There is a saying among hard core bikers that the bicycle is a transport of delight. In Boracay, whether you are easing from one resort to another, through Puka shell beach going down the main road all the way to Manoc-Manoc, there is no better way to travel around the island. In the places that I have rode a bicycle, most especially in China and other places in Southeast Asia, I was frequently amazed at the level of trust placed in me by the local people from the cities, towns and communities that I have crossed, simply because I was riding a bicycle. I think trust leads to hospitality, on a pure practical level, but it is also key to kinship and understanding. And in these modern times, when we can be at least familiar with so much of the area from where we seat, this is one of the greatest goals of travel.
