Between July 15 – August 15, it’s bike month at R.O.X.! Their largely successful annual Bike Fair returns this year to bring the biking community together, and with it, a whole month of happiness to anyone and everyone who enjoys biking, and who can benefit from it.
The joy that Bike Fair brings is two-pronged. First, it aims to bring happiness to you, the recreational biker. Whether you are an amateur or a seasoned enthusiast, there’s something for you. For two weeks, R.O.X. lets you enjoy huge discounts and promos from your favorite brands. You already know this, but I cannot emphasize enough how important quality equipment is for an active lifestyle. Also, I’m not going to lie — isn’t cool new gear just really fun to have? 😀
Second, R.O.X. — in partnership with Bikes For The Philippines — aims to bring happiness to the children of the Concepcion Integrated School in San Simon, Pampanga. They provide bike racks and bicycles to schools whose students often need to walk for house and hours just to get to class, rain or shine, come hell or high water. Children who receive these bicycles are also taught bike maintanance and road safety — measures further taken to ensure their attendance in school.
Bike For A Cause — which happens on August 14, 2016 Sunday, at the CDC Parade Grounds in Clark, Pampanga — is the fund-raising cycling event meant to accomplish just that. Choose between 30km and 50km distances to ride, although I highly encourage you to evaluate your experience and/or your #goal levels when deciding which route you settle with.
And all that new gear you got at the R.O.X. sale? Feel free to donate the equipment that they replaced! Your old helmets, gloves, pads, jerseys, bells, lights, pumps, and other accessories could still be useful to someone else! Especially to the kids from Concepcion Integrated School. Donation boxes are setup in your nearest R.O.X. stores!
Register for Bike For A Cause at R.O.X. Bonifacio High Street, BGC; and Marquee Mall, Pampanga. Joining the event grants you an event singlet, a race bib number, a cycling cap, snacks, and a stab at raffle prizes!
