Also Mang Ricardo of Team Sandugo... Obviously for his age he isn’t fast anymore but given that he can ride TH trails at his age (and go up and down wall several times in a row), man that is really something in comparison to the young ones!
Thing about the modern age right now is that online videos pressure everyone to be someone else. Heck pro riders had their entire lives dedicated to riding (ie career) hence they can do cool and awesome moves. But for weekend warriors like most, as long as you can beat your previous self and overcome your set realistic goals, you’re good.
Remember, even if you are slow, you are beating every couch potato by a huge gap every pedal stroke you do. An exercise done no matter how short is better than not done at all.

Depends on ones physical constitution, I guess. Some people just age better than others or at least maintain good condition as they grow older.
On my 2nd Guimaras adventure, I was already bonking at the start due to my poor stamina especially for uphills. It should've been easier on cement but there I was lagging behind the group - patigil-tigil pa. While on the last climb trying to catch the group, imagine my surprise when I received a push from another rider. It was my first time to experience that, being push while the other was riding as well. We rested at the peak to another surprise - he offered me a cigarette, not a hint of panting in his breath. And then another... that he is 64 years old.
In Korea 2006, my mostly white ride mates were in their 50s and can still shred. I guess continuously doing what we love helps too. I was forty at the time.

Nice to hear that... I can say that I'm a late cyclist bloomer.. I'm already on my 30's when I purchased my first entry level mountain bike. Looking back, I should've get myself into mountain biking earlier. Oh well, perhaps di pa ganun ka rampant ang mtb way back early 2000's or maybe mga friends ko iba ang trip that time.
In few years, I will reach 40... andun yung dalawang isip if to pursue trails or stick na lang ako sa city biking? haha... Nyway, I enrolled myself to basic mtb trail riding clinic here in my area. Tomorrow yung first day, hopefully not too late to ride like Danny Hart or Matt Jones. Haha.
strand: nag-open siya a few weeks back. located sa loob ng Eugenio Lopez Center, after McDo(to your left when going up Sumulong). naglaunch sila ng Action Sports Hub sa loob ng property.

jumborats: good day mga mamser! tanong lng kung nag reraincoat ba kayo at kng ung poncho type ba o ung 2 piece na coat at pants? bike to work problems...
Aug 5, 2019 9:55:36 GMT 8
simplej0ys: 2-pc ako. May posibilidad na kainin ng kadena o preno ang kapote. Plus, mas madali ako makagalaw pag 2-pc.
Aug 5, 2019 11:02:47 GMT 8
jumborats: exactly sir simplej0ys... salamat sa insights... may nakita akong video na kinain ng angkas sa motor ung kapote. gulong sila sa daan. buti medyo trapik.
Aug 5, 2019 11:13:57 GMT 8
anthrax76: ako, jacket lang. although bihira ko rin gamitin kasi nababasa ako ng pawis sa loob so same lang.
Aug 5, 2019 23:21:46 GMT 8
jumborats: parang nangyari sakin kanina sir anthrax76... nag jacket... di umulan... pawis...
Aug 6, 2019 12:07:05 GMT 8
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.
Aug 9, 2019 11:35:30 GMT 8
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.
