I woke up around 3:00 am this morning. Because of the brown out in our place. Waited till 4:00 am before electricity come in. Got off my bed around 4:20 am and head for MINISTOP Escolta for breakfast. Leave Chowking San Mateo and got home around 11:00 am
those are some of my fantastic shots on my storm solo flight ride. I got alot of fantastic experience there being blown by wind and being water blast by the rain. going there and back, I got several flood crossings and temperature there is extremely cold. there are fogs all over Timberland. thats why I didn't push thru giant. But don't worry I am still a survivor of this storm.
And I will be back. and conquer Giant again in my part 3 of the maarat solo flight ride. I didn't make it now but I prove to myself that I am a monster. fighting storms and coming back in one piece. ;D ;D ;D

water blasting and gusty winds. have no match for this monster. I will be back with my success to Giant in Part 3 of my Maarat solo Flight. By the way, I didn't see any flying roof and uprooted trees but falling mangoes that is and slapping leaves.

going uphill there at the wall is easy but going down is hard due to the strong winds and water blasting rain. it make my norco slide sideways. but the experience is unforgetable. If you go up in this stormy weather a weight winnie bike won't work. you will be just blown away by the wind. the test is proven that my bike is still light weight. but it proves effective in storm attack. the feeling is amazing. my body is like being freeze. I feel no pain, no cramps, not tired and strong. one i reach Ka tobias, the pressure in my body changes. after that once i got down to the columbury my ears started to pop like a pop corn due to the changes of elevated pressure. But I still Out Wit, Out Play, Out Last: Survivor Maarat ;D
Note: weight winnie bikes are good for racing not for storm attack and workout ride.
First time ever to read a review of MT Bike and Fork done at the height of onslaught of Storm Signal #3. This one should land on some pages of MTB Magazine. I was not surprised with bike performance but the rider never failed to stunned me with his way of pushing his ability to the limits. brad - Safety is simple as ABC - Always Be Careful....

What a HALIMAW, floods all over metro manila, strong winds and rains mmmm maybe next time I can hear testride china bike climbing the wall hahaha ;D ;D
The brain is such a fragile organ, do not subject the skull to repeated trauma...
Translates into: Wag gayahin si Charlie (those who are watching this, do not do this ever!)
These stunts are done by professionals, with years of training and experience!)
P.S. Stay away from leaves also... Stay posi !
P.P.S. This Chivas Regal ride is sponsored by Taba! Thank you!

Holy cow ... I've tried biking at MOA during typhoon signal #2 and I I got blown by the wind backwards and sideways no matter how hard I pedal. It was such a scary experience that I would never try to do it again. I certainly won't try doing Maarat during signal #3!
Bow to the naughty professor. We are not worthy!!!
stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

konablack: gamit ko two-piece raincoat, dehins lang sya ideal kung may backpack ka
Aug 13, 2019 7:39:14 GMT 8
oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.
Aug 15, 2019 23:44:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.
Aug 24, 2019 4:32:23 GMT 8
lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

corollafreak: wassup!!! long time no hear dito =D
Aug 27, 2019 15:06:23 GMT 8
stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
Aug 27, 2019 17:54:27 GMT 8
anthrax76: @cf!!! uy kumusta na?
Aug 28, 2019 0:01:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
Aug 28, 2019 0:02:48 GMT 8
konablack: wala na yung parking spot ng firefly brigade doon
