Taiwan Excellence Bicycles

One of the nicest thing that was invented by humans are the bicycles.

Bicycles are far more handy , easy to maintain , environment friendly , healthy and can be easily maneuvered than any other kind of transportation available in the world. 

That is why Taiwan government , specifically the Taiwan Excellence group , came up with this amazing idea.

Taiwan Bicycles Provides Clean and Green Traveling Options in Metro Manila

You see, getting around Manila is a constant struggle for many Filipinos. It is very difficult for many to be able to find transportation to get from one location to another. The congested roads and the infamous Manila traffic add to the problems when it comes to traveling in the city. Public transportation such as the MRT and LRT doesn’t prove to be useful as well with the long queues that commuters have to face every day.

With many trying to come up with alternative solutions to the aforementioned problems, one practical and affordable solution to this problem is to ride a bicycle. Though many would state that using a bike is impractical here in Metro Manila, there are many benefits when one chooses to ride a bike to work.

Healthy mind and healthy body

Riding a bicycle instead of driving a car or taking public transportation can help one burn calories and strengthen one’s body. Riding a bike is a good form of cardiovascular exercise which burns calories, but is gentler on the joints compared to other forms of exercise. It can also improve muscle tone and clear one’s head before going to work ; giving an individual more energy and helps you better concentrate on the different tasks needed to be done throughout the day.

Greener world

Riding a bicycle is also a good way to help Mother Nature as it doesn’t emit any kind of pollutants or carbon gases, reducing one’s carbon footprint in the process. Plus, a bicycle doesn’t require gasoline, thus, reduces the consumption of this resource.

Easier on the pockets

Riding a bicycle can also help a person lessen expenses. The money originally used for public transportation or putting fuel in one’s car can be used for something else. In addition, a bicycle requires less maintenance compared to a car.

To encourage bicycle riding and exercising while continuing its commitment in providing better products for Filipinos, the Taiwan Excellence campaign is introducing various brands of innovative foldable bicycles in the country. Brands that are being brought in include Strida, Tern, and Pacific. These brands aim to encourage more Filipinos to try riding bicycles as an alternative means of transportation, while helping Filipinos stay fit and save Mother Earth.

The Taiwan Excellence campaign, organized by Bureau of Foreign Trade of Taiwan (BOFT), and implemented by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), is the symbol of quality that guarantees the superior value of Taiwanese lifestyle brands across Asia is now in the Philippines.  

For the record , the brands of bicycles the Taiwan Excellence are offering are the following :




All of these brands offer unique, foldable bicycles which makes it convenient for users to bring and carry wherever they go.


Since its birth in 1994, Birdy has become the top choice of the folding bike available on the market because of its unique, sophisticated design and excellent riding feel.

Birdy has sold more than 150,000 units (as of 2012) all over the world. Outside its birthplace in Germany, it is particularly popular in the Asia region, including Japan,Taiwan, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. This year the Philippines and Vietnam will join the family as well.

The Classic Birdy discontinued in 2005 and was replaced by the Monocoque Birdy and during the past few years the Classic Birdy is on top of the collector’s item list.

The New Classic Birdy does not only has the vintage appearance of the model before 2005, but also equipped with improvement functions which were created on the second generation Monocoque Birdy.

The main features includes redesigned oversize main frame for better rigidity, internal cable routing, and 17 degree handlebar for optimum riding position. It is available in navy blue and red, the first color options for the 1994 model!

The New Classic Birdy is the ideal choice for people who can enjoy Birdy at more affordable price.
