Cycle Asia Adds Philippines to its Network via Cycle Philippines

cycleasia

When my good friend P told me that this year a big cycling series of events will happen in the Philippines and that I should make sure to join, I just listened to her in awe but at the same time clueless of what it actually is and how big it is. I just took a mental note to actually not to forget about going to Google for two names/terms which she mentioned – Cycle Asia and BGC Cycle Philippines.

And here’s what I found out:

CYCLE ASIA

Owned and organised by Spectrum Worldwide, Cycle Asia is a network of premier cycling events hosted across the region. It offers cyclists the rare opportunity to ride on closed public roads in major Asian cities. Cycle Asia caters to all ages and abilities, from the youngest cyclist on three wheels to the more serious cyclist looking to test themselves on a challenging ride.

BGC CYCLE PHILIPPINES

This means that Philippines will, on this year, be officially part of Cycle Asia’s network and will be playing host to a number of cycling events happening at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City.

And to make this all happen is none other than Sunrise Events, Inc., the premier sports event organizer in the country who partnered with Cycle Asia and Bonifacio Global City for this endeavor.

This is surely one exciting news to bikers in the Philippines and a must-look-forward-to event.

Full details are not yet available but here is an official press release that gives us an idea on what exciting things are set to happen. Read on!

PRESS RELEASE:

BGC CYCLE PHILIPPINES OFFERS EXCITING ADDITION TO CYCLE ASIA CALENDAR

SINGAPORE, 1 July 2013 – Cycle Asia is excited to announce that in partnership with Sunrise Events and Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Cycle Philippines has been added to its 2013 event calendar and will offer a range of thrilling ride categories from 15-17 November.

Located within Taguig City, Manila, Bonifacio Global City is set to host BGC Cycle Philippines and will take cyclists past a number of Manila’s most iconic landmarks throughout a truly unique route on closed public roads.

The event will also 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 included in the schedule. The entire family will also be kept entertained over the three days with a range of fun activities within 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. 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,” said Manny Blas II, Head of Commercial Operations, Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation.

Cycle Asia, owned and organised by Spectrum Worldwide, has already played host to two hugely successful events in 2013 with OCBC Cycle Malaysia and OCBC Cycle Singapore attracting over 5,000 and 11,500 participants respectively. The Gold Coast Festival of Cycling also features on the 2013 Cycle Asia calendar and will be staged from 27-29 September.

“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 the cycling action during BGC Cycle Philippines, Bonifacio Global City also offers a huge 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 .
