Okay fine, I don’t. At least not yet 🙂
Yesterday, I had my first taste of trail biking and I can’t say that I loved it.
Would you love three hours of biking in Timberland Heights‘ muddy, rocky, slippery trail that went up and down forever?
Here’s a recap:
6 AM power breakfast:
8 AM — bike loading time. My bike was placed inside our car ( front wheel dismantled). Hubby’s bike is loaded to his buddy’s car bike rack.
Off to Timberland Heights, San Mateo, Rizal.
After about two hours, we arrived at the Pestano’s House, an al-fresco restaurant in the middle of what felt like no-where.
Hmmm, I have to plan for our midtrail meal next time.
After the meal, there was another hour of biking back to where we started. Thankfully, we passed through an easier path.
Then just about 500 meters before we reached the parking lot, I had a big stumble! There was a big rock and I didn’t know whether to brake or ride through it. I braked and flew forward. OUCH!!! My arms and hands hurt because I tried to break my fall. (Note to self: Study how to fall properly.)
That’s okay. No broken bones.
Finally, I finished! Yay!!
- Did I enjoy trail biking? No, not really, haha! I was tense most of the time. Although admittedly, there were brief moments when I felt young and oh soo alive 🙂
- Would I do it again? YES! So that bike trail cannot say that it reduced me.
Dear Timberland Bike Trail,
That’s the way you want things huh? I’ll be ready for you next time. In fact, NEXT WEEK!
