Exploring Amadeo: Spyder Coffee Ride
Spyder Philippines held its first ever Spyder Coffee Ride, an exploration of the town of Amadeo in Cavite, colloquially known as the Coffee Capital of the Philippines.
Over 200 riders converged at the Spyder Headquarters in Pasig City for a leisurely cruise through the streets of Metro Manila under cloudy skies. Despite the not-so-ideal weather, everyone arrived in Amadeo without incident due to the effective marshaling techniques of Code R Seals.
Upon entry to the event pavilion of Patio Buendia, riders were greeted with the aromatic and rich scents of Amadeo’s home-grown, freshly brewed coffee. The pursuit of quality local coffee, the second most consumed beverage in the country, was a major factor in the choice of destination for the morning ride. Complimented by tasty bread from Gardenia, one of the sponsors of the Ride, the enthusiasts present were in for a treat.
Mr. Martin Misa, head of the Rider Guardians Community, gave a brief inspirational message about promoting kindness on the road as a means towards road safety. An Impromptu Sing Off occurred which brought out the hidden talents of many of the riders, who belted out tunes to the enjoyment of all present. The winner of the Sing Off took home a portable karaoke and amplifier from Marvin’s Karaoke.
One of the highlights of the event was the Dirt Gymkhana, where the bikers got to test their technical riding skills using the TVS bikes. It was impressive seeing them challenge their maneuverability as well as an avenue to hone their skills.
Several premium items were raffled off including, but not limited to: three (3) pairs of CST tires, HANC 3D helmet holders and keychains, MT helmets and our very own Spyder eyewear pieces and motorcycle helmets. The grand prize was the versatile Spyder Jacket.
Although the Spyder Coffee Ride was an event open to users of all motorcycle helmet brands, a special VS1 Refresh Anti-Bacterial Moto Cleaning Agent was given to all those who came in their Spyder helmets. Each participant went home with a limited edition Spyder leg bag and event stickers from JM Mirasol.
