Bikers plant trees, clean seacoast

SAN JUAN, Ilocos Sur – More than 200 bikers simultaneously raced to Barangays Surngit and Solotsolot in this town to plant mangrove trees and clean the seacoast in an activity dubbed as “2018 Bike for a Cause” sponsored by the English Department of San Juan National High School in this town, early morning of March 17, 2018.

Head Teacher Mercedes Viloria said some 163 students, teachers and scores of bike-enthusiasts headed by Sangguniang Bayan Member Gem Lucero spearheaded the fun-bike activity. The Lapog Cycling Association also joined.

The bikers started at the town gym, proceeded west to Barangays Cabanglutan, Sunggiam, Solotsolot and Surngit, then made a U-turn to the coastal road just before Barangay Dardarat.

“It was an activity to promote biking which is good for the environment and health,” Viloria said.  (Edward B. Antonio)
