Because of an overstaying virus, bikes have never been more in vogue – both for transportation and fitness. But in order to get to destination or goal requires serious skills through training and experience. And then there’s the issue of staying motivated and committed. In the “normal” past, local races like Audax Randonneur and Le Tour de Filipinas challenge riders on a grueling journey, to go the distance or beat one’s personal best.
One sure-fire way to keep the mojos flowing and stay commitment to a training or fitness goal is to be part of the first ever Virtual Ride by Takbo.ph. Wear your colors proud with our Philippine inspired entitlements for the HERITAGE VIRTUAL RIDE 2020! You can ride a bike outdoors: on the road, or trail. Or you can spin indoors with your trainers.
Sign up to complete a total mileage of either 50KM, 150KM, 300KM or 600KM. Then, ride anytime and anywhere between September 1 to October 15. Once you reached your goal, you get our limited edition HERITAGE Finisher Jersey and a Finisher Medal.
Registration Fee: PREMIUM [Php 1,850]
Venue and Duration of Event
This is a Virtual Ride. The distance is not to be completed in just one ride. Instead, you can ride a few kilometers in a day from September 1, 2020 to October 15, 2020 until you complete the target distance .
