Night Ride with the Kids at BHS

Last Thursday, my friends in FBP organized a night bike ride for the kids at Bonifacio High Street in Taguig. Since we were going to be with other children and the ride would be in the Fort Bonifacio area, Bea and I joined them.
We assembled near R.O.X. at 7:30 pm. I saw some friends from TSP, but they had their own ride that night. Meanwhile, Diane gave me the orange reflector vest I ordered and I put it on. It gets the job done, but somehow I feel like a walking road triangle reflector.
Bea does this pose when she knows she'll be photographed. It's her pa-cute pose. I do not know where she got it.
With Jason Lee, son of Dr. Arman and Mia Lee. I've seen this kid bike, and boy can he pedal!
Anyway, we waited for a couple of minutes for the others. When were complete, we took a group photo at the foot of BHS. And then we were off!
Here we are with Zaldy and Tina. It was good the weather cooperated that night. During the day it was cloudy with some rain. 
This is Ariel with his son, Joaquin, on their Bike Friday. Ganda ng bike trailer ni Joaquin. I'd like one for when Bea gets older.
Here is Diane with Jason.
This is Zaldy's son, Zian, on his Peerless Lite.
Here is Al's wife, Dhine, with their daughter Aldheia.
John Buno on his P6R. Love that P-Bar.
Wow Pinays, Ruth and Tina.
Dhine, Ruth, Tina, Bea and honorary woman, Me.
Here we are in Burgos Circle.
From Burgos Circle we rode back to BHS where Bea and I pulled away from the peloton because she was getting sleepy. The group met with some latecomers and continued their ride. Bea and I went back to the car and went home. 

Bea had fun on this ride. She made "mano" to her elders; posed during the picture taking; stood up on her pedals and waved her hands in the air in excitement. We had biked approximately 5 kms. Good job, daughter! Next time, Tour of the Fireflies na!

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

PS: Thanks to Al Castillo and Arman Lee for the photos!


  1. Can I ask what your daughter is riding on your folder?

    1. Hi Nina. She sat on a fabricated steel seat I had somebody make, patterned after a design I saw on a Spanish website. It's called an IT Chair.
