MANILA, Philippines - The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) opened a bicycle lane along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City yesterday.

MMDA chairman Francis Tolentino, Mayor Herbert Bautista and other cyclists rode along the 2.92-kilometer (km) lane that stretched from the University Avenue at the entrance of the University of the Philippines to Tandang Sora.

“We wanted to have bike lanes in the roads of Commonwealth to further promote the healthy practice of using bicycles as everyday means of transportation,” Tolentino said.

The MMDA has created a 4.58-km bicycle lane from the Santolan Light Rail Transit (LRT) 2 station to Imelda Avenue in Marikina City; a 1.8-km lane from the Remedios Circle up to the Paraiso ng Batang Maynila Park on M. Adriatico street in Manila, and a 550-meter lane from Quirino Avenue up to the Cultural Center of the Philippines along Roxas Boulevard.
