I want to promote the use of folding bikes as a means of transportation here in the Philippines. This blog is meant to share my experiences as a folding bike user. I chose a Brompton for its classic style and compact fold, but other brands like Dahon, Strida, Bike Friday, Flamingo and Peerless produce good foldies as well.
When my work takes me to Makati, and the weather cooperates, I try my best to commute by bike--which is what I did today. I had a meeting in the Central Business District, and the sky was blue.
Coding rin kasi yung kotse. So I drove to Maga before 7am. Parked the car and unfolded my Brompton. From there, wearing my white short sleeve barong and black dress pants, I biked to the CBD. I passed through Brgy. Bangkal, crossed Osmena Highway via a pedestrian overpass, then continued to Pasong Tamo and turned right on Pasay Road.
I arrived at the Asian Institute of Management after biking for just 15 minutes. Folded my bike, and went up to my meeting. Probably saved P100 in parking fees. Ayos!
