THE Marikina City Government recognized its residents who recently gave honor to the city in the area of cycling. The recognition was presented during a flag-raising ceremony on Tuesday at the Freedom Park to Marikina Flip Riders Dexter Sanchez (30-39 Years Old Category), Virgo Senocbit (20-29 Years Old Category), Sherwin Pedral (16-19 Years Old Category), and Joseph Joaquin (15 Years Old and Below Category). They won the championship titles in their respective categories during the Dual Cross Competition recently held in Malolos City. Mayor Del De Guzman said that aside from the trophy and cash prize won by the four, they also prove that the cycling culture in the city is flourishing. Marikina is also known as the “bike capital” in the country after it established at least 73 kilometers of interconnected lanes for bikes.
