GMA News TV to air new Motorcycle Show “Ride PH”

Remember TV documentary Motorcycle Diaries? Yes, the TV show program hosted by veteran broadcaster and motorcycle enthusiast Jay Taruc which last for 5 years, will have a sort of replacement with the announcement of their latest weekly tele-magazine show focused on all things about motorcycle, Ride PH.

What to expect from Ride PH? Well, according to our good friend Jay, Ride PH is a first of its kind on free-to-air Philippine television featuring top trending topics on the Philippine motorcycling scene as well as serious issues confronting riders and road users.

The 30-minute TV show Ride PH, which airs every Sunday 10 pm at GMA News TV, is produced by Jay Taruc himself. Some of the show segments include: Rider’s Profile and My Ride, which feature riders and their exceptional love affair with their bikes; Bike Tribes, which focuses on biker’s group experiences; Motor Trends, the latest motorcycle products, models and services in the market ; and Motor Issues, which dwells on relevant issues concerning motorcycle riding. 


The TV Show also promotes moto-tourism with Bike Stops and Bike Routes which feature hangouts and routes around the country. Best of all, Ride Ph advocates safety riding and aims to be a platform for educating the riding public about road safety. Guidelines and tips on road safety will be the focus of Bike Hacks and Rider E.R (Education on the Road).

Ride PH is directed by Raymund Generoso, a TV director and producer, creative director and documentary filmmaker. He has many hats on his head from being and artist to musician, Raymund is a major proponent of a television “think-tank” / “concepts group” which was created to come up with fresh and new concepts for television shows and program segments.

Here’s the short teaser of the show:

Congrats Jay and we hope to see more of Ride PH!!!
