Hi Guys! Im not good at words also but this is how i witnessed it. The whole story goes like this. Boy Seacid asked me to go with him and Yukon to witness the handing of the bike to Alibangbang, didnt know there were some adjustment a or tweaking to be done. Dragunov( Pete) was so busy sourcing out some parts to finish the bike, Even took out the chain from his bike. The usual adjustments and the bike was done. Lito the partner of Alibangbang, made him run from Cogeo to UP reasoning it's for training and they will share the bike. The guy even race earlier and arrived wearing crocs for running. Halimaw talaga. I asked him about the 24hr race and he said things like it could have been a nice race or him getting a nice standing, about the 12 hr race if he's joining too?
ME: Do you have a helmet? I advocate safe cyling.
Alibang2: I will borrow sir.
Me: Ok! use this, it's yours, that's from bm5er.
Alibang2: (wondering) are you sure sir?
Me and everyone: Yeah its yours!
Me: Do you have a bike for the race?
Alibang2: I will borrow sir.
Pete and everyone: Here, It's yours.
Alibang2: Dont worry sir, i'll take care of the bike and return it soon.
Everyone: NO!!! its yours.
Alibang2: Are you kidding me? Binibiro nyo ba ako?
Everyone: No it's yours! and then Tofi started explaining everything to him.
The guy was in tears and the handing of the bike was just in time coz he is facing so many difficulties in life at this point of his time. You all made this guy look at the bright side.
We should thank Lito the partner of alibang2 for being gracious to him, he shared his 2nd prize winnings to alibang2 despite not getting anything from us. He was even returning the sponsored registration fee for both of them. Lito could've bag the 1st place if not for his fully rigid bike which is so hard to use during the night run. Thanks to all who made this happen.
1. All P M T B pitching in to let a brother biker get his dream bike 2. Pete removing his chain from his bike to give to EA 3. Edgar making his drama script happen in giving EA the helmet and the bike...idol!
aint you all proud to be P M T B !

EcoRescue/Firefly Brigade The fireflies have fled the city because they couldn't stand its dirty air. All of us cyclists, pedestrians, commuters, even those who ride cars who live, work and raise families in the city may suffer the same fate. We also risk disappearing like the fireflies." Why resign ourselves to this fate? We have a choice. We can fight for clean air and bring the fireflies back.
Whew! I was reading the narratives when my sight became blurry due to tears. Money can't buy those smiles from him. Let the true spirit of Christmas remain in our hearts! Congrats guys! God bless! Mabuhay PinoyMTBiker!
Until mountain biking came along, the bike scene was ruled by a small elite cadre of people who seemed allergic to enthusiasm. ~Jacquie Phelan

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.

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.
