Reversing Nova - Pangarap – Macabud – Litex loop

I’ve done the Nova – Pangarap – Macabud – Litex loop several times. And, I experienced reversing it yesterday. The reverse ride was organized by YummyNia. And, together with StrykerMD and Jeff, we did the reverse loop.

We rendezvoused at Puregold Fairview. At past 7:00 am, we started our trek. The loop is a combination of roads, uphill, and trails and is about 40 kilometers. We finished by noon.

Finally, after several attempts, I was able to register at the Philippine Mountainbiking Forum or PhilMoFo last August 6.
I already made my first thread / post introducing myself.

Thank you for the welcome, guys!

I again commute from work to home

For the second time, I came home from work using my bike (AlitePot).

It's my coding day (Wednesday); hence, I couldn't leave by car until 7:00 PM. Hence, I decided to bring my bike and use it in coming home. At 5:00 pm, I prepared and left 20 minutes after.
At the basement 3 parking of our building

The distance from my work to home is about 32 kilometers. After two hours of pedaling, I arrived home.

Duet ride to Timberland Heights via Shotgun

Today, I had another duet ride to Timberland Heights. This time, it’s with YummyNia and via Shotgun.

We met at the Neopolitan Business Park at the back of SM Fairview. We waited for sometime hoping other bikers might join us. After 15 minutes, we pedaled all the way to Aling Tina's Eatery. After taking our breakfast of "papaitang kambing", we climbed Shotgun to Maarat trails and pedaled down via Timberland.

After we parted ways, I decided to return and climbed Timberland Heights.

At the Maarat trails, I first experienced the problem with my chain - the lower portion of the chain stuck to the sprocket while pedaling.
