Life insurance company Pru Life UK, who organizes the hugely popular Prudential Ride London gran fondo, is set to launch another edition of its PRURide Philippines event for more than 3,000 cyclists on March 15, 2020 in Pampanga.
Not only will thousands of gran fondo riders participate, but also local and international professional riders who will race in a 5-day UCI stage race.
The 100km gran fondo will start in the Clark Freeport Zone and follow the same route taken by the professional cyclists. On picturesque and challenging new roads built for the 2019 South East Asian Games, riders will head to New Clark City which was built specifically for the SEA Games, before returning to the finish in Clark Freeport Zone.
The first PRURide, Prudential Ride London, was launched in 2013 to promote cycling as an alternative ‘green” mode of transportation while helping improve the health and wellness of participants. Now, up to 25,000 riders participate in Prudential Ride London annually.
In addition to Prudential Ride London and PRURide Philippines, Pru Life UK supports other gran fondo cycling events around the world, including PRURide Accra (Ghana), PRURide Indonesia and PruRide Lusaka (Zambia).
