[Press Release] Manila, Philippines 23 November 2015 – Filipino riders geared up for thrilling bike action around the roads in Metro Manila last November 21 to 22 for the BGC Cycle Asia Philippines.  Close to 2,000 cycling enthusiasts joined the event which featured exciting and challenging categories for children, adults and families.

The event, in its third edition this year, is a part of Cycle Asia, a network of premier cycling events across the region that offers participants the rare opportunity to ride on safe closed public roads in major Asian cities.  It was brought here in the country by organizer Sunrise Events, Inc. in partnership with Cycle Asia and Bonifacio Global City (BGC).

“We are excited to continue an active year of sports for Sunrise Events, Inc. with our team-up with BGC and our international partner, Cycle Asia, the BGC Cycle Asia Philippines made it possible for Filipino families to participate in sports activities as exercise to promote their health and ensure a wholesome lifestyle,” said Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, CEO of Sunrise Events Inc.

The kiddie ride category provided a fun bonding activity for kids and their parents

Prior to the ride events, the entire family were entertained with a wide range of fun activities in the Cycling & Lifestyle Expo at the Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila, the Official Residence of the BGC CycleAsia Philippines for 2016.

The fun cycling action started in the morning of Saturday, November 21 via the kiddie ride categories starting with the 30-minute Junior Challenge ride and followed by The Kid’s Ride and Tricycle Ride categories.  This day proved to be a fun bonding activity for parents and kids complete with post-event ride activities such as the bull ride and kiddie inflatables.

On Sunday, November 22, were the Adult Ride categories.  The event was kicked-off by the Ride with Robbie with Australian former PRO cyclist and three-time Tour de France green jersey sprinter’s classification winner Robbie McEwen.  It was followed by the 40km Challenge Ride and the 20km Community and Foldies Community Rides.

According to Mr. Manuel Blas II, Head of Commercial Operations for Fort Bonifacio Development Corp., “The participation in Cycle Philippines through the years have shown us that cycling is here to stay and that it is going beyond being a hobby and sport where people are more and more using it as an alternative mode of transportation to get around the metro.  This insight pushed us to implement more bike racks around the city.  Furthermore, it also inspired us to experiment with a bike-sharing program which will be launched in the near future.”

With Bonifacio Global City (BGC) as the title sponsor, and with the valuable support of Taguig City, BGC Cycle Philippines has attracted a number of additional sponsors: Gatorade (Hydration Partner), 2Go Express, (Official Courier and Logistics Partner), Ascott Bonifacio Global City (Official Residence) and others including Subaru, Rudy Project, Scott Bikes, Rocktape, Regent, Garmin, Pioneer Insurance, Herbalife, Storybook.ph, Skippy’s bar and Grill and Purefoods Sexy Chix.  Philippine Star and ABS-CBN Sports+ Action are the event’s media partners while Goya and Cetaphil are its marketing partners.
