Paholio said the first of the two bikefests will be the Kadayaw-Juan Davao Road Bike Challenge that will fire off on August 18 at the SM City Davao.
The bike race co-presented by Juan Trading Corporation will feature the 140-kilometer course that is open to the open elite team and the open elite, executive and midget individual categories.
Cash prizes, trophies, and medals await the winners in each category.
"This is a developmental event initiated by Philcycling to discover potential cyclists that will represent Davao City in national and international competitions," Paholio said.
Registration is pegged at P350 inclusive of jersey, packed lunch and bottled water. For registration contact Paholio at (0999)368-5005.
