Bicycles are one of the main modes of transportation today—one of the remarkable shifts when the pandemic started. Since public transportation in the country has been limited, workers from industries that pursued operation amidst the lockdown resorted to using bike going to and from work.
Some also invested in different types of bicycles like mountain bike or electric bike for recreational purposes, grabbing the opportunity of cycling in groups on empty roads and highways. Transitioning to the new normal also meant many people engaging in cycling because of its physical health benefits.
Having bicycles had also been a great alternative for residents living in strategically located homes, like Lessandra communities, as the short distances from establishments and workplaces allow them to use bicycles even with the limited transportation. In Lessandra Baliwag in Bulacan, a community offering affordable house and lots, there are biker-friendly roads and places that cyclists can ride through, whether it may be for transportation purposes or purely for leisure.

Cyclists used to visit the Paligue Candaba Road because of the two airplanes placed on the side of the road, a great landmark to showcase, especially for traveling cyclists. Since the airplanes were removed, the place became a long night market where many small business owners put their businesses beside the road. Because of this, the Paligue Candaba Road remained a great stopover for cyclists, as there are mini food hubs like milk tea and coffee shops, Korean BBQ places, and street food stalls along the road.
