Philippine, December 11, 2016 – The Philippine Bicycle Demo group enabled 4,000 bikers and their families to experience a bicycle fiesta in Filinvest, Alabang where various bicycles were displayed and ridden around road tracks and dirt trails. More than 150 bicycles of different types from road bikes, triathlon bikes, mountain bikes, cyclocross bikes, folding bikes
to leisure bikes from 35 bicycle brands were made available to the thousands of bicycle aficionados and interested people eager to try this outdoor sport.
A kiddie race was also conducted at the event which saw hundreds of families attending to support their toddlers aged 2-7 years old. The fun races, using special kid push bicycles from different brands, were held with one race per age category (2yrs old to 6yrs old). The top three winners per category were given medals and all the participant racers were given certificates by the organizers.
The event was organized to bridge the Filipino bikers and the various brands of bicycles and accessories in the world market today. This interaction allows bikers to see and try the different products , making them empowered to make decisions on which ones to purchase. Before the event, potential buyers were typically dependent on the limited bicycle offerings of their nearby bike shops and end up not fully enjoying the selection and their ride experiences. Having more than 150 bicycles from 35 bicycle brands with expert attendants and mechanics to assist meant a better customer experience for the old and new buyers alike.
“The Philippine Bicycle Demo Day serves bikers and potential bikers by offering a unique platform whereby a vast array of bicycles from all the world class brands are available for them to see and demo ride on actual road courses and dirt trails the bicycles were design for.” says Arnel Marcelo Andal, Director-Organizer, Philippine Bicycle Demo Group.
2nd Philippine Bicycle Demo Day (Road & Dirt Edition) 2016 is part of the Philippine series of Bicycle Demo ride events which happens twice a year. The 1st Philippine Bicycle Demo Day (Dirt Edition) was a purely Mountain Bike and Cyclocross event which saw 2,000 active people congregate at the Heroes Trail , Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City. The innovative event format is
unique in the Philippines. The organizers Arnel Marcelo Andal, Edmund Ang and Eboy Roselada all come from the different cycling disciplines of Road biking, Trail Mountain biking, Cross Country Mountain biking and Enduro Mountain biking.
