Tactical urbanism is better than nothing. #ProtectedBikeLanesNow
MMDA claimed they didn't have personnel to direct cars and motorcycles away from the bike lane, but clearly they have the energy to remove what little implements people are using to protect themselves.
This is embarrassing.

Tactical urbanism—such as pop-up cycle paths—allows for the rapid adaptation of urban space in the face of short-term crisis.
However, these moments are also an opportunity for cities to improve conditions in the long-term, as Amsterdam did in the 1970s.

Ephemeral pop-up #bikelanes in #MetroManila .
I think the lesson here is if you coordinate with MMDA, your bike lanes get removed after four hours. If you don't coordinate with them, they stay up for at least two days hahaha https://twitter.com/_ChiAwase/status/1267702488079032321

One of the many myths about the Netherlands is that the Dutch have always enjoyed high levels of cycling. This was not always so. And more worrying, it was close to being demolished entirely.
A turning point: Amsterdam's Nieuwmarkt in the spring of 1975.
