Wobbly wheels? Stella Quimbo offers free bike repair

0

Biking has become a popular mode of transportation due to the travel restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With many people using their bikes to get around the metropolis, Marikina Rep. Stella Quimbo has found it prudent to offer free bike repair.

In a Facebook post, Quimbo said there will be a bike repair lane every Sunday at Marikina Heights, near S Mall and a McDonald’s branch.

She said the initiative will last throughout summer, from 6 a.m. to 10 am.

“Para matulungan ang mga no work-no pay worker at bike enthusiast ng lungsod, lalo na ngayong pahirapan sa public transportation, sinimulan kaninang umaga ang free bike repair program at tinauhan ito ng mahuhusay na bike mechanic na volunteers ng Project HOPE: Kapit-Bisig, Marikina na itinayo ni Teacher Stella bilang pangtugon sa kalamidad at iba pang krisis,” Quimbo said.
