The first and only asphalt pump tracks and bike park in Metro Manila is finally open at the Ortigas & Co.’s 10-hectare master planned mix use community, Circulo Verde, in Calle Industria, Quezon City. The Bike Playground brings the outdoor experience closer to your home and office and guarantees an unbeatable biking experience as it simply has so much to offer – the Philippines’ first signature pump track, a 1km Outdoor Trail, and an Outdoor Kids Track.
“Combining small town charm with big city dynamism, it is another testament to Ortigas & Company’s commitment in transforming some of the country’s most iconic places into a hub that weaves living, shopping, business, and entertainment,” says Architect Renee C. Bacani, Vice President of Ortigas & Co.
The Bike Playground was built by Vesolutions headed by international designer and mountain bike luminary Calusio Caluori. Swiss-born Caluori discovered his passion for mountain biking at a young age and went on to ride competitively from the late 1990s. Claudio started building world-class pump tracks, pump parks, and downhill trails all over the world while serving as team manager for Gstaad-Scott, a World Championships winning team of riders.
The Bike Playground was inaugurated last weekend with French pump track specialist Adrien Loron gracing the event. Adrien is a role model who has helped build pump tracks around the world and is now sharing his expertise for The Bike Playground.
The Bike Playground welcomes beginners and serious trainers. It caters to all skill levels and different types of bicycles from mountain bikes and road bikes to BMX and Cyclocross. It not only sets the benchmark for world-class biking facilities but also enables more Filipinos enjoy biking and its benefits for the long haul.
