Tour of the Fireflies Flaker

I'm a Tour of the Fireflies Flaker. I was supposed to go today but backed out last night after I arrived from the Cecon 24-Hour Mountain Bike Race at around 11:15 in the evening. I figured going through the Metro at this heat is not worth it.

This is the 8th year of this annual earth day event. With participants numbering over five thousand, the Tour of the Fireflies is the biggest cycling gathering in the country. It aims to promote the use of the bicycle as a transportation alternative to stop vehicle emissions from further polluting our air.

Joining one of their Marshal Rides a few weeks back, this year's Tour will start at the Tiendesitas compound and will go to Ortigas Avenue, Gilmore, E. Rodriguez, Espana, Intramuros, Roxas Boulevard, the CCP Complex, Macapagal Avenue, EDSA, South Super Highway, Buendia, Makati Avenue, Mandaluyong Rotunda, Nueve de Pebrero, Shaw Boulevard, EDSA, Ortigas Avenue and back to Tiendesitas.
