Biking: Is Life in the New Normal Better on Two Wheels?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Ready na ba bikes ninyo? The so called new normal during the community quarantine challenges us to be resourceful in our commuting to our work or business and vice versa.

Motor o bisikleta in the new normal is the best option?

ECQ, MECQ, GCQ, Matira matibay Q are all mere terms.

Ang bottom line, @covid19 has not left and the curve has far from flattened.

It is impossible to keep social distancing in a jeepney a bus or MRT at ang tanong, makakasakay ka kaya?

Riding is safe. Riding is the new alternative, may motor man o di padyak. Consider natin.

Mas ok bisikleta kaysa motor. May exercise ka na to get fit and healthy, less pollution pa. Di ka pa gagastos sa gas na laging tumataas ang presyo.

A good alternative is to use folding bikes so we could easily bring it inside our offices. Portable, light and cool to have than those bulky mountain or sports bikes.

Though baka hindi natin kayanin Ang makalayong destinations whether going to or from work or home....or other locations for errands like shopping or buying food from restaurants. Bicycles may be only good for short distances unless you've been biking all your life.

However, is our health and physical capability enough to endure the harsh nature - heat, rain, etc, plus the strenuous kilometers to reach our everyday destinations?

There has already been stories or news of people collapsing and even dying due to their biking attempts. Are we ready to face the challenge?

Pinag-iinitan ni Gordon ang mga nakamotor, ngayon na puro checkpoint buong bansa, nakita na police visibility ang sagot sa krimen, hindi ang doble plaka o mataas na penalty, mabuti kung lahat tulad ng mayaman na afford ang kotse.

We are appealing po na payagan ang backride sa motor..  especially if living in the same house. As long as they provide ids with same address. Senseless na ayaw payagan kung magkasama naman sa bahay.

Apart from the social distancing guidelines, ang isinasaalang-alang po natin ay ang ating enforcement. Ilang libo po ang motor sa kalsada. Hindi po kakayanin ng mga enforcers natin na manu-manong i-check isa-isa ang mga naka-motor para lang mapatunayan kung magkasama ba sa bahay o magkamag-anak ‘yan. Mahirap ding i-distinguish kung habal-habal ‘yan o nagpapanggap lamang na mag-asawa o magkasama sa bahay. It will be an additional burden to the police and the enforcers, when their primary responsibility is to ensure public health and safety, and that only authorized persons will be allowed to go out.

Kung papayagan din ang backride, syempre manganganak na naman po ‘yan ng ibang exemption at katanungan. Sasabihin ng mga sumasakay sa jeep, bakit pagbabawalan silang magkakatabi eh pinapayagan naman ang magkatabi sa motor. Ganon din sa mga private vehicles, pati sa mga bus o sa mga tren. Sasabihin nila pwede silang magkatabi kasi magkasama naman sila sa bahay. Mawawalan po ng order at uniformity ang ating rules.

Sana maintindihan rin natin yung side ng mga nag-i-implement ng batas.

Kung manu manong pag check lang naman po ang pinag-uusapan, ano po ba pinagkaiba ng bilang ng mga ng momotor sa private car sa mga public transpo. C

Come on! Isasaalang-alang ba namin kapakanan ng aming pamilya na mag commute! Di hamak na mas safe sila kung sa amin sila sasakay.. Kaligtasan lang po ng aming pamilya ang aming iniisip.! Di po kasi namin maintindihan e magkakasama kami sa loob ng bahay pero bakit kapag sasakay na kami sa motor e bawal hindi po ba? Sana magtulungan tayo sana iniisip niyo din kaming simpleng mga mamayan simpleng riders ng bayang na ito.. Na tanging motorsiklo lang po ang aming transportasyon upang makapasok sa trabaho.. Kaligtasan lang po ng pamilya at kaanak namin ang iniisip namin..salamat po!

Just a few realizations:

- It is still very unsafe to ride within NCR
- Disrespectful vehicle drivers are a threat to new bikers
- Very few or no bike lanes.

There's a lot of working out to do before we could really claim that "biking to work is the new normal."

NO. Biking to work is a risk that most of us just have to take in order to survive. We are the lower-middle class and low income employees, just trying to cope up with the changes brought about by this pandemic ☹ Patapangan na lang, matira matibay.
