|See the new Bisikleta.ph jersey I'm wearing?|
Yesterday, eleven mountain bikers from Batangas City made the journey to get a taste of what this mystical trail network has in store. They brought lunch, trail food and lots of water this time. Leaving Tower 11 a little past 7:30 in the morning, we hit the singletracks right from the start and visited the usual areas: the treehouse, the kubo, the lakeside, tower 8 and tower 5. We were supposed to ride till tower one, but I can that everyone's running on empty from all the riding. So we headed back to the parking area. In end, the whole trip was 28.99 kilometers long.
I thought I won't be able to join these guys. I was just recovering from a two-day flu bout. At first I was thinking that it could go back after the ride, but I figured I'd just play it by ear and ride depending on how I felt. Besides, how often do these boys actually visit Manila to ride?
Yesterday was also the debut of my Bisikleta.ph jersey. Made by the guys from Epic, I have to say that I absolutely love it! I find the full zip especially helpful when the weather was getting hot. The boys like the design, too, and a lot of them want to order. I think I'll come up with a sign-up sheet for the next batch.
Eric has the video of the ride. I hope Mr. Salamat Sa Panonood (a.k.a. Domeng) would still edit it despite him not being able to make it this time.
Here's the map of our route:
