Let us give due recognition and gratitude to our cycling friends in Iloilo and the thousands of cyclists who have made their beautiful city the biking capital of the country

Keywords: the region

The Iloilo City Government will interconnect bike lanes all over the metropolis for easier and safer mobility of those biking to work and back home.

Biking has been running as a convenient option amid COVID-19 pandemic which has paralyzed portions of public transport.

Is free bike sharing economically feasible for cities and towns?

Keywords: homes , new homes and condos life

Studies show that creating a km of bollard-protected bike lanes is about $380,000, which may sound like a lot. But in comparison, a one km stretch of a bus rapid transit system comes in at $500,000 and it’s a big jump up to $326 million per km to build a light rapid transit line, such as the Eglinton Cross town LRT. But all of these numbers are a fraction of the $1 billion per km needed to build more subway lines.

Riding bikes (bicycles) in city traffic — how to appropriately respect other people

A lot of peoples ride their bikes like dicks. Daredeviling, riding on the sidewalk, cycling with a speedy sense of entitlement or superiority, blithely cutting off both pedestrians and other people on bikes. For a mode trying to get more traction in a country born and raised on the car – especially up against a large, loud and lethal culture of drivers who hate people on bikes – it’s not a good look.

This isn’t to deny the noble war being fought against the scourge of car culture. I count myself as a soldier in that war. But among soldiers fighting a war, there are codes of honor. As I see it, the same idea applies to the battlefield of our city streets.

Not everyone plays clean in this war. I get it. A lot of operators of cars, trucks and motorcycles are horrible, literally putting people’s lives in danger or even ending them. It’s a dirty battle, sometimes stained in blood. But I never presumed that this harsh reality buys me a license to carry on with a reckless ‘fuck-you’ flair when I’m on my bike.

Against this backdrop and the decades of experience I have riding a bicycle in the city, I’ve learned to maneuver around the metropolis on my two wheels with a simple code: Ride like a gentleman.
