I was asked this question thrice:   by MTB rider in front of PNPA, by a father of a cadet from Guimba Nueva Ecija who visited his son, manager of Silang Jollibee.  They were wondering how come I was with very young riders?

How come I could still bike this far?

And they were surprised that I declared that I am 66.   Still going strong and steady for 66.

And a fellow rider Gerry remarked that I was better off with the strugglers (4 of them) who arrived some 30 minutes later than the others climbing the Sta Rosa Highway to Tagaytay

This was the third long and hard ride I had for the last 3 months:   Jariel's Peak, Majayjay.   I thought I am done with biking.  But I am not.  Puwedeig pwedi pa

Peter kept on asking kung may salunga ba sa Tagaytay City ride yesterday, October 22, 2017

Si Peter Anonuevo panay ang tanong kung may salunga yesterday sa Tagaytay.  Of course there were.  The most challenging one was before PNPA.  The rest of the way it was easy.  It was a 22 km ride all the way from Balibago. Sta Rosa.   It took me nearly one hour from Balibago to PNPA

I was hesitant to ride this, because of many tall stories from other riders.  May heartbreak hill daw (may be that is the long climb up before PNPA)  And Joel said that when they rode it, he had to use his 44 gears (naglakad)

As for me, the frequent SCH practice ride using a road bike helped.   I did not have to use 39 x 32.  All that I used  were 39 x 19 to 23

I did not suffer nor feel any distress as when climbing up Tagaytay via Aguinaldo highway.

Nauna nga ako eh.  Nainip ako waiting for them for at least 30 minutes (some 2 km from the public market)  There were 4 whom we waited for being behind.

The other thing is when you bike in this place, you seem to be transported to another place.  One with nature and with all modern amenities.  Wow

As if you were re in Shang ri la
