Hardcore addict to the bone riders

This morning it was cloudy and there was light misty shower when I took off.  However, past Binangonan and in Cardona, up to Morong, the mist turned into shower and then rain. I passed Gerry at Callahan and we were together again in Morong.  He said what are we as riders:   rain or shine.  It is riding whether rain or shine.

Jeff went ahead of me at Island Gas.

On the  way back:  I met: Nolite, Gerry, Sec Noe, and Alan.

Great riders.  Addict these guys.

The Super Six Recyclists who include Allan, Jeff, Weng and Angel Balubar, Luis and Gerry did a reverse Laguna  loop today. They started from C6 down to Muntinglupa, San Pedro, Binan, Sta Rosa, Cabuyao, Calamba, Los Banos Bay  Calauan Victoria, Pakil,  Sta Cruz Pagsanjan.

By 10:30 they were in Pagsanjan and at 12, were in Mabitac Their ETA was 3 pm.  Wow.  They did a fast clip for their flat ride!

There are two dissenting opinion on the regular route:    Mausok matrapik pag dating ng San Pedro Muntinglupa.  But it is mausok and matrapik in the  morning.

If you do the reverse loop, you are tired when you scale up Kalayaan and Bugarin. Which do you  think is the right route for you.?   The Binan folks I met last week did it our way, hurdling the climbs early on thus from Binan to C6 Taytay, Binangonan, Cardona, Morong Tanay Pililla, Mabitac, Famy, Pangil, Paete, Lumban, Pagsanjan.

I could have joined as the 7th rider, but I got an invitation for 49th home coming of our High School class.  I got as far as Highway 2000 to see the Super Six off

My ride today on Sava Ti MTB to Medalva Hills

The PE of our office mates took us to Medalva Hills at Botong Francisco Highway.   It is a challenging uphill climb.  However I had my SAVA Ti bike 3 x 10  XT group set.   There were 3 sections of climb:   one after highway, next is the 500 meter long climb to the crest, and another two steep climb at the subdivision

I had to use 32 x 36 gears to make it easy on myself...

I have my usual 3x ride for the week:   one on November 30, one yesterday and one today.   Ti to Morong on November 30 Sava carbon yesterday to Mahabang Parang, and today's ride.
