Entry Description: Bikelife is a burgeoning community of stunt bikers in London, and further afield.
Riders, mostly young males, meet up and bond over a shared love of motorbikes, performing dangerous stunts and the sense of community that comes with having a shared passion.
Riders are seen as antisocial often having to stay to stay one step ahead of police who invariably try to shut down any meetups and have impounded bikes.
The main purpose of riders in this young movement is not in fact to be antisocial or intimidating, but to gain some sense of freedom, escape, exhilaration and brotherhood in a city that doesn't offer many opportunities for pure reckless abandon.
