Here in the Twilight, Twilight Zoo

  • Our CMR reporter submitted the following account as he joined the July CMR to the North Side of Manila.

    The peloton found its way to C3, or Araneta Ave, towards Caloocan. It then turned right towards Monumento, left at the roundabout and eventually to Malabon Zoo.

    I am thankful to the person who routed this ride, as I have never been here; have never even heard that a place existed. It was a zoo in the middle of a city. Never mind that you had the other one over at Harrison, because of its namesake, had most animal-loving Manilenos gravitating towards it. Not Malabon.

Here are five things that no cyclist should ever think of doing:
