Shimano, global leader in bicycle components, in the partnership with Comet Cycle is set to hold its 4th Dirt and Play XC Fun Race on May 18 at the Felicity Trails in Filinvest City, Alabang.

“Bikes are not only the most eco-friendly means of transportation, Filipinos have also come to appreciate the invigorating experience of biking as a sport and as a way to bond with friends and family members, ” Silver Cycle, organizer of the Shimano 4th Dirt and Play XC Fun Race.

Shimano is serving up an exciting all-day affair with race categories for kids, teens, and seasoned bikers (sport, pro, elite and national team). Simultaneously, a bike expo will showcase the latest models and cutting-edge technology of Shimano from exporters all over the world.

The various bike trail races are expected to draw in hundreds of local enthusiasts as Shimano beefs up the adventure with a bigger and better race experience. “With only 2 lots from last years’ race, we expanded it to 7 and stretched it from 2.5 kilometers to 6 kilometers per lap. We added single tracks, whoops, short climb bursts and switch backs to make it more exciting for the participants. Prizes also await the top 10 finishers,” said Alvin P. Timbol.

Endurance Weekend 2013

Filinvest City, Alabang

September 14-15, 2013

Filinvest City aggressively announced the first ENDURANCE race of the year dubbed “Endurance Weekend 2013″ to be held at Filinvest City. This race is definitely not for everybody but for everybody who would want to test their endurance skills in running and biking the trail. Endurance races set to complete a certain distance and you have to do it as much distance as possible over a preset amount of time.

I tried the 24-hour mountain biking race couple of times (naks! ako na talaga) and believe me it was not easy, in either solo or group category. If you are aspiring to join future endurance races, this is the best time to test yourself.

I haven’t tried endurance races for trail running yet, but hope I can do it someday.

Carless Sundays at Filinvest City

Carless Sundays

I was privileged enough to be invited in the launch of the “Carless Days” from the Filinvest Alabang Inc. Every Sunday, they would be closing out one side of the roads. I can say that this is a great deal for us bikers, runners and the likes, but this is also as well, a maximization of the tree filled, lush landscapes, oxygen-rich atmosphere which is now a rarity in the ever narrowing Metro Manila.

We biked through the area seamlessly and saw some great addition to the area. Though the Filinvest is indeed outdoor friendly, there are spots that are worth stopping by. The loop will be from one side of Corporate, Commerce, Parkway and Filinvest Avenues. Those who don’t have have bikes, there are village bikes can be rented at the Promenade Avenue.

How to get there? Here is the map of Carless Sundays of Filinvest City.

More than anything else, Filinvest area is very nostalgic. Brought back memories of my younger days. Back then, there was only the mall, Festival Supermall, then plains of grass na all over! I used to work inside the mall. Student days pa! Virgin pa ako nun, pak! este innocent. And suprisingly, though major changes has been added to the area, the very innocent feeling I had years ago is still there. Filinvest did just improved on the area, it was still the part of Muntinlupa where I had filled my innocent years!

At dahil dyan, napakanta ako ng Muntilupa Hymn…

I just can’t wait to bring my friends on one of those Carless Sundays, then more more chika of my stories back then! :)
