Bike Friendly SM

April 19, 2021

SM Cares, has embarked on a mission of supporting the bike-riding public through the Bike-Friendly SM Program. Long known for its health and environmental benefits, biking has emerged as a way of safe and cost-free transportation during the pandemic. With bicycles becoming more widely used, SM has created bike-friendly infrastructures and facilities to give the growing number of bike commuters a safe, convenient, and enjoyable biking experienceses.

SM began putting a total of 18 kilometers of shared and dedicated bikes lanes at the SM Mall of Asia, along with hundreds of bike racks, vending machines, and service repair stations which turned out to be very helpful for the bike riders at the MOA complex. Some highlights include SM Seaside Cebu’s 1.6km of shared and dedicated bike lanes; a 2.1-hectare bike trail at SM Center Pulilan; SM City Marikina’s bike lanes and free vehicle parking for customers with bikes; and SM City Iloilo’s partnership with the LGU to promote the culture of cycling, to name a few. Across all SM Supermalls, there are now more than 500 bike racks and more than 80 repair stations nationwide.

In addition, SM also spearheaded the release of information, education, and communication materials on road safety, first aid, and biker and motorist etiquette through the production of the Biker’s Manual and Bike Safety Videos. These were done in partnership with the Department of Transportation (DOTr), Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), several European Embassies whose countries are known biking champions, and various cycling advocacy group.
