It’s my third visit to the Philippines for the event, and I’m looking forward to riding with everyone again on closed roads around BGC and Manila. Most of all, I’m looking forward to the excitement of the kids’ rides. It’s always a highlight to see the kids’ excited and happy faces as they enjoy riding while being cheered on by their families.  It’s going to be a fantastic weekend not to be missed!,” enthused McEwen who also happens to be the official Cycle Asia Ambassador.

BGC Cycle Asia Philippines offers a weekend of fun and bonding for cyclists, cycling enthusiasts and for the entire family.

“The participation in Cycle Philippines through the years have shown us that cycling is here to stay and that is going beyond hobby and sport, where people are more and more using it as an alternative mode of transportation to get around the metro. This insight pushed us to implement more bike racks around the city. Furthermore, it also inspired us to experiment with a bike-sharing program which will be launched in the near future,” said Mr. Manuel Blas II, Head of Commercial Operations for Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation.
