THE Rotary Club of Angeles Skytown has aired support to government program that promotes "bike to work" amid the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic.

This month, RC Angeles Skytown president Edna Eufemio said their club is launching its own version of the "bike to work" project.

"Heeding the call to help support the advocacy to use more bikes on the road, especially amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the Rotary Club of Angeles Skytown is launching the Bike to Work Project this July 2020," Eufemio said.

She added that this is an extension of the club's Bike to School Project.

RC Angeles Skytown started this project during the Pampanga Bike Adventure Tour event in December 2018, where around 20 bikes have been donated to students with long commutes to school.

This year, the club intends to donate bikes to qualified workers, frontliners or deserving employees, according to Eufemio.

The club head also urged local government units in Pampanga to support the calls from the national government and bikers' groups to establish dedicated and protected bike lanes for the bike commuters.
