With limitations on public transportation especially at the start of the community quarantine, more and more people have started to get into biking. Bicycles are a dependable mode of transportation, provide a great workout, and let you keep your distance on our virus-stricken streets.
If you’re still trying to catch up on the trend, but you’ve never really learned how to ride a bike, you can take one or two riding lessons with the National Bicycle Organization (NBO) at the open parking space of Robinsons Place Manila every Saturday and Sunday, from 9am to 7pm. Adults are allowed, we won’t judge.
NBO advocates for a “bicycle-friendly Philippines” by promoting bikes as an “alternative mode of transportation and lifestyle.” Using the two-wheeler for short trips and errands will minimize your carbon footprint, help reduce air pollution, and decongest the roads.
The group also holds bike lessons at 31st Street beside Track 30th Park, Bonifacio Global City, every Sunday from 9am to 5pm; and along Maginhawa Street in Quezon City daily, from 7am to 11am. To register for bike lessons, you just need to fill out the online form on NBO’s website. A two-hour session costs only at P300, and you don’t have to bring your own bicycle. According to NBO, it takes only about 30 minutes to learn how to ride a bike.
NBO Bike Lessons is at 6/F Robinsons Place Manila, Pedro Gil Street, Manila City. For more information, visit NBO Bike Lessons’ website.
