Tonight, I will be preparing for our 3-day epic ride from Davao to Cagayan de Oro. Just got the attackcdo.org decals, bought extra long valve CST interior, and got my salary! Deposited some cash then checking emails, updating some of my online events here in an internet cafe here in Divisoria before getting busy. I will be bringing some shirts, jerseys, bike gears, sleeping bag and keep 'em all in my awesome black Nike bag bought from divisoria night market a year ago.
Tomorrow, we will be leaving before sunrise to Quezon, Bukidnon where Cocoy Neri, a klub comrade, will be expecting us and show us this place where we could do some wall climbing and swimming in a spring. We will be having lunch there too! Sheep yeah! *hopefully if buhi pa ang karnero or we'll end up karne sa iro*
By night, we will be arriving Davao and spend our night there.
Friday, our bike journey begins. Setting up some light reflectors for an early morning take off from Davao then at some point, I am thinking of the ascends before reaching the Overview. It'll be awesome! We won't be riding at night so we will have to stop at Cocoy's place again for an overnight.
Saturday, bike ride to Cagayan de Oro. A route with more descends compare to Davao-Quezon. I've been to Malaybalay twice and biking from the city to Kisolon Terminal was actually no-sweat probably because of the cold wind from a 60kph bike speed. Thinking of the ascend in Mangima at noon would be one of the challenges in this epic ride. Traffic, buses, cars, smokes are expected.
Bukidnon as it's one of my favorite biking/tripping/visiting place in the planet, have been a magical place and even before when I was a kid, I have been visiting these places with my late mom as she enjoys collecting some orchids from Bukidnon.
As a cross-country mountain biker who have been travelling for 9 months now with my Rina the Rincon Giant hard tail bike, this epic ride surely be something that I'll be proud of. A story that I am gonna share to the whole world. A ride that will unveil paths and crossing different adventures in my life.
