The Man Who Cycled the World

Ever since our great four-day adventure, I've been addicted to a lot of bike touring content - from e-books to videos to soundtracks.

These eight videos embedded below are discovered by my friend, Domeng Magpantay. It's the story of Mark Beaumont's 194-day record-breaking ride around the world. Before Domeng shared these, I was actually reading Mark's book chapter by chapter. Now, I don't need to imagine what the places he's been to looked like.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

A cyclist's gift to his mom

No, mom doesn't bike
In celebration of mother's day, I was thinking of what possible gifts a cyclist can give to his or her mom. It would be cool if the mom bikes too, but for mortals like me with "normal mothers" (if there is such a person), here are some items that I think moms will appreciate. Of course, please feel free to add to the list:

1. Always be careful and wear a helmet every time you ride
2. Put on some sunblock so that her son or daughter won't be too maitim
3. Text her every hour to tell her where you are when you're in a ride
4. Put on Off lotion or some mosquito repellent so that you won't get dengue
5. Getting home without any scrapes or bruises
6. Taking a shower when you get home and not soil the sheets
7. Avoid getting your clothes too muddy so that it won't be a pain to wash

Happy mother's day to all the moms!

The Globe Cordillera Challenge 3 Cycling Jersey

I was finally able to get my Globe Cordillera Challenge 3 cycling jersey yesterday. When they told us that the biggest size was 2XL, I was disappointed. When I registered, I explicitly stated that my jersey size is 4XL. So when I got it, I wasn't that excited. In fact, I was actually preparing myself for another humiliating suman fitting session when I get home.

Lo and behold, when I pulled out the jersey from the brown paper bag and tried it on, it was an amazing fit. I was very much surprised! Good job, Globe and mr. jersey supplier (whoever you are)!

Check out the jersey's design for this year. This is the jersey's front:

On another note, you don't need to wait for the another Globe Cordillera Challenge to help with Cordillera reforestation efforts. You can send your donations to the following:
