CSF Leads Cycling Caravan [ Monday, 9th of February 2015 | 3 years ago ]


A cycling caravan took place last February 7 as part of Kaganapan 2015, the 14th anniversary celebration of the cityhood of San Fernando.

Led by the Kaganapan 2015 Committee under its chairperson Virgilio Cortez and the San Fernando Sports Council, the caravan covered 36 kilometers from the City Hall through all but four of the city’s barangays, up to the Heroes Hall.

“Our goal in doing this cycling caravan is to promote and make our constituents aware that cycling is the most efficient mode of transportation. It’s environment friendly and at the same time, it’s good for our health,” explained the caravan committee’s co-chairperson. Engr. Jose Diaz.

In his remarks during the opening program, Mayor Edwin Santiago said that the city has an advocacy to promote the use of bicycles in the city as an alternative mode of transportation to the jeepney which can harm the environment through its emission of smoke.

As a highlight at the start of the caravan, the mayor also declared the City of San Fernando a bicycle-friendly city, but also admitted the need for legislative support in the creation of bicycle lanes on all city roads.

He added that he intends to invite neighboring municipalities to do the same as this means a holistic approach to this program.

Different cyclist groups from all parts of San Fernando and other towns joined the caravan.

This activity of the city government is in accordance with the 12-point agenda of the Santiago administration which, among others, promotes a clean environment in the city and health and wellness among Fernandinos.
