For my year-end ride, I went to San Mateo, Rizal and climbed Timberland twice.
And, I broke my best time by 10 seconds. My current best time is 21 minutes and 20 seconds. My second climb was clocked at 21 minutes and 40 seconds.
By the way, I'm already using clipless pedals on my Alpine Trail 29er.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL BIKERS!
