Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte reminded bikers to wear protective gear and follow the rules when biking around the city after she was issued a ticket for not wearing a helmet while joining a group of bikers for a cause, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Belmonte and Cherie Atilano of UN Food System Champions were issued tickets by the Department of Public Order and Safety (DPOS) for violating City Ordinance 2942-2021 and were fined P500 each during the Cycle to End Violence Against Women bike event on Thursday, Nov.25.

“I commend our DPOS for strictly implementing our ordinance kasi wala silang sini-sino kapag nagpapatupad ng batas,” Belmonte said.

The city government, the Embassies of Netherlands and Austria, the Philippine Commission on Women, Spark Philippines, and several non-government organizations, launched the Cycle to End VAW event to commemorate the 18-day campaign to end violence against women, as well as the third anniversary of the #RespetoNaman Movement.

“Through this event, we hope to spread awareness among the general public about the importance of protecting the rights of women and girls by addressing all forms of gender-based violence,” Belmonte said.

The participants cycled along the bike lanes of QC Hall, Elliptical road, up to Agham Road, and back.

The city government strictly reminded all bikers and motorists to strictly follow the rules and health protocols to ensure their safety.
