We need more safe riding habits from motorbikers

Wheels of Happiness

Angono, Rizal Philippines  |  September 22, 2014

We nearly met some serious accident yesterday at Paete on the way back from Caliraya.   A tricycle darted from the side street. Val and I were on full speed probably doing 30.  That action made us do some evasive action;  however, two single at full speed also did a counterflow.  So after the evasive maneuver, we had to swerve back to the innermost part of the lane to avoid a collision.

The lack of safety mindset among motorbikers represent a challenge to road bikers.  A number have died from head on collision with motorbikes who occupied the opposite lane in a zigzag or ordinary road.   Heard:   in Muzon last week two RIT motorbikers died after a head on collision dragged and killed them.

Last Wednesday, a motorbiker, with his wife cut me in San Juan Binangonan Rizal, Then overtook the jeep, then cut the jeepney to turn right to San Juan.  It looked very annoying if not stupid maneuver to me.

                    Gerry's flat at Caliraya

Rides would not be complete without spice of incidents/situations.  Situations are spice of rides.

Some of the incidents:

1.  Gerry had two flats.   He replaced his flat tube with one that had 55 mm valve.   I said Gerry's valve (tt) is long.  He had one in Caliraya.  The other one was in Pangil just before FAmy.  When he had the right valve, no more flats took place
