Weekly night rides promote unity among Cebu cyclists

CYCLISTS in Cebu City have been clamoring for the establishment of bike lanes to ensure the safety of those who rely on bicycles as their main mode of transportation.

As more and more people consider climate change as a threat, cyclists found another reason to promote the use of bicycles—as a transportation alternative that does not generate greenhouse gases, which cause global warming and climate change.

The entry of surplus bicycles from Japan and China have leveled the playing field somewhat. These days, one can own a folding bike for at least P2,000.

The growing popularity of folding bikes led to the creation of the Tindak Bisdak Cebu Folding Bike Society.

Founded by Jay Garganera in 2010, the Tindak Bisdak Cebu Folding Bike Society has a growing membership, which includes parents and their children.

The group promotes fellowship by conducting night rides around Cebu City every Friday. In the aftermath of the magnitude 7.2 earthquake on Oct. 15, 2013, some members of the group rode their bikes to deliver relief assistance to affected villages in Bohol. (LAP)
