Experimental bike commute today from home to the studio. Took the Mc Arthur hi-way then Rizal Ave. While the route is only 16 kms, the sudden stops of jeepneys / busses, no look pedestrians and vehicle emissions makes this ride a challenge. Honestly its quite dangerous and it needs extreme caution. 
Took this experiment in the curiosity of bike commuting via Mc Arthur during rush hour. Feasible? Well.. can be but not for the first time riders. I also noticed how drivers thinks bicycle riders to be just an object on the road especially the jeepneys. They will stop right in front of your face no matter what. Sideswipe? Oh yes they will! 
If we only have proper bike lanes, less pollution I'd so this regularly. It only took me an hour including traffic light stops and burnt 480 calories. Its fun and thrilling, however I'll be trying other less busy roads next time.
