- San Juan mayor decided to remove the bollards along Ortigas Ave bike lanes (??? then say it’s to “alleviate” traffic, when it has been like that there ever since??)
- Mxsk apparently removing the Block feature because “it makes no sense” ???
I really hope in the future I don’t have to call or check in advance if the venues I’m going to allow (folding) bikes inside, or at the very least have accessible bike parking within or nearby. 🙏🏻
📷 Day 5: forest #mbsept
This was from first trip to Europe, back in 2022. We rented bikes and rode along the bike paths around Amsterdam to get around. 😊🚲
Also: just wanted to compile all the footage from our community visit to MueangKaen municipality in Chiang Mai, Thailand 😁 had so much fun and really felt the warm hospitality from the community 🥰
So far, since getting my trifold bike, I haven’t booked an Angkas or JoyRide (motor taxi) to go to places by myself.
I’ve yet to see how I manage this when going out in evenings, though. One of the reasons why I opted for mototaxis instead of biking somewhere was time + activities I’ll do there (potentially drinking). 🤔
So far I don’t drink to get drunk though, just to enjoy a glass/bottle or two 😆 and I’ve even gone out late night with the bike, but so far only within 5~7(?) km.
stupid things this week

Happy to see an article covering the experiences of pinay bike commuters 🥰
It also talks about how Pinay Bike Commuter Community started!! My fellow Pinay bike commuters are also mentioned in the article hehe 💖 let’s go #KabaBIKEihan!! 👏🏻
Just wanted to share that I was on GMA’s I-Witness for a few seconds 😆 during one of the rides I joined to go to Pasig River, apparently sir Howie was tagging along wahaha
You can watch the documentary on YouTube: www.youtube.com/live/cY0h… We show up at the near end hehe
I hope the I-Witness documentary covering Pasig River provides people some insight on what the (negative) effects of PAREX could be if the expressway project finishes (since it has some movement but as since stopped? for now??), and I hope it also gets more people to consider how we might make Pasig River be more alive, clean, and benefit the people 😊 #IlogPasiglahin, ika nga hehe
lakad + tao mode today because I hauled a box of empty glass bottles from our house this morning to work for our office’s donation drive. I couldn’t figure out yet how I’d bring both my foldie and the box of bottles by myself so I was at the mercy of traffic and rain today.
Thankfully pwede ako makisabay sa officemate’s Grab that was going the same direction, bumaba ako somewhere along the way and walked na lang para malapit na lang 😆
Poncho mode pa rin since I still brought my bike bag 😁
Traffic was slow enough that I felt safe to whip out my phone while bike commuting and take a few videos of the state of Kalayaan Bridge, the one that links BGC and Ortigas. 😬🚲
A random discussion with a friend on what lunch they’re getting today turned out into an impromptu hangout to eat lunch together then stay at a cafe somewhere to co-work 😆
Thankful for where I’m based, and for both our folding bikes hehe
First time bringing my trifold bike to the office. It fits nicely under the table, if I don’t have my bag attached to it 😆
had to wear the jacket going back home because of a bit of drizzle 😆 also used the rain cover for my front bag this time around!
my hair did not dry properly. 😆
First ride with Candy out on the road!
this trifold + fancy dcb attached bag is giving me the idea that I can just go trifold to all my lakads ah
considering how lighter it is than I expected as well 😆
meet Candy 🥰🚲❤️
It’s a Banian trifold 16" bike! Finally got all my stuff matchy-matchy hehe
Also got traffic cone valve caps from a cyclist friend 😄
One less car.
