Due to safety measures against the COVID-19 pandemic, jeepneys and buses in Cebu are ordered to operate with lower capacity. This also led commuters to two safer alternatives in traveling to work: e-bikes and bicycles. These have become ideal modes of transportation not only in the province but in other parts of the Philippines, too—and for good reason. Both allow riders to observe physical distancing easily, and biking promotes health while e-bikes can make long commutes effortless. So if you are looking for e-bikes and bicycles in Cebu, check out these bike shops that can meet your cycling needs.
