The Iloilo Bike Festival started in 2014, aims to promote biking as a mode of transportation. Since then, it has been an annual event centered on promoting biking as a healthy lifestyle – and showcasing the city’s biking initiatives, workability of bike lanes, and biking ordinances making Iloilo City one of the safest and most bike-friendly cities.
“Biking promotes camaraderie. Biking does not help in promoting a healthy lifestyle but also develops strong friendships. In Iloilo City, many have shifted to biking as an option for mobility naming us at the Most Bike-Friendly City in the PhilBike Awards,” Treñas states.
It may be recalled that Iloilo City was hailed ‘most bike-friendly city’ by the PhilBike Awards during the 2018 PhilBike Expo held at the World Trade Center Manila. The award was accepted by Wilfredo Sy Jr., Director of the Iloilo Bike Festival for this year and one of the prime movers of the Iloilo biking community.
