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.

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.

As soon as I found out about the car not being available for the race I sent a text message to Togs. I need a ride to the race.
His Mitsubishi Adventure can comfortably fit 3 persons, [...]
