it is quite a let down to make that statement “thats all the country needs, a motorcycle club and more bikes” ….. we all have a part to play and we cannot all fill the same seat, if everyone were a doctor then who would be our patients??

        ‘Dominica needs avenues for going forward and climbing the world ladder….’ And a Motorcycle Club is your answer?? Wow, this must come straight out of Skerrits Economic Stimulus Chest. Sometimes I do have to ask myself if I am in the right place. I mean with opinions like that we definitely are NOT a real country and Skerrit know this all along.
