It’s great to see three of the most trusted motorbike brands in the Philippines coming and joining together for one special occasion that aims to celebrate brotherhood, passion, and freedom of motorists, the 4th Partakan Festival, which will happen on April 14-15, 2017 at Anguib Beach in Sta. Ana, Cagayan.
Ronald Carreon, Department Head of Sales and Marketing, Honda Philippines Inc.; John Carlo Roque, Regional Head for North Luzon, Yamaha Motor Philippines; and Dan Darang, Brand Manager, Kawasaki Motors Philippines Inc. join forces for the annual Partakan Festival to provide sponsorship, bike clinics, camaraderie, family bonding, and promote Moto-tourism in this side of Northern province in far away Luzon island. Carreon, Roque, and Darang represented their respective brands during the Media Launch of 4th Partakan Festival at the showroom of Ropali Motorcycles in Ropali Plaza, Ortigas.
Ropali Motorcycles, headed by brother and sister team, Aldous Alingog, General Manager and Ariane Arabel Alingog, President, has been doing Partakan festival for four years already and it is the first and only ride and rock festival in the country which aims to unite all the riders, promote Moto-tourism, and provide a venue for their family bonding. Ropali Motorcycles is one of the biggest motorcycle dealership in the country with 128 branches nationwide.
Ropali Motorcycles and Honda Philippines Inc., together with other major sponsors, Kawasaki Motors Philippines Inc., Yamaha Motor Philippines, and Suzuki Philippines will bring excitement to participating challengers and to the audience at Anguib Beach with thrilling activities like the Amazing Ride Moto-Tourism Challenge sponsored by Shell where participants can win up to P20,000 cash and other amazing prizes.
Since 2014, the white sand beaches of Puzo Rubo in Sta. Ana, Cagayan was opened to the public where they can camp out for free with no entrance fee. This year, the festival is set at Anguib Beach, located on the north eastern tip of Luzon Riders will also enjoy other activities such as inter-club survivor games, auto/moto race, motorcycle raffles, fireworks display, and band concert.
Sta. Ana, Cagayan is more or less a 15-hour bus ride from Manila and stretched at 654 kilometers that will pass by nearby provinces of Bulacan, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Isabela, Kalinga, and Cagayan. It will be a great road trip for us because we are also going there to cover the 4th Partakan Festival and we’re already excited for the trip as we’ll be able to see the beauty of Cagayan.
It’s a nice thing that the Department of Tourism (DoT) is also partnering with Partakan Festival to help promote Cagayan Valley as one of the tourist destinations in the northern Luzon. When asked why DoT is helping to promote Moto-tourism, Inake Jose, Representative, Department of Tourism, replied, “Why not?” The road to Cagayan Valley is for the adventurous travelers, tourists, and backpackers and it’s really great to see it up close. We’ve already joined a backpacking trip as a motorcycle back rider to Baler for Ride Along Motorcycle Tours organized by Travel Concierge and it was fun. It’s not a safe ride but if you coupled it with safety and fun-filled journey, Moto-tourism is always a memorable and shareable experience. Check out our Quickie in Baler story.
The 4th Partakan festival is also supported by Kymco Philippines, Mahindra, Ginebra, Spyder, WRU, Sheild Helmets, Tree Top Adventure, Pioneer, and Universal Robina.
