10 Important Words and Phrases You Should Know To Better Understand and Enjoy the Tour of the Fireflies

9. Firefly Flight Training

For those who have been participating in the Tour for several editions now, you may be wondering how we are able to bring together thousands of bikers in one day, in one place, with one thought in mind – to have fun, and then to help the environment recover and help preserve it for future generations. One way for us to realize this goal is to look for future members of the Firefly Brigade who would have the same fervor as we have in caring for the environment. It is through the FFT that we try to incubate members who would have the Firefly Spirit of having fun between their legs and at the same time, being responsible for the environment not just as armchair environmentalist but as hands on advocates.

Why is this important to know?

Walang forever di ba? So then, in order to make sure that there are future generations of Parplays who will continue the work of the present crop of super dedicated Parplay volunteers, we give people the opportunity, nay, the privilege of serving the cycling community in particular and the whole world in general, by participating and contributing to the realization of our mission, vision and advocacies. The FFT is your gateway to a world full of real adventures not only in cycling but also to helping others realize their dreams.

 

 

10. Advocacy Ride/Fun Ride

Our monthly Critical Mass Ride and our annual Tour of the Fireflies are perfect examples of an advocacy ride and fun ride combined into one. They are our way of showing how the little things we do as individuals can overflow to world class, life changing events that can influence other nations to do the same.

Why is this important to know?

While no two rides are exactly the same in terms of number of participants and theme of the month, all our advocacy/fun rides are meant to give bikers an experience they will long cherish in life. We like to think that we are establishing a legacy that next generation Filipino bikers will understand and try to continue and perpetuate as long as they can. It is important not only to know what we do but also have the will to do the same.

Words can only convey as much that people can understand and relate with on a deeper level. They are as limited as our understanding of the concepts behind them. However, words are tools that can be used to introduce and implant the seed of interest and can, in time bloom into fruition if nurtured properly and given enough loving care. With this year’s Tour of the Fireflies, we hope to do this and inspire change in all its participants.
