Our CMR reporter Inoy Africa, submitted the following account as he joined the July CMR to 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.

Top 5 Reasons You'll Never Regret Having a Bicycle

There are many uncertainties in life and when we happen to choose the wrong option, we usually regret that decision and try to rectify, if possible the wrongs we have committed because of them.  You might be at a crossroads now and you are having a hard time deciding which way to go; ahead of you are mostly uncertainties that could lead to either disasters or happy endings.  We believe that if you choose to buy a bicycle for whatever purpose, the results can only be delightful; you are in for a wonderful experience on two wheels.

Here below are the top 5 reason why we are sure you will never regret buying a bicycle for yourself and a loved one:

5 Things You Need to Stop Doing While Biking

bike downOne of the things that make cycling so enjoyable is that it gives you a sense of freedom and power. You can pedal till you drop and at the end of the last kilometer, no one will tell you you’re crazy except the non-initiated non-cyclists. However, as with any enjoyable, powerful things, there should be moderation and as Stan Lee would say it through Spiderman’s Uncle Ben, with power comes great responsibility. There are certain things that no one should do while cycling – not on the road or off-road, and certainly not while you’re trying to navigate through Metro Manila’s crazier than the gods of loon’s streets. Here are five things that no cyclist should ever think of doing:
