Manila Day Ride is a Century Ride

Century Ride in Tagaytay
125kms - Century Ride

What does century ride means to me? It means patience and determination.

Yes, I made my first century ride for this year in The Manila Day Ride. It was nice to be back in long riding and it won’t be possible without our friendly friends from Padyak Manilenyo and Cambio.

Padyak Manilenyo are mountain bikers from Manila and near by Manila, who I biked with from Manila while, CAMBIO also known as CAvite Mountain BIkers Organization are bikers from the south who led us the way to Tagaytay.

We were 11 bikers when we left Manila at exactly 0415 and on our way, some mountain bikers joined us and rode towards Phoenix Gas Station, Molino, Cavite. Our route to Molino is here:

San Andres St. – Osmena Hi-way – SLEX – West Service Road – Alabang – Filinvest Corporate City – Daang Hari – Molino Road

We were surprised when 16 Cambio came to Phoenix Gas Station in Molino, Cavite to welcomed us and joined the ride. I knew few of them as they are listed in my Facebook friends and met them in some organized rides in Philmofo and races. Our route to Tagaytay:

Molino Road – Paliparan – Salawag – Greenwoods – Silang – Tagaytay

The ride to Tagaytay won’t be complete without seeing the beautiful scene of Taal Lake and its volcano. The ride ends up here and time to return to typical noise and traffic in Manila.

Century rides are known to be long and hard.  Its always challenging and demanding.  Sometimes, it doesn’t matter how hard and long the ride is, as long as you rode it with good friends like these mountain bikers I biked with, long ride is just a piece of cake. 🙂
