World Bike Day 2019


June 2 was designated as World Bike Day and we joined the celebration as we are all bike addicts. LOL.  Instead of our group doing a long ride, we decided to join an event organized by Decathlon, Festival Mall and Bike Scouts Philippines.

The day started with a quick one hour morning ride in Festival City.  There were maybe 150 riders that day (I might be wrong with that number) that joined and mostly were from around the area.  I know of some coming all the way from Makati, Manila and San Juan who joined this event.

Decathlon Alabang was open already for us riders to accomodate quick bike accessories purchases and registration of participants.  Bike Scouts Philippines, Myles Delfin then started the program by welcoming the riders.  Just a simple ceremony and we were off to do our ride.

Supposedly there was a one hour bike ride around Festival City for us and we just did three laps when we were finished.  Now the next activity would happen 3pm so we all decided to visit our friend who sells bike parts in Muntinlupa.  Got some quick chit chats then we went our separate ways.

Before the 3pm activity, I went on a short bike ride (25kms) prior to attending Decathlon's World Bike Day celebrations in Festival City River Park area.  I just made a quick look see and proceeded to complete my bike loop (Victoria-Daang Reyna - Daang Hari - Muntinlupa National Road).  A total of 30 kilometers average.

Overall, I celebrated World Bike Day with my trusted hybrid, and with my bike friends, and got to meet new people in Decathlon Alabang and Bike Scouts Philippines.  Biking is something of a great activity as bikers tend to be a friendly lot.  Everyone knows the hardships we endure riding on the road, of how our body aches when we do ride, we feel the joys and pain every time we pedal, so we share all of these making us very friendly with each other, willing to help one another.  We hope that this new bonding with these two organizations, we shall raise awareness to the public the importance of biking.  Of how it shall improve mobility, improving our traffic situation, having more friends (physically) and leading us to healthier lives as well.
