MORE THAN 150 riders across the country have confirmed their participation in the much-anticipated Manggahan Grand Fun Ride on May 20, 2018.

According to organizer Mhar Esmaña, aside from the region’s bikers, several cyclists from neighboring Visayas provinces and other Manila-based riders will join the event.

The event, which is designed for all kinds and types of bikers, will ride en masse from Buenavista Wharf to Woodland Bike Park to promote sportsmanship, camaraderie, road sharing, and eco-tourism.

The fun ride is one of the side events of the Manggahan Bike Fes as part of the Manggahan Festival 2018 of the province of Guimaras.

Organized by John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University (JBLFMU) in partnership with the local government of Guimaras, various bike events were mounted at the Woodland Bike Park in Ravina Sur, Sibunag, Guimaras.

Woodland Bike Park is the newest getaway for biking enthusiasts and nature lovers with facilities, accommodations, and tracks ideal for any biking activity. The park and its featured sporting events were created to promote Guimaras Island as the Bike Paradise of the Philippines and the premier biking destination of the country.

From May 13 to 22, 2018, the bike fest will feature national competitions for Downhill Riders Organization of the  Philippines (DROP), National Invitational Enduro, Sandugo MTB Epic Race, 4X/BMX Invitational, Kiddie Fun Race, Manggahan Grand Fun Ride, and Tour de Guimaras along with Guimaras Bike Exhibit.

More or less 300 cyclists also competed in the Tour de Guimaras on May 13. All participants survived the 110-km road race as they traversed the Island Province of Guimaras.

This was the second and final leg of the two most renowned road cycling races for the Ilonggos. The first leg will be Tour de Quiñon in Panay and will have a format of team races and individual race.

Other biking events include the Kiddie Fun Race which gives electric vibe and fun to all adventure seeker kids. This will be the fourth fun race designed for the children ages 14 years old and below. This is also the most important event for families to get together and have an amazing bike experience at Woodland Bike Park.
