Packing for the Manila-Batangas City Ride

I never realized how excited I was to do an epic ride again until I prepared my bike and started packing for the trip this evening. As I was changing the tires and installing the beam rack, I couldn't help but imagine how fun this trip is going to be, riding through the towns and municipalities that I've visited when I was a kid and seeing how they changed.

Trying out All Terra's Eco Trail (Blue Zone)

We were intrigued by what we were hearing from the social networks and in the various forums - that they're building a new trail network somewhere in Timberland to rival La Mesa. It was apparently a partnership between the developers of Timberland and the All Terra bike shops. They even imported someone from IMBA to design it.

Planning my Holy Week Ride

The Batangas Mountain Bikers has an annual visita iglesia every Good Friday. It starts from Batangas City and goes to the churches of various cities and municipalities in the province on their bikes.

This year I'm planning to do something a bit different. I'm thinking of biking from Mandaluyong to Batangas City on Maundy Thursday, doing the visita iglesia on Good Friday, and then bike back to Manila on Black Saturday. I told my bike buddies about this yesterday and they're thinking of meeting me somewhere in Calamba, Laguna or Sto. Tomas, Batangas.

If you're interested in joining me, let me know.

Pictures from my Beijing Trip

I went to Beijing last week and it was a blast. We went to the usual tourist places: Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Bird's Nest, the Cube, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace. They're all breathtaking. I really appreciate their rich culture and history.

One thing that I love is the number of people who ride their bikes. They have dedicated bike lanes so citizens can pedal their way to almost everywhere they please.

Check out the pictures I took.
