Art and Bike Experience

Cycling is an art form.
Building a bicycle is art. There are no rules, just norms.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
All these one liners lead to how art and cycling are co-related to each other. Artists and bikers agree on one thing: Art and Biking are both FUN!

On Saturday, October 24, 2015, there will be a bike ride touring participating museums in Metro Manila.
