Nagbike up to Antenna at San Carlos - asphalted na! No more thrill for MTBs

I biked up to Marian Hills entrance this morning with my Sava MTB.  I had a little difficulty managing the climb because I have not climbed SCH for a couple of months and I stayed using hard gears.   32 x 32 (not going down to the granny)   Lo and behold, the posts made earlier that the road leadding to the site has been asphalted was confirmed today.   After the switchback at the concrete portion that ends after the fork at Sitio Manga, all the way up, a distance of about 500 meters, it is all asphalted.  Thanks to some great LGU officials.  I can climb the same on a road bike using compact gears without much difficulty.

There is no need to go to Quiapo, Riverbanks, Manga or even at MoA to get your led flashlight and blinker safety lights.  They are available right in Angono, at Capt Aliano St., (at the road beside the church coming from Dona Aurora, to E de la Paz)  The flash light is P350.00, the mount is 40.00 and spare batt is P90.00.  The led lamp, is only P150.00 (rechargeable)

Punta na bili na.

Some quarters are suspecting that when I post commercial establishments, like the Bikers World,  I am kasosyo.  No I am not.  I just want our kapadyaks where they can acquire accessories for low low bargain price.  Bakit ako sososyo kung maliit lang ang kita?  Siyempre doon tayo sa big time.  Ha6

Edgar de los Reyes our kapadyak from Cardona is getting better

I visited Edgar (7 days) today as I rode with Vhen today, to say hello.  (When we say how do you do, people are really saying "I love you"  from a Louie Armstrong song).

So he is much better now, he gained weight and is color is back to normal.  He said he used to feel faint and breathless even when biking for a short distance.  The symptoms: bum stomach, pain from gout, faint, difficulty in breathing appeared after the Baguio ride.

I also found out that he has been taking energy drink for about a year (which MDs are saying to be bad for the health).  It must have caused his high uric acid, the gouty arthritis, and his problem with the kidneys.

Warnings issued on Energy Drinks

He is suffering from low iron/RBC, pain from gout, and high creatinine (candidate for dialysis)   He is on Chinese and Western medication.  The Chinese medication said it took care of his RBC and kidney.   The Western med took care of his low RBC, his kidney.  But his high uric acid level is not being addressed.

He is 60 years old and I said to him we have to thank the Lord for that long joyful years of life He gave us. We even thank Him for bonus number of years.  If we get sick, He alone knows the best of us and we offer the same to Him, including the pain and discomfort.

But Ed will get better if he wants to because he alone is the best doctor for himself.

Think of good things not bad. Think of HAPPINESS, not sad.

Get better Ed.
