The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) should be lauded for allocating a bike lane along EDSA. The bicycle lane, on both sides of EDSA, stretches from Magallanes to Ayala Avenue. First world countries established their bike lanes a long time ago.

MMDA also launched its first bicycle-sharing program as it opened a one-kilometer bicycle lane along EDSA's sidewalks in Makati City. Is this a world's first? I know bike rental programs in France and Australia but I have not heard of any share-a-bike programs.

Keep up the good work MMDA.
