What if our city could feel more like an exciting weekend?
Sabi ni Julia Nebrija Nebrija sa #99ULocalMNL, we are proud to be Filipinos but how often do we say “I love Manila”? Para naman maiba, let’s re(re)Discover beauty and poetry on a bamboo bike within our nation’s capital.

“In behalf of the Philippine Climate Pilgrims, maraming maraming salamat sa inyong suporta at pakikiisa. Thank you for your solidarity.
Keep pedalling. Connect with people. Share your stories. Listen to stories. Discover the truth, the beauty and the ugly. The bike is a tool, a tool for progress, for healing, for change. You only have to take that first pedal, that one move, to create that ripple of change you want. And that starts with you. Mabuhay kayong lahat! Cheers!”
