Bicycling is a great hobby. According to Wikipedia, bicycles were introduced in the 19th century in Europe and now number more than a billion worldwide, twice as many as automobiles.They are the principal means of transportation in many regions. They also provide a popular form of recreation, and have been adapted for such uses as children’s toys, general fitness, military and police applications, courier services and bicycle racing.
Bicycle has been a part of my life since I was 10 years old , then a grade school student, until now it gives me self-satisfaction and somehow makes me a healthier individual as I mature in age.
That’s why when I heard that there is a group of students in UP who makes biking their mode of transportation and wants to promote it by having an organized event of runners and bikers, I immediately volunteered myself. They want the people around their place to know and acknowledge the things that they are doing is for the sake of their country and even the next younger generation who will make our lives more comfortable and free from any dangers and with some bad and fictitious people.
It was a very sunny afternoon when biking starts and I knew that we will be passing by some major streets in the city since we are on UP Diliman , will be going through Commonwealth Avenue and will be passing through Fairview and round we go back to our destination with a total of 25 km. I presume that bike lanes is not enough for this types of road because many of our motorist are not that cautious and courteous when it comes to road safety and even just by giving some considerations even to this event per se. I personally would like to appeal that there should be policeman assigned per area so that those who will tend to do wrong will be at least apprehended.
And for a little while it is good that we experience some drizzles of rain just to remind those who will pass through this area will need extra caution and coats so that you may be in your proper destinations sound and safe. It will be a little bit obvious that this will be a part of the things that riders will be going through and will be just hoping that all will be properly been addressed and re considered.
And we’re glad that we all finished and have conquer the road though I drifted a bit from the group as I rest and have some drinks and snacks for a while . But I happen to go back and finish the race without any doubt of stopping and not going through it. I experience some untoward things such as hitting a stone in the hi-way , trying to go to the bike lanes where its too far from the end and having some drivers that is too hard to give a chance for a biker to pass through.
Shift to a Greener alternatives is good but one thing I encourage is to have proper coordination with authorities so that bad things wont happen to any of the students here in UP Diliman
