dear friends,

this christmas charity ride was the idea of vekvek viray of team logic gate, atty tiboy reyes the team captain of team rocka, liston yao and carlos tan of team rocka and rogen of team fil chi. start of the ride was at jolibee sta lucia..up valley golf in antipolo and charity gift giving starts at the climbs of bugarin up to manang rina eatery (auntie rina's eatery / cycling station ) at the mountains of distance is 45 kilometers one way. At Jolibee sta lucia station we received donations of rice, canned goods, slippers, biscuits cookies, instant noodles used books and clothings from our supporters mr winston and ave chua of team xterra...we also like to thank teammate engr rolly cruz of Nickel Asia Corporation who at the last minute decide to double bisekletaguy's the money was used to buy rice which was repacked in kilo bags and together with the canned goods we distributed over 150 bags to young children along bugarin. The final lot of books and remaining used clothings we brought to manang rina who owns an eatery and the cycling station at bugarin..she was delighted to see the goodies and promised to send them to children in her area.

overall it was a fun and memorable weekend. we look forward to the bigger event come christmas next year.
