Bukidnon/ Cagayan de Oro Adventure

Bukidnon/ Cagayan de Oro Adventure —–Valleybikes in Mindanao

Valleybikes was given a chance to travel to Cagayan de Oro and Bukidnon. We covered the local adventure reality show of Baste Duterte, Bogart the Explorer, Atty. Alexis Lumbatan, Andrei Apostol and Sboi Malicay called LAKAW TA, BAI or simply put: LAKBAI.

The adventure was really awesome, getting to meet a lot of people, jamming with the local tribes, chatting with the artists and musician and meeting the local mountain bike riders.

rollin with the local ENDURO boys.

Valleybikes met the Mayor and other Enduro riders from the neighboring towns. The Mangima bike park/ trail used to be a 4 x 4 trail but the Mayor converted it into a bike park. There are other attractions in the Nature reserve but we were very interested in the Enduro track. It was nicely built, with awesome switchbacks and well groomed berms. There are also jumps and drops for the intense riders. The MTB scene is quite alive in the area due to the lush mountain range in Mindanao.

Balugto, one of the finest soil painters was very hospitable and he let us party in his house.

This is Balugto, but this is not his house.
