CYCLISTS, joggers, runners and pedestrians can use a dedicated pathway inside the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) complex starting September 12, 2010. The 3.5 km Green Lane that stretches from Roxas Boulevard to Macapagal Boulevard will be launched on Sunday, September 12, 2010 at 6:00 am at the CCP Liwasang Ullalim with a 7K Fun Bike-Run led by celebrity cyclists, free bike clinics and tune-ups, a bike exhibit and the installation of bicycle racks in selected areas of the CCP.  Selected routes within the CCP complex will also be closed to vehicular traffic on the following Saturdays and Sundays from 4am to 8am and 4pm to 7pm. 

The CCP Green Lane aims to reduce carbon emission in the complex, encourage the use of bicycles for work and leisure and establish the CCP complex as a sanctuary for culture, nature and health in the urban sprawl. The Green Lane is part of CCP’s “Luntiang Lungsod, Luntiang Sining” (Green City, Green Arts) campaign conceived with its partners Haribon Foundation, Winner Foundation, Department of Tourism, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Philippine Navy, Philippine Coast Guard, Philippine Dragon Boat Federation, Manila Broadcasting Corporation, GMA-7 Network, Net 25 Feed your Mind, Tanggol Kalikasan, Harbour Square, and the Firefly Brigade.  The event is sponsored by Pacific Paint (BOYSEN) Philippines, Inc.

For more information, please call the CCP Cultural Promotions at 832-1125 locals 1500/ 1501/ 1511/ 1512.
