Dance and Ride at Livestrong Day

“I wish we had Zumba more”, those were the exact words I heard from Tina Zamora of Loop Bikers and Carol Tiamzon of Polkit as we paced almost a thousand cyclists, who joined the Livestrong Circulo Verde Twilight Ride in Quezon City last May 20.

Yes you heard it right! I danced. Zumba is a latin-inspired dance fitness brought to the Philippines. Actually, I had thoughts of not joining the stretching few minutes before the ride, because dancing is not my cup of tea but when I saw the guys wiggled and stomped their feet… Eric Bergara, Tessa Prieto, Joey Santos (VP for Ortigas Real Estate Properties), staff of Circulo Verde and the music, I couldn’t help myself :) Thanks Gold’s Gym.

It was drizzled throughout our 21 Kms twilight ride from Circulo Verde going to Ortigas properties. It was 6:00pm already when we got back at Circulo Verde open field and barbeques, Nachos, San Miguel Beers and more foodies greeted us.

It was a fun reunion for the supporters and volunteers of Livestrong Team Philippines.  Met friends from AWAT Bikers, Biker Friends, Loop Bikers, Bike Campers, Polkit, BikeBros PH, Philmofo and more.

Hope to see more supporters in October for Livestrong Day 2012.
