We have a couple of members from EcoRescue who would like to learn how ro bike commute from Las Pinas to Makati. Anyone out there who is willing to teach them? Not just teaching themn the route but actually teaching how ro commute like the dos and don'ts, proper attire in terms of hight visibility etc..
I would gladly like to teach them only problem is I live near St. Luke's at E. Rodriguez. Salamat.
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.
pren boy! this is for all those gatorades given (and to come!)...
routewise, i have 2 options... #1 lets you get into makati by way of ayala and #2 by way of buendia.
route #1 las piñas-quirino avenue, turn right on kabihasnan road, then left at sucat road heading for intl airport... past the intl airport turn left on naia road, then right on domestic road heading for domestic terminal... past the domestic terminal turn right on andrews avenue heading towards villamor airbase... at the very end of andrews avenue turn left on sales road, crossing ssh and entering fort bonifacio naval station... just past the pa ghq and with the libingan ng mga bayani on your right sales road eventually turns left onto 5th avenue (landmark are the high-end condos)... along 5th avenue turn left at the 1st stoplight, this is mckinley road. continue straight on, crossing edsa onto ayala avenue.
route #2 las piñas-quirino avenue heading for baclaran, straight all the way to naia road... left on naia heading for macapagal blvd (cross roxas blvd), right on macapagal blvd... along macapagal blvd, turn right on buendia, straight on to makati
traffic density wise, both routes get congested at the usual commute rush but, personally, i'd take a new rider through route #2... roads are comparatively wider.
as far as cycle-commute sense is concerned helmets, proper shifting & excellent brakes, a steady hand, and a lot of sentido common is required. personally i recommend blinking white rear lights, not red for night commutes at this part of town.

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.

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

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.
