In celebration of Women's Month, the city of Quezon and Pedal for People and Planet (PPP) successfully launched an all-women bike ride that drew in over 1,000 women bikers. The bikers rode through a 16-kilometer loop of protected bike lanes in the city, starting from Liwasang Aurora, Quezon Memorial Circle.

The Philippines is one of the six Asian countries that have conducted all-women bike actions to raise awareness about food security, clean energy, gender, and climate justice issues. The all-women bike ride in Quezon City is a testament to the growing movement of women who are pushing for change in their communities.

Representing Mayor Joy Belmonte was Gender and Development TWG head Janete Oviedo, who stood in solidarity with the women bikers. The city also raffled off 10 bicycles to the participants of the program, encouraging more women to embrace biking as a sustainable mode of transportation.


The all-women bike ride is a significant milestone in promoting gender equality and environmental sustainability. By encouraging more women to participate in biking, the city of Quezon hopes to create a safer and more inclusive space for women in public places, promote sustainable living, and address the pressing environmental issues we face today.

Through initiatives like this, women are empowered to take an active role in creating a better planet for future generations. The all-women bike ride sends a clear message that women have a vital role to play in building a more sustainable and equitable future for all.
