I was one of the 200+ mountain bikers who joined the newbie ride of Philmofo’s Maarat Rampage held last Sunday, May 1 at Shotgun Trail. To give you a brief profile of the trail, Shotgun Trail is one of the famous trails in San Mateo given its perfect view of Metro Manila and Sierra Madre Mountains. And, one of the steepest trails in North near Manila.
I hydrate, stretch and share few sachets of Bodivance to some mountain bikers.

We applied Bodivance together before hitting Shotgun Trail to see if it works 🙂
“BODIVANCE is an all-natural formulation that creates a thermogenic effect on the applied areas. This increases the circulation to exercising muscles, resulting in a more effective workout. It also accelerates warm up and recovery time, making exercise easier while reducing the risk of aches, cramps and muscle pulls”
I don’t have some advanced bike computers like Garmin Edge 500 and Polar CS600x to check the exact elevation, however, the trail could be describe approximately 45 degrees elevation, paved road is sharp and steep.
felt a slight heat on my legs at the middle of the ride.
I finished the whole stretched of the ride without getting leg cramps. After Shotgun Trail, we biked “The Wall” where our free soup is waiting 😉 at Biker’s Cafe.
