Jojo – Manila

“43 year old, architect most of the time who experimented on a bike sharing project with low tech style using recycled bikes from Japan.”

Why do you ride?

I ride to save time so I can do the more important next thing… Relaxing!

Best thing about cycling?

You can stop for street food without having to worry about parking.

What improvements would you like to see for cyclists?

I hope bike commuters in Manila get more respect from motor vehicles.

Fondest cycling memory?

I had the best BMX on the street but had the worst biking skills when I was young. Who cares? I still bike up to now. The other kids on the block are now fat!

Cycling tip?

Commute with tights and wear your trousers over them once you reach your destination.

3 things you’d love the world to know about you?

– I get upset with hopeless situations like traffic. That keeps me motivated to bike.  Problem solved.
– As a designer, I can’t just sit down and not encourage other people to move using
2 wheels. Architects design for solutions, we can not NOT do anything.
– I love to see girls get all muddy and dirty after an off road ride. They look so free

and that makes the world so much nicer!
