PATAYAN RIDE

Had a looong black Sabbath ride last Saturday with some buddies. My favorite ride partner and some close bike friends. No cyclometer, no plan, no map, it was a bike out towards the mountain. Had a hearty bulalo after a long side trip and the ride was full of color. From Boso-boso to Binayoyo to PIntong Bukawe to wawa the mall. Had some spills here and there, blame it on the new shoes or the old tires, but it was all good. The halo-halo was fantastic, the people were friendly and the experience was priceless.
From time to time, I wonder why I bike and endure the pain of climbing uphill under the heat of the sun, but the answers come quickly once Mama nature explodes in all her wonder and I just stare at her in awe.
The food tastes better, the friendship is stronger and the whole being is happier after biking. Truly, after patayan, there’s light at the end of the ride.

  1. had my pagbabalik ride earlier today after a month long hiatus. heat was scorching but totoo ka, there’ nothing like enjoying mama nature at her finest. lahat na lang ng pangaaaliw sa sarili naisip ko na during difficult hot climbs kanina pero it was all worth it.

    it was the old tires:) the new shoes were great for climbing, but not built for spills
