Pru Life UK is set to launch another edition of the country’s biggest cycling festival, the PRURide PH, to the province of Pampanga.
The 2020 edition of the PRURide PH brings its high-octane races in the city of Clark to cater more than 2,500 cyclists, including 18 local and international professional teams, who will race in 10 categories. It will run from March 11 to 15, 2019. Competing participants can join the Virtual PRURide and PRURide Criterium which feature different races, including fixed gear, road bike, and mountain bike races. Meanwhile, non-competitive races like the Gran Fondo is perfect for families, beginners and hobbyists, while the Striders Cup is for children aged two to six, who will race using non-pedal bikes. The event next year will also include the Fun Cycle, a new cycling activity meant for Pru Life UK agents and employees.
Another highlight of the event will be the PRURide UCI 2.2 Stage Races, a three-day race accredited by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the world’s governing body for cycling, which will allow cyclists to gather points in order to advance to bigger international competitions. This is PRURide’s second year to be included in the UCI World Calendar.
“We are excited to launch PRURide PH 2020 after the success of our first three editions. Since becoming UCI 2.2-accredited in 2019, PRURide PH is expected to grow bigger and become more exciting,” shares SVP and chief customer marketing officer Allan Tumbaga. “It is now a five-day marquee featuring recurring cycling activities made more thrilling with the addition of new routes in Clark and Tarlac. With these, we aim to offer the best PRURide PH yet to our recreational and professional cyclists from the Philippines and Asia.”
PRURide PH’s celebrity ambassadors, Gretchen Ho, Kim Atienza, and Zoren Legaspi, will also help in ushering the event. They will also compete in various full-powered festival rides as well.
