MALABONFXD or the Malabon Fixed Cycling Community was established in 2015 and is currently composed of 301 members. The group is open to bike enthusiasts in Metro Manila, mainly in Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, and Valenzuela (Camanava) areas. The group lives by a great motto, “Let’s ride together as one family and enjoy the pleasure of riding a bicycle. Malabonfxd! Nothing compares.”
Their FB page is being managed by admins Paolo Miguel P. Nepomuceno, Marc Jerzon Lupera Ruaburo, Mark Criss, MarMar Lopez, and Eng Villa Cañedo. “Our group is MALABONFXD, more on fixed gear bikes, but we are open to all kinds of bikes and individuals who has a passion for cycling,” says Nepomuceno.
For two consecutive years, there has been a pledge ride or charity ride in which cyclists put up a Sandwich Project to distribute sandwiches and juice drinks to the homeless people along the streets.
Take a look at the 2nd Sandwich Project that was held on April 1, 2016, as MALABONFXD continues to enhance community well-being and bring more meaning to ‘cycling’.
