To celebrate the spirit of independence, Goan riding enthusiasts took to the roads with great fervour. The Freedom Ride 2018 jointly organised by the Wildtrek Adventures Goa, A to Z events and Snell Mascarenhas. The ride in its tenth year invited popular Indian actors Shreyas Talpade and Manoj Joshi who flagged off the ride at Patto Panaji.
The riders, united to pay homage to the motherland, moved from the flag-off point at 11 a.m. to Ribander where they were joined by other to travel through the three talukas of Tiswadi, Bardez and Pernem. The 160 kilometres ride culminated in the early evening at the Royal Pearl in Vagator. In total there were around 120 riders who participated.
