KIDS CAN RIDE at the BGC Cycle Philippines


When I was young the concept of play for me is where i go outside and play games with the other kids in the neighborhood. And when we say games, it will be a variety of outdoor play activities like “topla”, “luksong tinik/baka”, “sipa”, “tumbang preso”, jacks and stones, chinese garter and a number of other pinoy games that will leave everyone tired, sweaty, at times dirty but truly happy! 

But with the advent of technology, say affordable technology, those days were the kids look forward to playing under the sun are almost gone.  That is why if there are opportunities for the kids to engage in interesting and safe outdoor activities,  I and hubby are almost always game for it.

That is why I am truly excited to be working in the upcoming cycling event, the BGC Cycle Philippines. It is an international ride event where cyclists will get to ride in safe, closed, public roads within the heart of Metro Manila. The ride packages are worth it and best of all, there are ride categories that are fit for any member of the family. As I will be working for the event, I can only sigh with envy to those who will be participating. But then again, even though I can’t, my little boy Adam can still surely get his outdoor play fix, I can sign him up for the Kids Ride event! Yes!!! 

If you have kids too, you might be interested to make the BGC Cycle Philippines a family bonding activity! Have your kids participate in the kids ride on Nov. 16 and have your own ride experience the following day either via the Community or Challenge Ride! Have your kids experience a ride complete with gun starts, start and finish arcs, ride shirts and finisher’s medals – it is like a bike racer role-playing game or just one safe fun ride with other kids!
