JUST in time for the World Bicycle Day, NLEX Corporation marked another successful fitness program after the execution of LAKBIKE NA! 365 Cycle.

LAKBIKE NA! 365 Cycle is a virtual sports event joined by a hundred participants from all over the country.

Due to the pandemic restrictions, the event was done individually via the app Stampede: Races. The bikers were given one full month to complete a 365-km distance in their own pace and time.
