the theme this time is bicycle revolution where an environmentally sustainable transportation (est) system should be implemented within metro manila. the department of transportation & communications (dotc) and the department of environment & natural resources (denr) already has plans for an est which includes clean and efficient mass transport systems i.e. trains, lrt, and brt (bus rapid transit). the organizers of this tour—the firefly brigade—just wants to make sure that the bicycle is included in the implementation. its a simple solution to an increasingly complicated problem.
