Whirlwind Weekend Part 3: The LRTA Bike On Bike Off Project Launch

It was a light feeling as I entered the LRT station in Gateway Mall, Cubao.  Today was the launch of the BIKE O2 project, something that the DOTC, LRT, Firefly Brigade, Padyak Prokect Foundation, Tiklop Society, and the UP Mountaineers had been working on. 

It was about time that somebody started something as eco-friendly and mass-friendly as this, and all the organizers deserve a big pat on the back for taking this initial step.  When Pia told me that Ironfools Joey and I were joining this morning I was glad to witness the launch of this much-needed endeavour.

Secretary Atienza and Mr. Robles of the LRT were there to help with the event as well.  We rode the last car of the train all the way to Legarda, hopped off with our folding bikes, and rode gleefully to the Rizal Monument in Luneta.  What a success!!! Travel time was 20minutes!!!

Mabuhay ang UPM!!! :)
