Almost everyone of us has ridden the trails of the Sta. Rosa Area...
And almost after every ride, there is this particular place in Paseo de Sta. Rosa where we go and kinda award ourselves with mouth watery local cuisines where some eat managely just a bit and for others like me... I feast on 3 orders of rice and a good bowl of Pork Sinigang... ;D ;D ;D
what about you guys... what do you people preffer as a little consolation for finishing a day of off road riding with your rigs....

At sta Rosa none , because I have to pedal back to Los Banos and there, 1 whole Sr. Pedro chicken hehe
" When I'm eating,that's all I think about / If I'm on the march, I just concentrate on marching / If I have to fight,it will be just as good a day to die as any other / If you can concentrate always on the present,you'll be a happy man " - the Camel Driver
For me the reward of finishing every Sta Rosa Ride is to pig out. No regrets stuffing in thousands of calories because Sta Rosa trail takes a lot from riders and make them go very very hungry.
Lotsa turo-turos to choose from:
There is that corner at Sta Rosa market where I indulge in sizzling platters of Blue Marlin steaks, sisig, and assorted seafood.
There is chicken inasal at the back of Sabak.
Not to mention usual fastfood chains like ChowKing and Jollibee at Paseo.
Brewed coffee can be had at Figaro across the Paseo.
I used to enjoy beef kababs at that drive in rest stop by SLEX. Last time I visited Sta Rosa, that eaterie place closed shop na. I also order Starbuck's brewed coffee 'to go' in same drive-in SLEX rest stop. I take either Figaro or Starbuck's brewed coffee as perk up fuel so I can drive back home to Farview 60 kms away.
We used to pig out on fishballs and turon saba and crab balls circa 2004-2006 at that midpoint sari-sari store a kilometer away after bukohan. Forgot the name of the sari-sari store and the 'ale' catering to us classic PinoyMTBiker. Last time I passed by her place, she was nowhere to be found.
Of course Aling Pina Food Hauz is a new addition circa 2006 til present.
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.

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.

oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....

anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.

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.

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.
