Upi Road Trip!

Finally got outside last Saturday, and put in some road miles. It was warm and sunny morning
when we (Tolits and Jay-r) headed southwest in mountainous region of Nuro, North Upi, Maguindanao, a 43.4kms ride from Cotabato City, it took us 2.5 hrs to reach Barangay Bugabungan, 7.4 kilometers from the Poblacion of Nuro. we ate our lunch there at Jimboy's House. we ate Tinolang Manok and Laeng! yummy! the road, uhmm... for me its not a road, but its a trail beacause it was rocky and it was muddy!I lost my water container while we descend in
Baranggay Darugao. but still I enjoyed it so much, took advantage of an afternoon ride
heading home with cold weather. We ended our ride with a cruise down to Tenorio and enjoy
the Scenery of lush green mountains.

Power Improvement

as an engine of my Human Powered Vehicle (HPV),A Specialized mountain bike that never lets me down every ride, after 4 times of weekly visit of 23km ride in Polloc Port, I can feel that my stamina and endurance in pedaling have a dramatic improvement.

In my 4th visit, I've noticed that I didn't take too much water, not too much rest, and can pedal with higher gears in uphills. I'm so happy with my improvements, even though I know I'm not strong enough, every weekend I train hard like they always say, "don't limit your challenge, challenge your Limits."

Last sunday, I made my fastest road record of 51km/hr as we descend in Pahm Resort, and I maintained a 32km/hr as we ride back home.

Lesson I've Learned for better mountain biking!

1. If you have to ride across a questionable creek, first, make a friend go first. hahahaha! Second, take your gloves off. Nothing sucks more than falling over and submerging half your body in a cold creek...other than doing so with your gloves on, so will end up shaking!

2. No part of a trees tastes good.

3. Always bring cash.

4. Lower your saddle when you go downhill.

5. When exploring and "adventure riding", it is usually advisable to check the map before you get lost hundreds of feet along Trails.

6. A compass is a lot more useful in your pack rather than in the House.

7. Always check your water Container before leaving the House.

8. Cheap bikes are probably not meant to function as monster bike in the trail.

9. Always wear your Brain damage protection, gloves and shoes.

10. Bring sando bags or sacks for fruits or anything you may find along the way. hahaha.

11. Wear your arm warmer or long sleeve jersey in extreme temps.

12. Focus on the path, not in the obstacle.

13. Learn from your mistakes, when you fall take a moment to analyze what went wrong. Figure it out, so that it wont happen again.

14. Focus on the hill in front you, not the entire Hill.

15. Use the brain, for proper Mountain Biking process, formula: Stop + think + formulate a plan + Execute the Challenge = Success!

Level up...

I'd Rather be mountain biking because a bad day on the trail is still better than a good day at the office.. My mountain bike addiction has brought me into a Higher level.. kumbaga sa drugs, di lang basta adik, kundi talamak na. hahaha actually meron pang another level, ung may sayad na. hahaha.

Saturday Morning we were greeted with a pretty hot sunny morning, Tolits and Jay-R forced me to join Them at the trails in Tenorio, Lomboy, Dimapatoy and Broce Area. at first, the run seemed to go pretty well, but for me, as a newbie rider, its was a disaster! I never thought that the trails are so inclined and rocky as hell! whew! and if you go downhill, the trails are also so declined full
of rocks and lost gravels, so its very slippery when you apply too much brakes,so just let the bike go free fall and enjoy the momentum, I'd almost call all saints I know! Its the first craziest and extreme ride Ive ever done, I got nervous but my Adrenaline rush helps me keep pedaling. for me its a hard "duathlon", there are some uphill parts of the mountain that I have to push my bike. I got Crash, luckily I've got no bruises or broken bones, I'm so happy that I made to navigate through those unimaginable rough terrains.its One hell of a ride, one of my best experience.

These Trails was recently used for tournaments, it demands the ultimate skill from the riders, who can maneuver their bikes extremely well. it demands a great physiological challenge. Obviously, These trails with variety of dangerous obstacles are for experts, and I'm so Proud that a beginner like me have Survived!

What a fantastic weekend! :lol:
