Cycling group lends bikes to help frontliners get to work
A group of cyclists in Pampanga found a way to help ease the burden of COVID-19 frontliners during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a report on “Unang Balita,” the Cabalen Bikers lent 25 of their bicycles to help nurses and gas station employees in the province get to work.
Frontliners expressed gratitude to the cycling group for the help, especially with the limited public transportation amid the COVID-19 lockdown.
As many Filipinos turn to biking as an alternative mode of transportation in preparation for the “new normal” set by the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of transport groups and bike advocates are stepping up to also help in ensuring safety for everyone.
Authorities are also taking steps to make bike lanes more permanent along major thoroughfares, including busy highways like EDSA in Metro Manila. — Margaret Claire Layug/LA, GMA News
