Hello saddle! I'm back!

I broke my biking hiatus yesterday and did a nice short lap in Timberland's main trail. From the clubhouse parking area (This is the new parking area. They don't allow us to park on the main road anymore), I pedaled my way to the offroad section and took a left turn towards Roxas. Then it was all downhill from Roxas "boulevard" to the part that used to be called "Boy-Girl". Then I climbed up the cemented road up to Araneta and took a right turn back to the main trail straight to the parking area.

I rode relatively late. I think I started the ride at about 11:00 a.m. Luckily it was overcast and so it wasn't too hot to bike.

I was riding with my iPod. I don't generally do this for safety reasons, but since I'll be riding on my own, I thought it would be great to have my own pacer. I just lowered the volume so that I can still hear what's happening.

I was a bit scared of passing through the cemented section going up to Araneta. I remember seeing a snake there once. It was basking in the summer sun as we rode through. We thought it was a stick on the road until it moved. Thankfully I didn't encounter one during my solo ride yesterday.

It was seven weeks since I last rode my bike. Before that, my last ride was on May 1st in our Subic sufferfest with King and Topher.

I think I should do this more often.

Here's a map of my ride. Pathetic, I know, but it's a start.
