CYCLING IS THE NEW NORM: MAKATI LAUNCHES BIKE & DINE, INITIATES MOOVR BIKE RENTALS
Aiming to accommodate and provide better lifestyle destination for the biking community, as well as, encouraging more people to consider biking as an alternative transportation option, Ayala Land, Inc. and MaCEA initiated a Bike & Dine program and bike rentals via the Moovr app on October 29 and November 4, respectively. The Bike & Dine racks were installed at the Makati Al Fresco parklets; three racks along Esteban St. in front of Planters Products building and two racks along Rada St. in front of Cy Land building. These racks allow the cyclists to dine without the need to dismount from their bikes.
Make It Makati also provided some gifts from Yardstick Coffee and Wildflour for the first 50 participating bikers during the launch.
In addition, bike rentals were also made possible. The bike rental service is currently available at 11 spots within MCBD, namely, Ayala Triangle Gardens, HV Dela Costa corner Tordesillas and corner Valero, Washington Sycip Park, Legazpi Active Park, Palm Promenade Park, Café Mentore at Palm Drive, 6750 Steel Car Park, 6750 building, Glorietta 4 Park and Ayala Center MRT Station. By downloading the Moovr app, signing up and scanning the QR code, Makatizens can start renting a bike at Php 20.00 for 15 minutes, available 24/7.
Also, the launching was attended by Sheilla Aguilar (Ayala Land Project Development Head for Makati), Chrissy Roa (Marketing Head of Ayala Land Estates), Jonathan David (MaCEA General Manager), and the Makati Bike Ambassadors: Justice Gatpayat, Jay Daligdig, Cess Trinidad, Vaneline Maniego, Dan Tronco, Jennie Mars Bansig, Timothy Manuel, Jimmy Crispo, and Christen Resulto.
