Default back-to-school, BIKE-to-school

Dumadami na pala ang bike commuters, sana pati sa mga schools, at all age levels.
Definitely not for everyone, everyday. But probably okay for some people, some days of the week.

How popular is biking in your college or high school during school days? Which schools are bike-friendly? Which ones have bike parking? We saw the Diliman bike racks and bike lanes, siguro madami din sa iba pang schools, specially those campuses outside our big cities.

Many elementary schools in Europe and a few other areas teach basic riding skills to kids, as a kind of PE just like some schools teach basic swimming. Are there similar school-based bike clinics for kids here? Any bicycle clubs?

Malabo yata sa elementary kids dito: dangerous routes (but the community can design safe cycling routes), big school bags (but schools can provide/lease lockers to students so not all books need to be carried home everyday), unpredictable weather... but still a nice dream, and perhaps still feasible for those living in rural areas and bike-friendly subdivisions.

Nice start, Tina! http://www.ilovetoridemybicycle.com/?p=620
We hope the bike4u foundation is still active: http://www.bike4u.org/

Something to dream about, bike parking at a big high school in Assen, Netherlands (try zooming in the photos for impressive panoramas):

i'm still a student, i'm studying in PSBA-QC. i'm thinking of bike commuting. although i'm still thinking about it, but it will save me something like php1000 a month, which will be used on my future upgrades.

Im a high school student here in the province of Isabela. I dont really commute to school during school days when there are classes since its not allowed in our school. But i do during weekends when we got some projects to do in or outside the school, It really helps not only in exercising but also helps me save allowance. This june im going to college and im looking forward to bring my bike with me in manila, I would love to commute with my bike but seems very complicated since i dont know routes in manila yet. Well maybe ill do someday when i meet someone here who is also a biker and tour me around the city.

UST during my college years, bike commute ako pag nagtitipid

uso ang nakawan ng bike that time pero ang secret ay tropahin ang mga guards dahil may mga bike din sila... safe siya sa umaga

I park it near our tambayan para pagdating ng hapon, kahit may class pa ko, may mga titingin ng mga tropa. safe naman siya sa hapon.

UST today, bike friendly na. may mga bike racks na infront of the buildings
to double the safety, tropahin pa din ang mga guards.



O.T.: pag naisipang mag-cut or may biglaang suspension ng classes, bike agad to MOA or Antipolo or UP para sa quickie tapos balik ng tambayan para tumambay. heheheh

maganda yan...

kaya lang parang mahirap i-encourage ang isang eskwelahan mismo ang magpa-umpisa ng programang ganyan... lalo na at kumikita sila dahil kasama yata ang parking fee sa miscellaneous fees tsaka kelangang bumili ka pa ng school sticker para makapag park ka sa loob ng eskwelahan... na dagdag gastos pa sa mga babayarin...

Just finished the 2nd day of my bike to school "advocacy." I hope to continue it throughout the whole semester. Because of this I had to break my own rule of not wearing shorts in public.

Iba pala ang pakiramdam kapag may kasabay na babaeng cute na mukhang masungit. Sana mag-helmet naman siya kahit na ba Japanese bike ang gamit niya.

Bakit naman daw bawal? You can write the school officials about this ban, perhaps they just need some lessons on the virtues of cycling. Graduate ka na pala, baka naman makinig sila sa mga alumni nila, para sa mga naiwan pa doon.

To students of schools with similar bicycle bans, you have the entire PMTB community to support you in your struggle. Real bicycle culture begins in the local communities, and schools are natural leaders in any community. We need that critical mass of regular bike commuters to get things rolling...

try mo mag bike pag weekends yung walang pasok para ma gamay mo yung daan without time pressure.. pag nagawa mo 3 times for sure confident at estimated mo na ang 4th ride mo.. tapos try mo paalam ulit sabihin mo yung good news sa parents mo na makakatipid ka na sa allowance mo hehe

Bike to School ni Oscar Oida - Brigada.
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=2&theater

Sana dumami pa sila, ang bisikleta ay para sa lahat...
... tungo sa makabuluhang kultura ng pagpadyak ng sambayanan!

If the local governments build the safe bikepaths, the bikers will come...

During my high school days, I always do bike to school so pde na rin ako hindi mag dala ng pera.

Now my college days, regular classes I do bike to our church para mag park para makatipid sa commute. ntsp class, bike to school na cainta to UE Recto pag hindi tinamad at mainit.
