The unfinished business

We were supposed to traverse two basic trails - the Macabud then the Maarat; but, we managed the Macabud trails only and ended up at the Timberland gate only.

Met-up at Caltex Station along Regalado Avenue, Novaliches, Q. C. and rode out at about 6:45 this morning

The business is still unfinished.

Shotgun ride with Paulvana and KBrianne

The ride was cooked at PMTB but the planned route was the Wall, Timberland Heights and Maarat basic trails. I met with riding buddies, Paulvana and KBrianne, at Jolibee Fairview at around 6:00 this morning. Thence, we pedaled all the way to San Mateo, Rizal.

When we reached the intersection to Shotgun, I stopped and asked them if they'd like to try the Shotgun. They've already climbed the Wall but never the Shotgun yet. Hesitant; but, they agreed. He he he . . . They were unsuspecting all along that they'd be shotgunned.

Muddy weekend rides

It was raining for the past days. Consequently, the trails were muddy despite there were no more rains last weekend.

I had been shunning muddy trails, as much as possible, to avoid getting my bikes, clothes and things full of muds.

But, last weekeend, I craved for them. Saturday, I passed by the Macabud trails on my way to San Mateo, Rizal.

And, on Sunday, I went to Mt. Maarat and passed by the basic trails going to Giant store adn vice versa.

After the Maarat Trails ride

Both trails were muddy with slippery portions. And, I had hard times negotiating them. Unfortunately, there were slips and falls. To avoid more falls, I just walked and pushed my bikes some of the times.
