    No worries buddy, di naman, specially in our trails in Sta Rosa Laguna/Silang Cavite na very friendly mga tao, we feel very secured, specially people there look forward to seeing celebrities/Professional sports personalities who rides there.... and medyo double security lang at home like putting chain locks and securing the garage door. Very rare naman ang bike na nananakaw dito sa atin...

    Typical riding day in the Philippines

    I just would like to share some Pictures how a typical riding day goes in the Philippines.... I was with the group of riders.. SABAK BOYS ... they are the ones who discovered most of the trails in Santa Rosa, Silang Cavite and Tagaytay some 11 years ago... It is always a blast riding with them... Never to worry about some minor or even major repairs of bike while in the trail... they will have some special tools and damn.. they have der hangers available ... We went the other side goin to Palace in the Sky now popularly known as Reverse Palace ( this was discovered by John and Ricky sometime November 2006 while training for a race).. This epic ride have some great views that we would like to share with our kababayans....

    To the destination

    This one is Liliput... named after Tony B (bastos)... because inside the trails there are obstacles of Coffe trees and tall guys have a hard time speeding because they might bump their heads... and Tony B is the fastest in this trail because of his height

    There are various trails in Sta Rosa, composed technical and easy trails... you can go to Paseo and from there you will see friendly mtbikers in the parking lot, and you can hook up with them for sure

    Great to see you guys!

    Well, as a former gringo Sabak rider recently relocated back to the USA, all I can say is I miss the riding, and I miss my friends. Suburban DC hell just doesn't have anything close to the single track within 20 minutes of Manila. Who'd of thunk it???? So to all the folks - Ricky, Tony, Tony, Anthony, Boy, Gini, Tyrone, Teddy, and all the rest - greetings from USA and do come visit. We got spare rooms for you, and crappy riding.

    Ey Darius! this is Tyrone, How is it going there my friend? hope everything is well on your side. Its indeed great to hear from you.. It has been raining here and we have been doing mostly reverse Palace ride for the recent weeks.... its good to hook up with you here in MTBR Yeah 20 minutes ride going to the trail is definitely a blast, isnt it? but in 2 years time were riding here again, arent we?.... for sure there will be trails that we have explored by then... lets keep in touch and I will send you my email... Please extend regards to Miriam from Me and Ginny... I will surely tell to the Sabak crew that we hooked up here in MTBR...

    Hi Y'all,
    I'll be in the PI for a few weeks this X-Mas and we're looking for a nice resort in Palawan with good snorkeling and a nice beach. El Nido or Coron area would be preferrable. Any suggestions?
    Thanks!
    Gary

    El Nido Lagen resort would be a better choice since it is more mainstream , you have a good resort and pretty good beach with facilities and a nice snorkelling area in front of the resort . Coron is more of a scuba diver's destination due to the wreck diving sites , and not much going for it in terms of postcard type beaches .

    Boracay would be good option but come December it can be too jam packed , Alona beach in Bohol is a nice stretch of white beach with a few good resorts but not as commercial as Bora

    geographic infos

    hey guys!!! mga kababayan!!!

    i've been reading this thread quite some time already, i live here in SoCAL (Los Angeles). i hope you can help me too. i'm looking for some trails which is close to the San Gabriel Mountains here, climb around 10-20miles (16-32km) with elevation gain of around 3000' - 4000' and down to nice technical singletracks. will be going home (Pasig) for my much awaited vacation.

    i hope you guys with better geographic info can help me. thanks guys!!!

    So Cal trails/San Gabriel are

    Schumi,

    I will recommend to do Strawberry trail, high above Angeles Park (?). I rode that trail 6 years ago, lots of climbing and majority are singletrack. Check out Chino Hills state park
    along Highway 60. Whiting Ranch along I-5. San Juan trail off I-5 also, that's 20 +miles
    of pure singletrack and once you reach the top...close your eyes and bomb down you go.
    Fullerton Loop, a nice inside the city mountain bike trail. I think it's just under 10 miles, but
    a good place to exercise. Fullerton Loop is along 60 also. Have you heard of Seven Sister trail? Another trail along I-5, very closed to Whiting Ranch (i forgot the name) and a park along Laguna beach (I forgot the name also), a driving distance possibly from your house.

    I'm going to LA next month and i'll take my bike...let's hook up and ride Strawberry Trail.

    PS-try to ride San Juan Trail, just singletrack and so many switchbacks.

    the other way around

    i'm pretty much familiar with the trails you mentioned,,,but my point is the other way around. trails in my beloved Philippine Islands, that's close to the San Gabriel Mountains that i normally ride. my wife's province is in Orion, Bataan and i'm focused on going at Mount Samat, anybody rode that area??? no "nice people around" (NPA) anymore, if yes are they friendly now???

    how about trails in Olongapo area??? anybody??? just gonna concentrate in one region, for all we know, PI really got really nice trails that the entire MTB community is not aware of. enjoy the ride guys.

    BTW, akazan...haven't been in that area for a while. i'm not sure if the trail is being maintained. the last time i went there was last year (Jan 07) up to josephine's peak, got into a bad fall 'cos of the icy trail. trail down to colby canyon (i think), which the singletrack got bunch of landslides, some hike a bike. PM or email me when you're in the area. thanks dude!!! happy trails!!!

    MTB in Viva Las Vegas

    If any of you Pinoys are visiting Vegas, BootLeg Canyon is alot of fun. Maraming trails from novice to expert to bike parks

    - First pix (BootLeg1.JPG) is on my diamondback coil doing some laim jumps.
    - Anak ko in Red (BDRace1.JPG) on our 1st MTB race @ Blue Diamond Park.
    - If in Cider City, UT, try out Brain Head Ski Resort fro some DH fun (BrianHead1.JPG)
    - Just upgraded to an Iron Horse Hollowpoint (mk3_rt.JPG)

    This Sat, we'll hit Mt. Charleston Ski Resort in North Las Vegas. Mabuhay ang MTB!

    bootleg canyon is the best place to go. you can find all sort of trails from DH, CC, and even for novice as what pareng balot said. you won't get lost, because of the big sign on the slope "BC". will be there again maybe next spring. i hope i'll be fit enough to climb and down to some of that technical singletracks.

    I would start @ BootLeg Canyon, lots of trails. Here's the ultimate ride my buddies did last week. Too bad I couldn't go:

    Start doing "Mother" to "West Leg", to "Caldera" clockwise, up "Boy Scout", down "Girlscout", out "Middle Loop" to "Upper Loop" down to "Lower Loop" and then back out the "Middle Loop". They said that makes about 15 miles.

    Mabuhay ang MTB!

    Thanks for posting pics pareng balot, your loop seem to be cool to ride and at 15 miles (around 24 km ) that is a good work out as well... great to hear that MTB is exciting in your area

    Hey Schumi,
    Hope you have a better luck findind trails and mtbikes to ride with when you visit home. I tried to get in touch with filipino mtbikers looking for good trails at home on this site but no luck. Anyhow, I was out in Ozamis City with a local downhiller and was able to ride his local trails almost 2 years ago. Here are some pics. I am coming back home again this January and will hook up with Renax from BIKE LAB, which is a freeride/dh shop in Cagayan De Oro. Fly to cagayan from Manila if you can and ride with this crew they do shuttles on weekends.

    No DH run for me

    sorry to say bro, i'm not a downhiller...i love trail riding (cardio baby!!!), climbing fire roads and look for some technical singletracks. got no plans to go home this year 'cos just got my baby las nov '06. '08 or '09 will be a good year though. i'm just planning ahead and put it into my agenda. i'll try to hook up with some local riders. but as of now, i'm just doing 2x a week ride because of some babysitting duties and household chores. currently riding locally at my favorite place, the San Gabriel Mountains. got bunch of local trails here and good singletracks down.
