Metro Manila Mayors Vow To Give Up Their Cars In Favor Of Bicycles!

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – A group consisting of Metro Manila mayors and officials of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority recently visited The Netherlands for a study tour on sustainable development practices, including cycling as a form of citizen transport and mobility.

If there’s anything sustainable the Dutch are known for, it is cycling. And there’s no better place to learn about it other than Amsterdam.

To prove that their trip is not purely vacation or junket, the mayors of MMDA officials vowed that when they return to the Philippines, they will all give up their luxury cars in favor of bicycles.

“We have to set the example for development projects we implement,” said San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora. Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte seconded the motion.

Metro Manilans should expect a marked improvement in traffic when the vacationers return to the country.
