last night i very happily discovered that the parking area between mcdonald's and greenbelt 1 has a bike rack. it possibly was there since some time ago, but it wasn't until i had my own 2 wheels that it became relevant to me. i was actually supposed to chain my bike to the railing somewhere until i realized it was there. now i have to find out whether landmark also has a rack so i can do my groceries there. although shopwise has a bike rack outside (uncovered, mind you), i am getting to be very disappointed with the selection there, as well as the prices. landmark trinoma's supermarket is very very impressive, but it's too far to bike (and taking the MRT isn't an option either since they don't allow many items). i'd like to be able to bring just a big bag and my bike to do my groceries and errands so i save a lot on taxi bills. i've managed to save a few pesos pedaling my way to alliance française and back (although, i don't think it's too long a walk, either). ahhh... discovering new things now that i've upgraded as a pedestrian.
