CALOOCAN CITY, May 30 (PIA) -- Allianz PNB Life has partnered with Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso to install bike racks designed to evoke memories of growing up in Manila.

Crafted to encourage a culture of cycling among Filipinos and to stir local tourism, each bike rack was creatively designed to reflect the place for which it will be installed.

“As someone who grew up in Manila and continues to live and serve its residents today, it makes me proud that Allianz PNB Life has chosen our city to bring its sustainability campaign and take inspiration from our beautiful and historic sites,” said Domagoso.

The bike racks and art installation in Manila were designed by Mark Wesley Pahate. A Manileño himself. 

Tabak bike rack at the Kartilya ng Katipunan commemorates the bravery of the Katipuneros.

It was placed strategically near the monument of hero Andres Bonifacio holding a tabak. 

On the other hand, the Maya bike rack at Liwasang Bonifacio, is inspired by the little bird that once flew in abundance over the city’s parks and churches.

Moreover, at the Rajah Sulayman Park, where one can see Manila Bay from across Roxas Boulevard, the Alon bike rack will stand as a remembrance of the city’s historic bay and beautiful sunset.

Meanwhile, the Kalesa bike rack at Plaza Roma in front of the Manila Cathedral in Intramuros is a reminder of how the horse-drawn carriage used to rule the streets during earlier times, (PIA NCR)
