Kumusta na kabayan

Kumusta na kayong lahat. As you can see with my name, pinoy na pinoy (actually GI na GI). Use to ride a lot when I was young (and foolish) in our little province of Zambales, now starting to get back into riding again in Pacific Northwest. Currently, riding an old Specialized Allez 24 (yard sale special), but saving some money to get to something like TRANSITION or Allez Elite Compact.

Nice jersey, but I'm not into that yet. For now, long sleeve shirt with baggy shorts will do. Its good to be back riding again. My 11 year old daughter got me started and we found out that their is a 16 miles of blacktop trail not far from my residence.

Hi there everyone! I'd like to know if there's anyone into mountain biking here? I'm kinda new so I sure would appreciate some help in setting up my first mountain bike. I used to ride a BMX but now I've grew an appreciation for mountain biking. I'm from Iloilo and the terrain around Western Visayas are very competitive. Thanks!

I might be going to the PI in May (Lucban) and was wondering what the prices of jerseys are compared to the States. A decent jersey here is about $50 US.

I was going to ask our local pinoy rider in the Phil about that one but Chrome got ahead of me. My niece is going home this christmas, it would be cool to have one of those with philippine flag on the left sleeve.

Hello Lakay! Where in the pacific northwest are you? Am in South King County, WA. Just recently took up cycling, and am superambitioning the STP one day ride. Any idea of others who are also interested? If so forming a paceline group for the event would be super...a pinoy group no less!

Kumusta Zen, I reside in Marysville area and ride in Centennial Trail or Highway 9 when weather permits. That is also my long range plan to ride STP and maybe MS Whatcom/Skagit.

Mabit naman Lakay....I live in the Kent area....a short ride away from Soos Creek Trail (a mere 6 mile stretch compared to your Centennial). Am building up a contingent and logistics support for the STP one day ride in 2008. Interested in joining?

Thanks, tinangal ko yung aero bars. Nakatago for the mean time, I probably put it back this spring and try it. The weather has been really sh*tty here in the PacNorWest, so mileage doesn't add up that much.

A bit bumpy due to a lot of potholes. I pass by Polo near Obando then enter Mcarthur Highway. Highway is Ok but a lot of jeeps and trucks. I still havent reached Pampanga but Im exploring the trails as well. Lots of resorts and you will need mudguards a lot of wet roads. But this route is mostly roads but will check some trails. I saw one forum that had pictures of their bulacan ride Im trying to find that place where there are streams and countryside feel.

any pinoy bikers

Opo, pinoy ako, pero dito ako sa Germany. Kasama ako sa Squadra Messageri FFM local cycling-club.
I'd like to do some cycling in the Philippines on my next vacation. I have family in Pangasinan near Urdaneta.

sorry guys for not answering sooner. been busy. active on another cycling forum as well.

anyways;

foldbike: you're best bet would probably be christy's bike shop. that's where i saw the 15k folding bike. the cheaper ones are also available -- that's around 5 - 7k.

zen_ride: i'm not really sure since its new and i'm a shimano-leaning-towards-campy kind of guy. but i can ask around if you want.

jaythemessenger: pre, try and visit pinoyroadies.org. a lot of us are there. what kind of bike are you riding? i'm a lurker of the singlespeed/fixed gear thread here...

to the one asking about local jerseys, the good ones go from 950 to 1.2k in philippine pesos. so roughly around us$ 21 to us$30.
