(SPOT.ph) Biking is a good way to take in the gorgeous sights near and around Metro Manila. It's no wonder that Rizal has become a cyclist's mecca, especially on weekends when urban dwellers just want to get out of the city, enjoy the view of Sierra Madre, and feel the chilly breeze from the mountainside. And on October 24, Sunday, Robinsons Malls and National Bike Organization are holding a fun bike tour around the winding roads of Antipolo. Ride starts at Robinsons Metro East in Pasig City at 6 a.m., and ends at Robinsons Place Antipolo in Rizal Province.

“The Robinsons Malls Fun Ride at Robinsons Metro East and Robinsons Place Antipolo is just one of Robinsons Malls’ various initiatives to promote active and healthy lifestyle and encourage biking as an eco-friendly alternative to mobility. We collaborated with National Bicycle Organization for regular biking lessons at Robinsons Place Manila, Robinsons Magnolia, and Robinsons Metro East. We also launched self-service Bike Repair Stations and secure bike parking areas in Robinsons Malls nationwide,” said Myron Lawrence Yao, Operations Director of Robinsons Malls Luzon.

This edition of the fun ride follows the succesful Robinsons Place Manila Bike Tour in July. It is part of Robinsons Malls’ response to the increasing numbers of bikers in the country. They have also provided venues for the National Bicycle Organization's (NBO) bike lessons at Robinsons Place Manila and Robinsons Metro East; launched self-service Bike Repair Stations at Robinsons Malls nationwide; and opened well-lit and secure bike parking areas in the malls.
