I get my second PMTB jersey

After about two months of waiting, I received my second PMTB jersey. It's the classic black PMTB jersey. Here's the design of the jersey:

My gratitude to Sir Dec for coordinating the orders and deliveries.

Climb all you can - Timberland Heights

I'm setting another record for myself, i.e., climb Timberland Heights as many as I can in one day. The climb must be no dismount. Rest may be done in between climbs - after or before the climb.

My previous record was two climbs. This morning, I attempted to do more than two climbs but made three climbs only.

Next time, I'd try four or more climbs.

It's now 21 minutes

I broke my record for my Timberland climb this afternoon.

From 21 minutes and 20 seconds, it's now 21 minutes.

I conquer Kennon Road

It's a dream fulfilled; and, I was exhilirated with this achievement. I planned it once but didn't push through.

Biking buddies from Team Adventureros, who are Baguio veterans, dared me to go up to Baguio pedaling. I jokingly agreed. Then, the invitation came. It was set January 16 to 17.

My original plan was to pedal all the way from Novaliches up to Baguio City and meet the Manila group in Marilao, Bulacan. My plan B was to chase and meet them at Tarlac City and plan C at Rosario, La Union. It's the plan C that materialized.

January 17 at 1:00 am, I drove from Novaliches to Rosario, La Union. I arrived there at around 5:00 am. I was met by AllanFB and Kaniboy. AllanFB is our host from Rosario; while, Kaniboy just arrived from Manila by bus. I learned that the 10 bikers from Manila stayed overnight at Villasis, Pangasinan. Inciong, our Baguio host, pedaled down from Baguio to meet us.

From Rosario, La Union, 16 brave souls started the climb to Baquio City via Kennon Road. The distance from Rosario to Baguio City is about 35 kilometers.

I'm going to Baguio City

One of my dreams in biking is to climb Baguio City pedaling. Early last year, we'd scheduled a Baguio ride with a biking buddy; but, it didn't push through.

This may become a reality now. Together with some members of Team Adventureros, we set the Baguio ride on January 15 - 16, 2011. From our place in Novaliches, Quezon City, Baguio is 245 kilometers away.

Here's the itinerary:

Day 1 - 210 kilometers
4:30 am - leave Bonifacio Monument
7:00 pm - arrival Rosario, Pangasinan

Day 2 - 35 kilometers of uphills
5:00 am - leave Rosario, Pangasinan
12:00 nn - arrival Baguio City

The group would ride a passenger bus in coming back to Manila in the afternoon.

1.1.11 ride

Happy New Year again!

This morning, I pedaled from Novaliches and climbed Timberland Heights. Near the gate, I was thinking whether I'd proceed to Maarat trails. I decided not but proceeded towards Rodriguez instead and took the trails of Macabud to Pangarap Village on my way home.

Happy New Year!

Goodbye, 2010; and
