Clark Green City: Bike It Up Challenge 2015

clark

The Bike It Up Challenge 2015 will give riders their first introduction to the 9.4 hectare Clark Green City Project which is envisioned to be the first smart, green and disaster-resilient master-planned community in the Philippines.

On this particular event, the Clark Development Corporation in partnership with the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) wants to showcase their open spaces, foot paths and bike lanes and trails to discourage the frequent use of fuel-burning vehicles, while it tends to encourage walking, cycling and mass-commuting.

The first ever Bike It Up Challenge will be the first sporting event to be held at Clark Green City, the newest development project of Bases Conversion and Development Authority. This will be held on December 12, 2015 at the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.

Bike It Up Challenge will bring bikers to different terrains within Clark Freeport in Angeles to the mountainous trails of Clark Green City, Tarlac. Bikers will experience over 40 kilometer on and off road trails in this challenging sporting event.

There will be a professional and an amateur trail to choose from. For those who want to take a fast paced on and off road with numerous curves may join the amateur division – over 20 kilometer trail with about 90% fast paced on road track and 10% off road trail.

But, for more adventurous and thrill seeking bikers, they may chose to join the professional route – over 40 kilometer on and off road trail with steep climbs and rough terrain combined with high speed on road track. If you want to challenge yourself and put yourself to the limit, then this is the perfect choice for you!

FAQ:

1.Is there an age limit in joining both divisions? 

Participants must be at least 14 years old on the day of the event. There are no maximum age limitations as long as the participants are declared physical fit to join the race.

 2. Can I join the Professional Division even if I’m not a pro-biker and vice-versa? 

Yes. We won’t have a way to gauge or determine each participant’s skill level, so we’re leaving it up to the participants on which division they want to join. The more difficult the route, the better the prizes for the winners.

3. Is there a time limit / cut-off in completing the race?

Yes! Cut-off for the amateur division is 2.5 hours, and for the professional division is 5 hours.

4. How do we ensure that we are safe and on the right trail?

We will be providing marshals all throughout the course and on every critical points, and numerous signage and flags to ensure that all riders are on the correct trail at all times.  

5. Are there water stations along the route? What if I suddenly need medical assistance?

We have strategically placed numerous water and medical stations all throughout the course. Trained medical teams are on standby to give the necessary first aid treatments to participants who might need them. We also have an ambulance ready for participants who might need to be transported as soon as possible to the nearest hospital.

6. Does all participant start at the same time at the same place?

No and yes.

No, not all participants will start at the same time. Bike It Up Challenge is a time challenge, winners will be determined by the fastest time to complete the course in their respective division.

Yes, all participants in both divisions will be starting at the same starting point. The race will begin by deploying first the Professional Division, 10 bikers for every 10 seconds, then followed by the Amateur Division in the same format of 10 bikers for every 10 seconds.
