They say a picture says a thousand words… so:
WOW… it’s been a while since I posted anything here HAHAHA. I feel guilty – I always told myself that I wouldn’t leave this blog hanging. Oh well… I’m merely human.
Business at work and business with ATTACKmtb stuff hasn’t given me much time to post anything on here aside from the odd blurb and reposts. I had hoped that those would be enough, but it didn’t feel right…
Anyways, I’ll make this a 2 part ‘updater’ on what I’ve been up to… I promise it’ll be interesting because it’s full of photos and videos… if you’re in the mood to read, you’re in luck because I’ll be linking this up to my Enduro Diary on http://www.ATTACKmtb.com
So read on if you’re bored or want to waste time productively (HAHAHA get it?).
Here’s the link to Part III: Educating the Debate Part III
Before you read on though… I’d encourage you to check this video out from BikeRadar.com:
Yes, this again. Seriously, these articles are worth the time if you’re considering wheel size options. I’m honestly still not so sold on a 29er but if I could afford one, I’d get one.. just for the heck of it. They seem fine in straight lines and long sweeping turns, but tight twisty trails? Hmmmm… not so sold yet. Anyone care to lend me a 29er for a significant amount of time? hahaha. That’s a serious inquiry btw.
Anyways, read up. Thanks NSMB.com
Where, oh where? Went back for my second round of reacquainting myself with Timberland’s trails.
Unfortunately for me, they were still pretty much mud pits in a lot of places. Can’t wait to ride here in the summer. Not a bad set of weekends though, if you ask me.
Here are photos from my latest trip up Mt. Maarat…
This week has given us a good crop of videos. And I’m just referring to PinkBike’s published articles (as some of you know I’ve been having Vimeo issues as of late).
I’ve watched each more than twice already. Sinong adik? HAHA.
It’d cool to try this for a weekend eh?
More videos below…
Some people have an aversion to the term ‘light’ or ‘lite’… Coke Light, Light/Lite Beer, etc. Well, in this case, I don’t think it dampened any enthusiasm or excitement.
I’m definitely excited.
Sometimes the best shredits are the ones that just have music and riding… case in point
The bike porn helped make the video that much more enjoyable.
Here’s another that fits the bill
If that 2 minute quickie didn’t get you giddy then we’re not friends.
Watched this five minutes ago. Try to ignore the helmet sales talk at the beginning. The Laguna trails in California are beautiful. I wish trails here (Greater Manila Area) were similar to that.
The trails actually reminded me of Laoag, Ilocos Norte. Not necessarily identical but the characteristics of it – dry, dusty, full of large rocks and nice flowy portions.
I miss those trails.
I want to go back.
I want to bring back the stoke.
Sadly for me, I wasn’t able to go out into the mountains this past weekend. I had planned on doing so – wanting to log a significant amount of km’s (or stokeage), but alas the spirit was willing, but the body was weak. Seriously weak. Wasn’t feeling in tip top shape when I woke up – plus I needed to rush home after the ride so I decided to err on the side of caution by staying in bed. I just tried to make the most of the day by visiting La Mesa Eco Park with my nephew.
No water bottles required! More like no more money to buy water! HAHA. It wasn’t the trail ride I had in mind, but it’ll do Better than nothing I’d say – plus there was this sweet downhill section that was rocky enough to get me giddy. More pictures after the jump…
