Practice ride around Jala Jala and Bugarin - we had to look for Nolite

Wheels of Happiness

We had a practice ride to tune up for Baguio ride.  Some 14 souls answered the invitation:  Nolite, (whom we looked for in Mabitac - he was missing)   Alan, Weng, Angel Balubar (brothers) MinZap (Armin Zapanta - who said walang kakuwenta2 ginagagawa ng MTB)  Luis Genavia, Master E,  Meong, Vhen, Ambet Mateo, Tito Fabay. Gerry K, Jess Verchez,  and myself

Two did not join the ride:   VM Jun Vic and Joel.    7 days they said joined but he elected to ride up Bugarin first and we did not see each other.  (Master E nearly committed the same mistake)

Unfortunately for me and Alan, we collided somewhere in Jalajala where there were road construction. We crashed and Alan was all over/on top of me.  I got multiple rashes and wounds and they are painful.   We ate Lomi in Mabitac and during that time we were looking for Nolite (he turned out to have passed at the short cut from Jalajala to Mabitac.  The peloton caught up with him at Km 69.

The ride is about 130 km long and a good tune up.  We finished about 3:00 plus.  

I had to go home on a limp mode.
