Nuvali announced that it will be offering bike clinics for both beginners and intermediate riders at the “Camp N Incubator Trail and Bike Hub” in partnership with Specialized Philippines starting October 29. Camp N will also offer bike tours around the 2,290-hectare Nuvali landscape which will go through the bird sanctuary trails and dirt roads. Nuvali is an Ayala Land sustainable estate that sits in the cities of Sta. Rosa, Calamba and Cabuyao in Laguna and features a diverse mix of residential and commercial developments.
As a premier incubator hub and team-building space, Camp N features thrill-based and skill-based facilities designed to tests one’s physical limits, mental abilities, character, and values. Through its partnership with Specialized Philippines, a 3.4-kilometer winding trail was built within this 6-hectare facility. The trail is filled with dips, bridges, and obstacles that are designed to test and train bikers’ abilities. There is also a dedicated play space for balance bikes where kids can practice balancing on two wheels. Along the trails are pit stops where guests can take a breather and enjoy refreshments.
Beginner bike clinics include courses on basic safety, bike parts, proper riding techniques, shifting, and hurdling obstacles. Intermediate clinics include lessons in riding pumps, hops, and cornering techniques, among others. All bike clinic fees include bike and helmet rentals and a dedicated instructor. Additional equipment such as knee pads, elbow pads, and gloves are available for rent.
“We are encouraging the use of bikes as a mode of transportation and as a leisure activity because Nuvali is all about bringing people closer to nature and enjoying the outdoors which in turn promotes a healthier lifestyle.” said Jennifer Chua, Nuvali marketing manager.
Nuvali has dedicated approximately 50% of its estate to green and open topography which feature a 35-kilometer mountain biking and hiking trail, among others. Dedicated bike lanes are also part of Nuvali’s ecologically- sustainable design, as well as a multi-functional lake and wildlife and bird sanctuary.
Those who wish to test their skills in biking or learn how to ride for the first time can register for the Camp N basic or intermediate bike clinics through World of Outbound at 0977-8422696(CAMPN) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camp N’s thrill-based and skill-based attractions also include the Adventure Tower that houses the biggest rollercoaster zipline in Asia and facilities for wall climbing, rappelling and free fall. There is an obstacle course with three challenge levels and rope-based challenges set high in the air called Aerial Walk. A series of balancing platforms and tightropes called High and Low Rope Initiatives requires the participation of small groups. Beside Camp N is a tree nursery and demo organic farm called Greens & Patches where guests can learn about biodiversity and gardening or relax in the art and meditation center.
“Camp N is a learning destination created for Nuvali’s thriving community. Students can learn more about themselves, understand the environment and lead an active, healthy and sustainable life because after all, these young learners will be the custodians of what this generation will leave behind,” said Mon Jocson, Camp N operations manager.
