CLARK, PHILIPPINES – The Department of Tourism – Region III is set to launch the very first BIKE TOUR EXPO 2016 on July 30-31 in Clark Freeport in Pampanga, Philippines. The event has two components – Bike Tour and Bike Expo.
Bike Tour takes place around the Clark Freeport area (assembly at SM City Clark @ 5:00 in the morning) where some 400 cyclists / road / mountain bikers are required to pedal their way thru some 15 designated hydration / pit stops – all considered to be tourist attractions and facilities. As the day-long event is meant to be a leisurely touristy ride (not a race), bikers are given the entire day to finish all 15 stops at their own pace. In each stop, there will be a photo wall where they are encouraged to have their selfie or groufie and post their photos on social media (Facebook or Instagram). Participants with the highest number of ‘likes’ will have a chance to win exciting prizes. All registered participants in this event will be given free shirts and loot bags provided by the event’s sponsors. Registration is FREE. No obligation required except that each participant should bring his own bike and helmet. Just make it to the first 400 registered participants to join the tour and share your passion.
On the other hand, the Bike Expo will be happening inside the event center of SM City Clark for two days on July 30 and 31. This will be an exhibition of different bike companies, apparels, accessories and gears. Simultaneously, prominent personalities and experts from the biking community are expected to share their thoughts on the share-the-road advocacy program. As of this date, the confirmed speakers are: Jack Yabut, the father-daughter tandem of Donjie and Ariana Dormitorio, Bryan McClelland, Angel Simbol, Bernadette Aguirre, Dir. Benedict Camara and Eboy Roselada. There will be no entrance fee for this event as well.
The event is not only for adults but for kids too! Strider Philippines, known for a new technology on bike training for kids will be part of the event. They will be setting up their famous Strider Adventure Zone for kids ages 3 and up. There will be a free hands-on demo of their bicycles on Saturday and Sunday morning and in the afternoon will be a friendly race within the adventure zone for kids.
The event is in partnership with Clark Development Corporation, Strider Philippines, Tourism Promotions Board and Manila North Tollways Corporation. It is co-presented by SM City Clark, Park Inn by Radisson Clark, Bonamine, Trinx Bikes, Royce Hotel and supported by Gatorade, Globe Telecom, Crystal Power and Supremo World Cameras. Also partnering with the tourism department are: Angeles City Tourism Office and Philippine Retirement Authority.
