India's women bikers

24 September 2012 Last updated at 22:08 BST

Motorbikes have always been popular in India, but it is usually men who are in the driving seat.

Now, more women are starting to ride these machines, and a number of female-only clubs have helped kick-start this trend. And these women are overturning some widely held stereotypes.

The Association of Female Bikers in India, Bikerni, is the first India-wide motorcycle club for women. It was started 18 months ago and has more than 100 active members who regularly take part in group rides.

It was co-founded by Firdaus Sheikh, who estimates there are as many as 4,000 women bikers across India.
