"…i am not a religious man… but my body is my temple… the pavement is my church… every step, a grace from God… every breath, a silent prayer … every distance, a holy blessing… every run, a fervent worship…" ;-P

Today marks the first ever National Bike Day in the Philippines.

Six riding events will be held simultaneously today across the country. Alongside these events is the BGC Cycle Philippines.

My niece Paige and I attended last year’s Kid’s Ride but sadly had to miss this year’s activities due to prior engagements. We may ride out on our own later in the neighborhood to commemorate this historic event.

Now if you have a bike and are close by wherever you are, it’s not too late to join. If you can’t make it to these events but can make time today on your own, please do take the time to take your bike out and ride around. It’s about time we do our part. As the National Bicycle Day’s slogan goes:

“Shifting Towards A Bicycle Friendly Philippines.”

For everyone joining the National Bike Day events in the six key cities in the Philippines and those attending BGC Cycle Philippines, Happy National Bike Day everyone!

Speaking of BGC Cycle Philippines, last Friday’s Press Launch saw the first day of race kit claiming for registered participants, a press conference with several cycling elites and a bike expo held at The Mind Museum in BGC.

Missing in action due to personal reasons were Sunrise Events CEO Fred Uytengsu and Sprectrum CEO Chris Robb but they recorded welcome messages for the press conference.

On hand for the Q&A are the organizers, guest elites & partners.

I ran my first ever fun run in Greenfield in 2010. A 3K that took me 35 minutes to finish. A year later I celebrated my anniversary by running a 21K. Save for the 2012 which I missed, I also ran the 21K  at their Christmas Run there last year. This year’s theme is a Run For Generations.

10754535_10152397636187539_2107146111_o

Inspired by Greenfield’s goal to produce a community that it’s residents can pass on to one generation to the next, the 2014 edition is aptly titled the Greenfield City Run For Generations 2014 .


10733008_10152397630572539_113051141_o

Runners familiar to the route will enjoy relatively flat & wide roads within the Greenfield properties. What’s new this year is the addition of the Solen Residences to the route. A newly-finished enclave within Greenfield, Solen Residences boasts of a clubhouse akin to the one found in Anvaya Cove, aside from a gated community that boasts of modern homes, open fields and tight security.
