The Sorsogon provincial government touted that the province has been chosen as one of the destination of LBC Ronda Pilipinas, the biggest cycling race in the country.

“Sa pagpasok ng taong 2020, isa ang probinsiya ng Sorsogon sa magiging race destination ng pinakamalaking cycling race sa bansa, ang LBC Ronda Pilipinas 2020,” the province said.

A coordination meeting led by the Provincial Tourism Office and the organizers was held to discuss the role of the province in the said event.

Bobby Gigantone, Head of Provincial Tourism Office, said that the event is an opportunity to show the road infrastructure of Sorsogon.

“Nabanggit ng mga organizer sa pamumuno ni Race Director Jeydee Arcilla sa pagpupulong na napili nila ang Sorsogon sa kadahilanang pasado ito sa standard ng international cycling events sa lawak ng kalsada,” the province said

“Kinokonsidera itong magiging ‘big economic activity’ para sa probinsya dahil sa malaking akomodasyong paghahandaan ng mga hotels at inns. Maliban dito, susubukan din ng mga kalahok ang ibat-ibang pagkaing Sorsoganon mula sa ibat-ibang kainan ng ciudad at mga karatig bayan,” it added.

Ronda Pilipinas 2020 will be launched on February 2020 in Sorsogon City.

“Sa unang stage, dadaanan nila ang mga munisipyo ng Irosin, Bulusan, Barcelona, Prieto Diaz at Bacon District. Samantalang ang Stage 2 ay mula pa rin sa Sorsogon patungong Albay,” said the province.
