The Mobility Awards was driven by a simple goal: the prioritization of the needs of 88% of Filipino households in Metro Manila that do not own private cars (JICA-MUCEP, 2015). According to Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), over 80% of road spaces are dedicated for the use of private cars despite only 12% of Filipino households being car owners. This is not only happening in Metro Manila, but everywhere else in the Philippines where the conditions for cyclists and pedestrians remain challenging.
Over-all, the Mobility Awards aims to:
- Inspire action, involvement, and coordination among LGUs, workplaces and commercial establishments who want to improve conditions for urban mobility; and
- Recognize leaders who have been contributing to the movement early-on and those who have been responsive to the changing times by offering ideas that help embrace cycling, and other modes of inclusive active mobility.
A mobility revolution is well underway, led by common folks determined to provide for their families while protecting their health. Now more than ever, cycling and the prioritization of pedestrian needs are gaining national prominence as safe, empowering, cost-effective, practical, democratic and efficient transport modes due to limitations brought by this pandemic. However, we are still a long way from making the conditions optimal for every Filipino commuter.

The Cotabato City Bike Enthusiast was created wayback June 5,2016 using Facebook as a media platform. It was just a simple idea to create a small group to invite other cyclist for a fun ride in that year. That year cycling is not that popular since there are lots of other activities to choose from. Only few groups and associations are promoting cycling in the city, they sometimes host cycling activities such as fun ride, bike for a cause,bike for peace and other cycling event. It was also very uncommon to see regular cyclist in the city that year and sometimes only those who have groups likely to be seen in the streets. The group wanted also to give focus on those who are individual rider or cyclist who are interested in cycling because joining organized group that year is quite limited and costly. The group wanted to reach out those unfortunate rider/cyclist to establish its own biking community were everyone is welcome to join freely. The aim of the group is to unify all bikers in the city to promote a safe and friendly biking community considering all ages,religion and beliefs.
The group was also created in order to have a portal where everyone can exchange ideas,share their knowledged about cycling, inform or educate those newbies in cycling. The group also wanted to showcase the city’s tourist spots where sometimes cyclist visited during fun rides. Moreover, its not about all cycling but also importantly to create friendship with others.
