CSF Cycling Caravan attracts thousands of cyclists

Thousands of cyclists took to the downtown streets of the City of San Fernando during the 2017 Cycling Caravan held over the weekend.

For this year, the caravan covered a 47-kilometer route from Consunji Street, in front of City Hall, up to the Heroes Hall in Brgy. San Juan.

Thousands of cyclists join this year’s caravan held over the weekend as part of the the celebration of Kaganapan 2017.

Dubbed ‘Padyak para sa Kalusugan at Kalikasan’, Mayor Edwin ‘EdSa’ Santiago stressed that the annual activity aims to promote good health and a greener environment through biking.

Last year, the city launched its first phase of bicycle lanes which are accessible along the stretch of Lazatin Boulevard.

“Cycling is a cheap yet efficient mean of transport. Aside from the fact that it improves one’s overall fitness level, it can also help reduce traffic congestion and minimize air pollution,” added Mayor EdSa.

Also present during the caravan were Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, Community Affairs Division Head Engr. Jose Diaz and Kaganapan 2017 Chairperson Robbie Hizon.
