    Bike rental sa Tagaytay/Batangas/Santa Rosa

    Kamusta mga kabayan!

    Vacation sa Pinas sa Pasko, yehey! Sa bandang Santa Rosa kami lulugar, at gusto sanang maki-ride sa mga trails. Siguro paikot ng Taal, may trail ba doon?

    Meron kayong referral para sa mountain bike rental?

    Salamat in advance.

    kabayan,

    Sabak bike shop is located in Santa Rosa. Nice LBS and they have good selections of mountain bikes. Give them a call and you could ride with them. They have trail rides, i think 3 days a week. They are excellent riders and they will take you to different trails around Santa Rosa and Tagaytay. The Holy trail is the best in Tagaytay...i don't if that trail still exist. But the tail will start at Tagaytay market then it goes down all the way down to Taal lake. You need to shuttle once you reach Taal lake or do it as epic loop trail
    ride.

    Goodluck and take care

    If it's a small frame or a dualie (that can be disassembled), try a balikbayan box...

    Johnny Air Cargo. I've done it several times. That is the only way to send your bike stuff safe and fast.

    HI,

    I just want to share our ride in one of the best trails near Metro Manila, The Sta. Ines Trails in Tanay Rizal:

    20+ River Crossings (One Way) and Magnificent Falls at the End!! We started at 9:30 am and we reached the falls at 2:30 pm, we rode back at 3:30 and we reached the trail head at 7pm! The trail is called Sta. Ines Trails, it is in Tanay Rizal, around only 25kms from Marikina City, Metro Manila.

    Great thread -- I am a eastern US based Pinoy, frame builder and long time bike racer. I am hopefully going to travel there late 2010 to visit family, mostly in Baguio. I am really psyched to see such a good scene -- cannot wait to check you guys out!

    Greetings from a fellow Ilonggo. Either she's from the south central towns or the northern part of Iloilo. Nice hiking trails (save for the occassional encounter with the NPA).

    Sadly to expensive to haul our rig back home with the ridiculous excess baggage prices! I am thinking of sending most of my bike by Balikbayanbox and bring the frame/ fork along as a checked in baggage next time.

    Yo mga kababayan... SJ and I will be home in Feb for 3 weeks (staying in Marikina). Are there any new trails that we should try? We'll be doing the usual La Mesa and Shotgun/Maarat loops but are there any new trails (I haven't tried the Fort yet) that are a must do?

    Couple of video clips from Sagada, Mt Province, posted to YouTube by a friend who visits now and then... might call it a "must do", long trip but worth it!

    I just want to confirm. Someone mentioned Johnny Air. What's the best way to get a bike to the PI? Bike box, then ship via Johnny Air? LBC? What's the charge/fee? Has anyone tried taking it on a plane? I'm moving back to the PI soon and I wanted to get some info on this. Thanks!

    From El Paso, Texas

    Kalak,

    I'm from El Paso, Texas...i rode some of your trails aready. My GF has families in Wylie and Carrolton. I always hit Rowlett and Grapevine whenever I visit Dallas. I've been to Cedar Hill, Johnson State park, Mc Kinney state park and St Jo trail. My GF's brother-in- law rides MTB also and he hits Rowlett creek all the time.

    I'll be in Dallas this weekend and will try to ride Grapevine. PM me if you want to ride this Saturday.

    DFW rides

    Takenbybikes,

    I was in Dallas last week and your city got hit by snow blizzards. BRRR.

    I'm from El Paso, Texas and do rides your trail whenever i'm in Dallas. I hit RCP and
    Northshore always...very nice trails. Where is OCP trail located at? I have a friend in Wylie and he rides RCP always since he is about 9 miles away from that trail. PM me and i'll give you his phone number. I told him about you and he is glad to have a friend to ride with.

    We are planning to ride the Arkansas Womble trail this Memorial day...that will be the Memorial weekend. DORBA is the one sponsoring the MTB camp tour that weekend and
    we might join them. Womble trail is all singletrack about 39 miles one way and located inside a forest national park.

    Bit of singketrack in the Cordillera mountains, in north Luzon... high altitude, cool temperatures. Some is smooth and flowy, like this:

    PMTB I can understand as they are quite strict there but you must have done something really bad to be banned at Philmofo. There are others but they don't enjoy the traffic of the two mentioned above. Sometimes weeks pass before a thread or post comes up.

    It will cost you around $200. Depending on the overall size of the box.

    No. They're actually marked up compared to bikes in the States. They do sell very cheap hardtails in Quiapo, but they're relatively heavy.

    I beg to disagree. If you do your research, you can get genuine FS bikes in RP at prices equivalent to US SRPs, if not cheaper. If ever there is a mark up, it wouldn't be too much (as low as a couple thousand pesos).
    Geographically, we are just a stone's throw away from where most of the bikes are built/assembled (Taiwan).
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    I stand corrected, then. That was just an observation from looking at frames for sale at Quiapo and Cartimar (and forget about getting sticker-shocked at the Fort). In 2010, a Blur LT frame was priced at 103,000 pesos when they were going for $1800 here during the same period, and even went as low as $900 through Chainlove. I'd love to see these deals, maybe you can show me around next time.
