ILOILO CITY, Dec. 2 (PIA) - Iloilo City will be receiving P9.9-million worth of funds for the promotion of Iloilo City as the "Bike Capital of the Philippines."

Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Trenas said that the city government has been promoting this metropolis as the Bike Capital of the Philippines, considering that it was hailed as the "Most Bike Friendly City".
