McDonald’s opens new Bike and Dine facilities in Pampanga

MCDONALD’S Philippines has opened Bike & Dine facilities in its CM Recto and Clark Gate stores in Pampanga, in its bid to provide more outdoor dining options. Known as a bike-friendly zone, Clark plans to build more bike-related facilities moving forward and through the McDonald’s Bike & Dine, this aims to provide cyclists a dining space after they “Ride Thru.” McDonald’s Ride Thru aims to encourage all types of vehicles, not just four-wheeled ones, to order food via the drive through lane without leaving their vehicle. Apart from that, cyclists can mount their bike securely in racks that are attached to a ledge which doubles as a table. That way bike-riding customers can enjoy their meals without worrying about the safety of their bicycles. There are two other Bike & Dine facilities in the country, McDonald’s Vermosa (Cavite) and McDonald’s McKinley West (Taguig), with more slated to open this year.
