We met Orville Tiamson, the famous Angono artist, and professor in visual arts who brought his MTB to Wawa. It drews ahs and ohs because there were about two dozen lamps, powered by individual batteries and one main 12 V battery:   the small lamsps were about  15, and two flashlights, one main headlight, and two multi bulb LED, aside from the tail lamp. I guessed he must have spent about 20t for these fixtures.   He merely smiled.  He said he invested in these because he does night rides because it is cooler (not at daytime when it is very hot lately) and after he crashed in Cainta, because he had just one lamp.  He is right we should invest in safety  (I should invest in one additional flashlight)

We should do night ride to Baguio soon. There was this MTB rider from Mangahan an ex PA who did a Baguio ride  and it took them 18 hours 4 pm until 10 am the following day. They had lunch and took the bus on the way home
