Ride for Life, the Food Trucks arrive at the Imola racetrack

The 7th edition of the Ride for Life has officially started,with the Champions Challenge planned at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola over the weekend of November 19 to 20. It’s the second time that the charity event Riders4Riders is held in Imola.
In 2015, the organization was able to collect 15,000 euros actively supporting the course of treatment of the unfortunate Australian driver Daniel McCoy, the victim of a serious accident during the Monster Energy SX Glasgow.
The ticket to the event is for 10 Euros (children under 12 have free entrance, you’ll find below how to buy advanced tickets).
The event, combined with a rich raffle lottery and the chance to meet the great champions of the two wheels, has increased its value with three authentic elements of uniqueness: Food Truck Ride for Life 016, Passatore Bike Day and Ride for Life Party 016.
The authentic contemporary gastronomic phenomenon of street food will tickle the palate of the public with 20 cooking stations with the best culinary specialties of national and international cuisine.
A trend that has ancient roots: the Greeks described the Egyptian custom of frying the fish and selling it on the street.
A custom that passed to the Roman world with discoveries of “thermopolia” (ancestors of the modern “shack”) also in the excavations of Herculaneum and Pompeii. The “street” food today identifies and distinguishes the territory and tradition, keeping alive part of the food culture of every people. In the States, the most famous food trucks are the centre of every gourmet chef and media’s attention.
Ride for Life 2016 takes up the challenge and centers the Food Truck among the great attractions at Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola on the weekend of the event.
The box office is open everyday from 8 am to experience live all the amazing events at Ride for Life 2016 and meet the champions.

WHAT IS RIDE FOR LIFE?
Ride For Life is a sporting charity event whose proceeds are used for assistance to riders who were victims of serious accidents in a race or during their workout and to support scientific research that deals with the treatment of spinal cord injuries.
The event was born six years ago in Faenza through the efforts of Riders4Riders Onlus, which after two editions was accompanied by Marina Romoli Onlus, involving pilots and important names of the Italian and international cycling world.
In 2015, the sixth edition of the Ride for Life, held at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola (BO), supported the search for a cure for chronic spinal injuries. Memorabilia donated by famous champions have helped to raise money through online auctions.
Riders4Riders is a non-profit organization founded in 2010 by riders and motorcycle enthusiasts with the aim to raise funds to assist riders seriously injured and to support research for the treatment of spinal cord injury.
Born as a result of serious accidents involving young drivers from various motorcycle specialty, Riders4Riders has been able to coordinate and make more effective the efforts of many generous volunteers, managing to give continuity to solidarity initiatives organized in a systematic way to help pilots in serious trouble and support research that deals with treating spinal cord injury.
Champions and amateurs, able-bodied and disabled, team managers and fans, fans and curious, all united to feel part of a big family that does not forget the less fortunate friends, but with them tries to give them the hope of a better tomorrow.
The association promotes donations to the 5 × 1000 tax on annual income (indicating the CF 90029430395 Riders4Riders non-profit organization): an act of great civic responsibility that does not cost anything to the taxpayer, but which is of great social value.
Riders4Riders collaborates with the Italian Motorcycle Federation and the major sports and local agencies, promoting joint initiatives aimed at safety in sports.
