Bike For Peace 2008

This Post is meant for my mountain bike blog, but posted the heading here to lead you there! ^-^

Last Sunday before the Bike for Peace 2008 me and the Escaper had trail ride for a sort of warm up for the next day national event. Sad to say the Escaper can't come with us.

Escaper: Sigh.... With this steep roads and highways I can't endure such long ride, I need more practice!

The bike for peace was organized by Religious leaders and some of the local non-government and government units, and was held at Pikit North Cotabato. The convoy actually started at Notre Dame University Cotabato City and pit stops were at Midsayap and Municipal Hall of Pikit North Cotabato. Good thing the weather that morning was a bit cooperative till the midday, clouds were scattered up in the sky like an umbrella.

The Event lasted for about 6 hours that ended at Pulangi, deeper part of of Pikit. This province of Cotabato is shattered and torned by decades of useless war. Most of the bikers their know the history of the province but still took the risk to join the national event unpaid or uncompensated for only one reason, "PEACE"

Bikers used to shout peace to every locals that called our attention as we took their attention when our convoy of almost 300 bikers (far from 600 of the last years event - maybe because of the risk and previous event experience) pass by their houses and establishments!
