Dear Drivers: A Guide for Cyclist-Friendly Driving

Philippine roads present unique challenges for any motorist. Our spectrum of road users range from pedestrians and pedicabs, to motorcycles and tricycles, buses and jeepneys, big and small trucks, and of course, private vehicles of every size and shape. Over the past few decades, we have also seen more and more people taking to bikes for fitness or transport, but the last couple of years have seen an even more dramatic increase in the number of cyclists on the road.

It is in consideration of that last development that we write this guide for you. Because increasing the modal share of bike transport can only be good for everyone. After all, the bicycle is an accessible, sustainable, and efficient mode of transport. And having more people choose the bike as their mode of transport means having less congestion and pollution in our cities.

But people on bikes are also vulnerable road users, which means that they require unique considerations from other people who share the road with them. Of course, building infrastructure to support cycles is a crucial part of keeping cyclists safe, but we can also do much in growing a culture of care for road users who are more vulnerable.

Which is what this guide is about.

We hope that the contents of this manual can help us make cyclists safer on the road. Because we are responsible for one another, whatever vehicle we have chosen to drive.

Yours,

Cycling Matters
