Cebuanos are reclaiming the roads, and day or night, we see people biking to school or work and others even for exercise and recreation. As such, it is imperative that we respect them the same way we want to be respected when we’re on the road – may we be drivers or pedestrians. Our bike culture is thriving and dynamic, contributing to a healthy and sustainable planet that makes our future spirited and alive instead of the impending doom that we are likely to end up in if we continue our materialistic, consumeristic and “bahala na” lifestyle.
People waste so much time and energy getting worked up over depression, anxiety, materialism and consumerism, and the problems that they know of revolve merely around themselves when in fact the world is facing such a horrible reality. Time spent sipping coffee or tea at a shop acknowledged only because of its name is better spent contributing to the movement against climate change, and energy drained in scouring shops for the right clothes, gadgets and shoes if directed to the right cause can lead to an outpouring of talents that will bring forth inspiration, productivity and creativity.
