NEWS RELEASE:

BGC CYCLE PHILIPPINES JOINS CYCLE ASIA

MANILA, PHILIPPINES 25 July 2013 – Filipino riders gear up for three days of thrilling bike

action as Cycle Asia, in partnership with Sunrise Events and Bonifacio Global City (BGC), launches BGC Cycle Philippines from November 15-17 inside the BGC in Taguig City.

BGC Cycle Philippines is the latest addition to the 2013 calendar 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.

The event will cater to cyclists of all ages and abilities with The Tricycle Ride, The Kids’ Ride, The Community Ride (20km), The Challenge (40km) and various Criterium categories.

The entire family will also be kept entertained throughout the three-day event with a wide range of fun activities in the Cycling & Lifestyle Expo.

“Cycling continues to enjoy strong growth in the Philippines and we are naturally thrilled to introduce the event at Bonifacio Global City,” said Manny Blas II, head of Commercial Operations, Fort Bonifacio Development Corp. during the event’s launch at the Seda Hotel at BGC.

“While the unique venue will certainly offer local cyclists a fantastic riding experience, we also look forward to hosting visitors from around the region as they enjoy the unique thrill of participating in the very first BGC Cycle Philippines,” added Blas.

Registration activities start on August 1 via online registration and a Cobra Ironman Launch Special where participants in this premier triathlon event are given special registration rates.

All participants, upon registration will receive premium items from event sponsors which include Rudy Project shades, official cycle wear from F2P and technical tees from Felt Bikes as part of their registration inclusions.

Cycle Asia, owned and organized by Spectrum Worldwide, has already played host to two hugely successful events this year with OCBC Cycle Malaysia and OCBC Cycle Singapore, attracting over 5,000 and 11,500 participants, respectively.

The Gold Coast Festival of Cycling will also be featured on the 2013 Cycle Asia calendar with

the event slated from Sept. 27-29.

“We are delighted to be expanding Cycle Asia to the Philippines and we look forward to working alongside Sunrise Events who have built an outstanding reputation for delivering first-class sporting events,” said Chris Robb, managing director, Spectrum Worldwide.

Aside from cycling action in BGC Cycle Philippines, Bonifacio Global City will offer a wide range of activities for tourists to take advantage of during their stay. The district is well known for its open-air lifestyle retail and dining concept and public art program, as well as a world-class science museum and parks.

The BGC Cycle Philippines will have as its beneficiary the Firefly Brigade whose advocacy is to actively promote the bicycle as a sustainable form of transportation.

With Bonifacio Global City (BGC) as the title sponsor, Fox International Channel as co- presentor and with the valuable support of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), BGC Cycle Philippines has attracted a number of additional sponsors: Gatorade (Hydration Partner), Seda Hotel (Official Residence) and others including Rudy Project, F2P and Felt

Bikes. Philippine Star is the event’s media partner.

Firsts for 2012

Back to 5K

After a not so impressive 2011 long distance races, I’ve decided to cut back the distance and start from the beginning. Instead of running the longest distance (16K) for this year’s Timex Run, I registered for the 5K. I ran yesterday together with Bobby, Jaimie and Let on the last half. We ran at a very relaxed paced and chatted the whole time. Before we knew, we are already near the finish line. It was a FUN 5K run and I should do this more often.

Back to Biking

I woke up early this morning not to go to work but to head to Cainta to meet up with Bobby for our bike ride to Antipolo. I had been wanting to bike for the longest time and since today was a holiday I grabbed the chance to take out my bike after a year of hibernation. As it was in yesterday’s Timex Run, today’s bike ride was also FUN. It was nice revisiting Valley Golf area, Antipolo Church and Hinulugang Taktak. You’ll definitely see Roadie more.

13th Tour of the Fireflies

Bike+Covey Run 2010

I had my first taste of “dua” yesterday. I registered for the Covey Run in Woodinville the last minute but was wondering how to get to the race venue.

The problem with living here in the US temporarily is getting around anywhere. I don’t have a car and was contemplating of renting a car, sleeping over at a friend’s apartment or biking. Renting a car is a bit pricey. If the race was a half or full marathon I could justify the cost but this is just 10K. Sleeping over a friend’s house means I have to wake up my friend early in the morning which might be a hassle for him. And so, I decided to just bike – 20 miles (32 kms) long. Yikes!

To make it to the race venue at 9AM, I left my apartment past 6AM. Wearing a jacket, long sleeves tech shirt, running shorts, running shoes and hydration backpack, I biked through the quiet and cold morning. I got to the starting line at Redhook Brewery with 15 minutes to spare. I bike 20 miles in 1hr and 30 minutes (which I think is my fastest so far). The bike was easy and now comes the hard part, running 10 km after.

The course was flat but I was already feeling the burn on my legs on the 3rd km. My 6 min/km pace became 6:30, 7 then 7:30. I had walking breaks at the water stations. I managed to push my pace back to 6 min/km on the last km and finished the course in 1:09. Way slower than my 58 minutes last year but still a decent time. With more bike+run training I can definitely improve.

So what’s next? Join an official duathlon? We’ll see. 🙂
