It was in the middle of a three hour car ride from Minglanilla on my way back to Mandaue when I realized that my days were being ruined by hours and hours of wasted time in the car. I couldn’t stand it anymore. Then I fondly remembered a trip to Copenhagen. Everyone was riding a bike. But I thought that there’s no way that would work in Cebu.

Fast forward to two years later, my vehicle of choice is a bicycle. There’s so much good from commuting via bicycle. I can’t talk about it enough. So I realized it would be good to talk to another person who has been doing the same thing for much longer than me. It also helps that he was one of the pioneers of the Fixed Gear community in Cebu, had a hand in the Road Revolution in 2011, and has been preaching the bike as a commute for a while. I talked to Rye Kido.

In this episode, we talk about the fixed gear community, his journey to cycling (there were girls involved), the state of commuting in Cebu, and musings about possible solutions.
