Kuklos sa Kolektiv
Malugay Street, Makati City 12 March, 2011 at 11 am
The word “kuklos” in Greek has two meanings — it’s the word for “bicycle” but can also refer to a “circle or collective of like-minded people.” The Kuklos sa Kolektiv bicycle show and festival will bring together the diverse groups in the cycling community — from BMX riders, to mountain bikers, to fixies, to folding bikers, to vintage bike enthusiasts, and more– to celebrate the different ways of having fun on two wheels. For inquiries please contact Pia Faustino or send emails at piafaustino[at]gmail[dot]com. Invitation is posted in Facebook.
Online registration is now available.
I’ve always been fascinated as to what the buzz is all about with the 29er bikes. The 29er bikes use the bigger 29″ wheels as against the 26″ wheels of the regular mountain bikes.
The most common feedback I get from 29er owners is that they like the 29ers’ geometry because the frame gives them a somewhat relaxed albeit a more natural position while on the saddle especially for the taller riders.
Weight weenie riders often shy away from 29ers because of the added weight brought about by the larger frame size, wheel size, fork, and the list goes on.
I dropped by Gran Trail Cycles in Makati recently and store manager Benj Lopez showed me his Niner Air 9 Carbon bike build. I was having my biked tuned and Benj offered that I take his Air 9 for a quick spin and I quickly obliged .

Bike for the Millennium Development Goals – Cycle out of Poverty CMR (September 18, Saturday)
is a bicycle ride of the United Nations Millenium Campaign and the Firefly Brigade in partnership
with the cities of Manila, Pasay, Makati and the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
Bicycle enthusiasts and non-motorized transportation advocates are encouraged to participate in a leisurely ride through three cities to create awareness for the need to push for the achievement of the Millenium Development Goals with focus on environmental sustainability.
The Bike for MDGs is a part of the Stand Up and Take Action Campaign, a three-day global mobilization of citizens that calls for leaders of rich and poor countries to take urgent action to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of eight specific, measurable, time-bound goals aimed at significantly reducing, if not eradicating extreme poverty.
The Bike for the MDGs also serves as a lead-up activity to the MyStreet Party where an online youth portal for monitoring and improving LGU’s MDG performance will be launched.
