Incoming: Filinvest Endurance Weekend 2016

Posted by on 15. September 2016

It’s a ride all you can weekend on October 8-9, 2016 as Filinvest Endurance Weekend is back. Passionate bikers converge at Filinvest City once again as they ride unlimited for 6 hours, 12 hours and 24 hours category.

Filinvest Endurance Weekend

Filinvest Endurance Weekend has gone a long way from its very first staging a few years ago.  It has evolved to be among the key endurance biking events that passionate cyclists and teams are looking forward to.  You have the Filinvest trails, which is among the most bike friendly trail available and you have a team aimed at keeping the bike meet organized and challenging.  How many loops can you make in a span of 6 hours? 12 hours? and 24 hours?  This is a test of will, strength and endurance.

Crazy as it seem.  The endurance weekend is among the events that some cyclists are waiting for . According to Coach Donjie Dormitorio, you forget about the time, the fatigue and the effort of a 24 hour ride but you just remember the love and passion for cycling.

If you love to bike?  Endurance weekend is something for you to try and… try again and again.  The route this year would be a lot more challenging since they would do the reverse loop of the regular cycling loop in Filinvest City. There will be more ascents on this route.  It’s advised that you do try out the trails too for you to get the feel of the trails and be familiar with the elevation profile and surfaces.

    This is definitely a test of one’s endurance. Which is more strenuous and tiring, running or cycling?
