    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...
