DECLARATION OF SUPPORT
(PLEASE READ BEFORE SUBMITTING)
I fully support the petition to the Office of the President by the National Bicycle Organization (NBO) together with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), thru the Environment Management Bureau (EMB) to proclaim the month of November as National Bicycle Month and Every Fourth Sunday of November thereafter as National Bicycle Day.
I believe that if our cities were transformed into a bicycle centered/non-motorized transportation centered society, the citizens especially the workforce would be happier, healthier, more social towards each other, and less stressed because they would be bike commuting on safer roads while not having to deal with traffic issues and the economy would boom due to the billions saved annually.
This initiative will address, if not solve pressing issues on vehicle congestion, transportation, air pollution and the deteriorating health, productivity and well-being of the citizens that commute daily to work.
I greatly appreciate the move of the National Bicycle Organization and the DENR-EMB for raising the urgency to address these current urban problems to the Office of the President. Inspired by the many model cities around the world looking into more environmentally sustainable transportation (EST) solutions which also help boost the economy.
