Bike Ride to Mount Sinai

07 Feb 2015 - Topher, Alvin, Tats and I met at the bridge in Barangka, Marikina last Sunday morning and then went off towards Timberland to have breakfast at Aling Tina's.

To get to Mt. Sinai, we needed to conquer Walls 1 & 2 at Timberland Heights, then pass through the Timberland trail, and then a few more kilometers of paved road to reach a stop-over eatery. After lunch, we headed off towards Mount Sinai and that big concrete slab of the 10 Commandments...

Tagaytay Solo Ride on a Sunday

01 Feb 2015 - Fun fun fun Sunday! I went on another solo ride, this time towards Tagaytay.

Had lunch there, then went to a spot overlooking Taal and soaked in the amazing view!

There was a slight drizzle on the way to Tagaytay, with strong headwinds (and even sidewinds) and the route I took had lots of uphills, but it was all good.

Got to break-in my new Ibera rack and Frost River bicycle bag and I'm happy!

On my way back home, I passed through BGC (my usual pit-stop), and was surprised to run into some of the guys from this local Surly Facebook group I joined, and had fun mingling with them and meeting new friends.

Pics here.
