Great COVID story. This was largely done to CROW standards.

That's pretty awesome. I hope they're able to expand it.

Yeah, I almost fell for it lol.
Have been considering a trip to either Malaysia or the Philippines. That article about the bike lanes just about tipped it in favor of Manila before cubewheels’ post.
Currently back towards Malaysia if the plans for reopening hold up...

We spent the same amount of money building highways and bridges connecting islands in Palau for our missile launchers.

They can't even afford gas to drive to their new capitol building that looks like Americas.

Netherlands Pon Holdings bought Schwinn, Cannondale, Mongoose, etc from Canada's Dorel. You betcha they want bicycle use expanded so they can sell more bikes. Guess where they are moving their Chinese Schwinn, Mongoose, Cannondale factories to? Moneys on Philippines
