Tagaytay – Talisay- Sungay

February 8, 2015

Every century ride I take is a test of my physical limits. Though it was unfortunate that the recon ride didn’t push through, I joined another ride. While this was 130km and ended quite early, this is by far the most challenging route for me…while the view is something to die for, getting there has […]

The stock 7 speed cogs with its 14T/28T is ideal for city biking and […]
