All roads lead to Arcovia City in Pasig this weekend, November 24 and 25, 2018 for the Philippine cycling community as the 4th Philippine Bicycle Demo Day unfolds.
The Bike Demo is on its fourth run in three years. C0-founders Arnel Andal and Edmund Ang envisioned the event to be the biggest gathering of everything about bikes in the country. An estimated eighty (80) percent of bicycle suppliers in the country will be present to demo their latest bike technology and products. Bike enthusiasts will have the opportunity to test ride hundreds of bicycles of all types from various manufacturers and brands.
Entrance is FREE, but if you would like to test ride that bike you have been dreaming of, you just need to pay Php 150 for online registration. You may click HERE to register online.
On site registration will be available, too. For an affordable registration fee of Php 200 good for two (2) days, bikers will be able to test ride all types of bikes: MTB, Road, CX, Gravel, Folding, Fixed, Mini Velo and BMX among others. Riders who will register will be required to present 2 valid government issued ID’s. In the absence of 2 government issued ID, riders will be asked to present 1 government issued ID and a credit card. These items will be retained by the Demo Exhibitor during the ride and returned to the rider at the end of the ride. Demo riders are required to bring their own helmets, safety gears, shoes, water bottles, and pedals if they want to be clipped in. Only platform pedals will be provided by the exhibitors.
Lastly, the demo biker will be required to have his photo taken with the chosen demo bike by the exhibitors.
