The thought of a bike-friendly Metro Manila isn’t new to many of us. It’s key to having a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle, and we wouldn’t have to rely on mass transports all the time. New normal measures also tell us that biking will be the archetypal way to get around the region even after the pandemic. That being said, it’s no wonder more people have started turning to bike shops in Manila to buy two-wheelers of their own.
But as the subject of where to buy bikes in Metro Manila is not an easy road, we’ve narrowed down your options to the best bike shops in Manila below.
Bike shops in Manila that we highly recommend
1. King’s Bicycle Store
The store aims to give Filipinos affordable bicycles, but also ticks all other areas in terms of choosing the right bike for you. “It doesn’t have to be expensive, but we do believe it should be worth it,” one of their social media page descriptions read. As of 2020, their bicycles cost between ₱3,000 and ₱14,000. Bicycle parts and biking are also available at a variety of prices.
Address: 620-622 Quezon Boulevard Quiapo, Manila

2. Glorious Ride Bike Shop
Glorious Ride opened in 2010 and has since become a go-to bike shop in Quezon City. They have branches in Kamias and Fairview. Both offer a wide selection of bicycle brands and types, including mountain bikes, road bikes, and children’s pushbikes. Moreover, they sell bicycle parts, accessories from shoes and gloves to lights and locks, as well as bike cleaning and maintenance tools.

This is a one-stop-shop to buy bicycle parts and accessories in Metro Manila. Beyond the typical bike options, Cristy’s also sells tandem or three-person bicycles for frontliners and essential workers; by structure, the latter comply with social distancing protocols, too. Their online reviews also recommend the shop for their extremely accommodating staff and reasonable pricing of bikes.

4. Litepro Cyclery
Bike units, pedals, rims, magnets, brakes — this bike shop in Metro Manila has them all, and much more. At the moment, walk-ins and pick-ups are prohibited in the Caloocan store. After finding the product you like, you can place your order via their Facebook page, pay through bank transfer, and wait for the delivery via Grab or Lalamove. For June, orders are being accepted for the FNHON Freedom 14″, which costs ₱24,800.

The shop is largely known for their extensive product offerings, which are available both wholesale and retail. They also make and sell customised bicycle units. The shop has multiple branches in and outside Metro Manila, and they deliver anywhere in the country. Price-wise, the bicycles aren’t the most economical, but the quality will be enough to make you want to invest in one.
