“The main purpose of this is to gather mountain bikers of all ages and start them off in appreciating trails and terrains,” Sanchez, during the Davao Sportswriters Association (DSA) Forum held at the Annex of SM City Davao on Thursday, July 11, said.
She added that this will be 5-kilometer friendly ride that will be staged simultaneously in Manila, Cebu City, Pampangga, Cagayan de Oro City, and Bacolod City among others.
“Actually this is a worldwide event,” Sanchez, who was accompanied by fellow cluster sales head Ronald Jae Patalita, said.
Jake Custodio of Adventure X, meanwhile, said that they have designed a friendly track suitable for young and old riders within Crocodile Park.
“We created a road that has terrains and trails but safe for all types of mountain bikers,” Custodio said.
Sanchez, however, said the event is open to all bikers but they are suggesting to use mountain bike tires that will be able to withstand the trails and terrains they have prepared.
She also said they will going to host a post-ride games and activities, and will be giving away raffle prizes.
Some 95 participants have already signed up. Sanchez, however, said they are targeting a total of 200 participants, thus, she is inviting all bikers in Davao City to support the event.
