When I logged back in on Facebook late in the morning the image at the left was what greeted me. But what got my attention was the caption of the image poster (in all capital letters): “Pusang hilaw!!!!! Hinampas ako ng baril sa may paakyat ng Shotgun at ninakawan ako at kaibigan ko! (<Expletive>!!!!! I [...]
Evening of Feb. 17, 2012, my phone beeped. “Where are we riding tomorrow?”
That’s the text message I received from Frank, my long-time riding buddy.
We both got back on the saddle at the start of this year.

Another impromptu decision was made as we approached the corner that leads to the top part of the Maguyam trail.
“Diyan sa kanto na yan papuntang Maguyam trail (That’s the corner that leads to the Maguyam trail),” Doc told me as we pedaled towards it.
Then a light bulb flashed on.

Last week plans were made with Tugel for a Cardiac Hill climb in Sta. Rosa today. The whole day Monday not a word was heard from him. I was looking forward to this ride as I haven’t been riding lately — not by choice. Weather’s been $#!t.
Monday night I sent out a text to Tugel [...]
“Wanna do Tagaytay tomorrow?”
That’s the message I got from John. I verified if he was thinking of pedaling all the way to Tagaytay. He said yes. So I started wondering what the heck he has eaten.
