Yahoo News Philippines had this news to share:

Quezon City has been chosen to host the halfway stop program in the launching of the first ever National Bicycle Day on Sunday November 23.

The activity is geared towards promoting the use of bicycles as a regular means of transportation with San Juan City, Manila, Navotas, Malabon City, Caloocan City, Marikina City and Pasig City forming the north route of the bike parade along with Quezon City.

Pretty exciting stuff! Being of Filipino decent, I have yet to visit the Philippines. From what I can gather from online and from relatives, cycling infrastructure is not the greatest in the archipelago. News like this is pretty exciting and I am trying to follow it. You can read the article here. It’s easy to take the cycling facilities we have here for granted, even though it is a tough go in some places. Someday, if I ever get to visit the birthplace of my parents, I hope to be able to see from a bicycle.
