Excited over this. Anyone and any bike can join this.
Already registered at their HQ! And my goodness, the jerseys and t-shirts are so limited and are going fast! Excited for my first TOF!
Nothing exciting, biking Lang yan sa road, slow pace tapos yun pauwi kanya kanya na.
Not gonna join again
Nag pa register na kami ng mga friends ko here in Greenland Cainta. Nice color of jersey.
its the time of the year to show we are ten thousand strong!
I’ve joined the ToF since its inaugural ride. i know its riding on paved road (and boring to those DH/trail maniacs) , but this activity is more on a social responsibility and awareness, lets ride together XD
Malapit-lapit na, once in every year makakatikim na naman ang metro street ng 3 hours less smog hehe sana mas lumawig pa ang pagpapadyak na physically and environmentally healthy for all us! Let support this campaign.
sana magkaroon na ng bicycle lanes sa buong metro manila kahit paunti-unti…
at sana magkaroon ng batas na sobrang mahal ang magiging multa ng mga sasagi sa mga naka-bike…
sarap mag-bike…dami nga lang humaharurot na sasakyan na kailangan iwasan …”patintero”…
kung walang batas para sa kapakanan ng mga bikers, hindi mapo-promote ang pagbibisikleta dito…(just sharing my views/thoughts)….
sali kami dito…YES to CYCLING!
Kung may run for a cause, eto fun ride for a cause. Here is a picture of what the fun ride would be like. https://www.flickr.com/photos/technopinoy/3458669482/
It was my first tour of the fireflies. hope i can join again next yearssss. Well done, organizers!

THIS IS WHY WE FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHT TO ROAD SAFETY AND FOR OUR RIGHT TO OUR PROTECTED SPACE ON THE ROAD”
Just last November 17, 2012 Saturday when most of our cycling enthusiasts & weekend bikers were busy preparing themselves for the upcoming fun ride : 14th Tour of the Fireflies, our fellow everyday bike commuter & advocate Jojie Puricallan, 43, was only pedaling his way home to Tagumpay Villag
e, San Jose, Montalban, Rizal as he has been normally doing for the past years & decades since.
In his earnest desire to take care of his family & to have savings on transportation expenses, he chooses to bike to & from his place of work inspite of the obvious danger & horror that the immense dump trucks plying the area pose to defenseless & vulnerable bike commuters like him.
After fighting it out in a nearby hospital, Jojie passed away due to severe loss of blood from mortal wounds sustained with his fatal encounter with an unforgiving menace of the iron dump truck that ended his hopes and aspirations.
JOJIE IS NOT ALONE.
With deep sadness & anger, he joins the 1.3 Million Fatalities and the 50+ Million Dismembered & Disabled people robbed of their dreams in a violent clash with death.
After 11 years, the world still mourns for the 2,976 who lost their lives in the 9/11 World Trade Center Terrorist Attacks.
But every single day, close to 3,300+ people are killed on the world’s most dangerous highways. And for the past 11 years, there has already been a massacre of 13.5 MILLION.
TODAY, it is already the TOP 1 CAUSE OF DEATH
for those falling in the 15 to 30 Age Bracket.
It is a Humanitarian Crisis of epidemic proportions.
It is a Global, Local, and Grassroots horror.
It is not their fate. It is not by design. It is not right.
There are no accidents. There is only negligence.
Cycling enthusiasts, runners, triathletes…and other sports-minded persons…Sign the Petition. Spread the Word. Step Up the Cause. Save a Life.
