HARI NG AHON

HARI NG AHON | OCTOBER 09, 2022 

Bike Challenge Series

Baguio City is nestled almost 1500 meters above sea level.  This is the reason why it is usually taunted as the killer lap in most national road bike races since biking towards the city would always mean several kilometers of unforgiving climbs.

Hari ng Ahon bike challenge series is a bicycle sporting event organized by GODSpeed Sports and Events Solutions in partnership with the local government unit of Baguio City.

It is slated to be held as a four leg bike race along the different routes going to Baguio City from its neighboring towns.  The first of this series is the Kennon Road leg while the succeeding stages of the race are planned to be held along Ambuclao Road, Naguilian Road and Asin Road.
