Motorcyclists gathered at the event from 10:00 a.m., leaving for the ride an hour later. Jaroslav Vavřina from the Harley-Davidson Prague dealership told ČTK that they organized the event because they supported Pavel throughout the duration of his election campaign. “We wanted him as president and we got that wish,” he said. The people from Prague Harley participated, for example, in collecting signatures for Pavlov's candidacy.
