The Unforgettable First Phil-Bike Expo 2014

It's a memorable day for bike enthusiasts last November 15 as they give a warm welcome to the very first Phil-Bike Expo 2014, which is held in the World Trade Center Metro Manila!
Visitors expect to witness the showcase of awesome, rare and vintage custom bicycles, exciting competitions & entertainment and interesting seminars in this fun-filled 2-day bike expo.   
To officially declare the opening of this expo event, Bacoor City Representative Lani Mercado-Revilla along with other special guests did the ribbon-cutting.

Speaking of rare, let me ask you, have you seen a bike made of bamboo? Fortunately, I've seen a few in the exhibit booth of Bambike Evolution Cycles. What's good about these bikes are they're for a good cause. They are hand-made by the workers from Gawad-Kalinga, a known community development organization for the poor in the country.
