GC Cycle will be 3-day event for cyclists in the Bonifacio Global City from November 15-17. Several routes will be closed to vehicles so that riders of all ages and abilities will have a safe place to bike. There’s a Tricycle Rides for toddlers, The Kids’ Ride (which will bring in a lot of families) and a Community Ride of 20k. For elites and spectators there’s an exciting 40k criterium. Registration opens online on August 1.
Expect it to be a big, fun, well-organized, world-class pedal fest in BGC. Sunrise events (the guys who brought in the Ironman franchise for triathlon) hopes to do the same for bikers by bringing in the Cycle Asia event (Australia, Singapore, Malaysia are cities that already host this event). BGC Cycle Philippines plans to replicate the positive fair like energy of the event that kids, families, and cycling enthusiasts of all levels can enjoy. The goody bag every registered participant get is also something to look forward to: shades by Rudy Project, jerseys by F2P, and technical tees by Felt Bikes. The beneficiary of BGC Cycle Philippines, quite appropriately is the Firefly Brigade.
