        More celebrities and government officials are now joining the ranks of motorcycle riders who not only want to be relieved of stress but also enjoy the camaraderie in group rides.

        Recently, a few prominent personalities found themselves deeply rooted in motorcycling after signing up for the Philippine National Police-Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) Executive Motorcycle Riding Course (EMRC). The PNP offers the highly specialized riding training to individuals who support its advocacy on road safety.

        According to an HPG official, an individual earns the title of Master Rider after finishing the 5,000-km official ride with fellow members. Simply put, the training requires a lot of saddle time. But before you can earn this badge, the rider must first undergo the HPG Executive Motorcycle Riding Course (EMRC), which usually takes at least a month.

        “The HPG’s goal of promoting responsible motorcycle riding and road safety awareness nationwide gains significant mileage with the selfless support of our partners who happen to be fellow passionate motorcycle riders,” says Tagum.

        The HPG Public Information Office (PIO) shared photos of the ceremony.

        Uson recently leveled up from riding a 500cc Honda Rebel cruiser to the much bigger BMW F750 GS 40 Years GS edition. Last February, Pialago graduated from riding training. For his part, Legaspi has tried to get his twins Mavy and Cassy into riding.
