Routes to NAIA

Got a phone call right after the AKTV Run from one of the bosses. He told me, “You will report to Paranaque Office for a week.”

It been a long time since I biked alone and I want to give it a try, just for a week.  This bike commuting from Manila to NAIA would help me gain back my street confidence and one way to overcome it, is to do it on a busy streets. I report for work at 0800 which I have to leave Manila as early as 0700.

There are several routes going to NAIA from Manila, I want to explore them all to see which one is safer and not.

Day 1:
Manila to Naia Route: Sta. Ana – Pedro Gil – Quirino Ave – Left to Roxas Blvd. – No to flyovers – Coastal Rd – NAIA Rd – Ninoy Aquino Ave – Pascor Drive
Time: 45 minutes
Traveled: 15.36 kms

Naia to Manila Route: Ninoy Aquino Ave – NAIA Rd – Coastal Road – Roxas Blvd – Libertad – Arnaiz Ave – SLEX – Malugay St. – Pasong Tamo – Lamayan – Sta. Ana.
Time: 1 hours and 30 minutes
Traveled: 16 kms

Day 2:
Manila to Naia Route: Sta. Ana – Lamayan – Pasong Tamo – Right to Arnaiz Avenue – Left to Evangelist St. – Edsa Southbound – U turn MRT Taft Station – Edsa Northbound – Right to Aurora Blvd – Right to Airport Rd – Domestic Road – NAIA Rd – Ninoy Aquino Ave – Pascor Drive
Time: 50 minutes
Traveled: 15.88

Naia to Manila Route: Pascor Drive – Ninoy Aquino Ave – NAIA Rd – Domestic Rd – Airport Rd. – St. Andrews Road ( i love the scene in Resorts World) – Sales Rd – Pasong Tamo Ext – Pasong Tamo Ave – Lamayan – Sta. Ana.
Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Traveled: 15.60

I didn’t make it the next day until Friday because Typhoon Dodong came. Among those routes mentioned above, the safest one for me is the Day 2 Naia to Manila Route. That, on my next bike commuting to NAIA, it will be my regular way of going to work. The fear on the streets, I believed I conquered it.

Hoping I will be assigned in NAIA on a couple of weeks so that I can explore the Diosdado Macapagal Hi-way.

What is the safest bike to work commuting route for you?
