Biketas 2013: Night + Early Morning Ride

Travel Period: February 13 - 14, 2013
Destination: Around Davao City

Wednesday Night Ride
February 13, when I decided to join the ride and it was past few weeks since I have joined a night ride for WTF rides. Another reason also was for the test video shot of GoPro Hero 3 Black for the next day which was recently bought by Jason. From home, I traversed Panacan and Diversion Road then Dacudao, Obrero and finally reached Bikerboy. A lot of bikers joined the ride, headcount of 20, 8 from Biketas: Ruel, Ramil, Leojim, Jan Gee, Jason, Raksil, Sherwin and me with special appearance of master Julius. :D

Biketas 2013: Skyline-Mintal-Mulig + Panabo Ride

Travel Period: February 09 - 10, 2013
Destination: Davao City and Panabo City

Downtown To Mintal Via Skyline
February 09, Saturday. We haven't done any bike ride before on this Skyline-Mintal-Mulig route, so I suggested it to the group. As usual, we had our early breakfast at fast food chain and ride out by 6:30am. We traversed Torres St. then to San Rafael Village to reach Maa and finally Diversion Road. A slow ascent on this part up to Las Terrazas, followed with a long descent down to Skyline intersection. We turn right at the junction and traversed Catalunan Grande road up to Skyline proper. Since it's our first time with the trail, we missed to take the shortcut road to Mintal proper instead we traversed a longer loop, it was blessing in disguise because we passed by at DECA Wakeboard park and had our photo ops.

Biketas 2013: Loleng's Revisited Ride

Travel Period: February 02, 2013
Destination: Loleng's Mountain Spring Resort, Davao City

The 2nd Time Around
It was just past 2 weeks since we did my first Loleng's ride last January 19. This was my second time to ride to Loleng's (first choice of the group since its cheap, 100pesos only for entrance fee and swimming pool) and this time, Leojim had his maiden ride with Biketas together with Jason, Ronie and Sherwin while James later joined the ride. Meet up at McDo Bajada around 5:30am, had our early breakfast at Chowking and it was past 6am when we ride out.

Biketas 2013: Night + Loleng's Ride

Travel Period: January 18 - 19, 2013
Destination: Around Davao City and Loleng's Mountain Spring Resort

Friday Night Ride
I usually join Friday night ride in case that there will be a scheduled Biketas ride on the following day. After my duty, I went home to prepare and proceeded to ride bound to downtown for a night ride with CFL and DDS members. From Bikerboy Obrero, we traversed Quimpo Boulevard, Matina Aplaya, Ulas and to Libby Road for a quick break at a spa clinic of Maam Neng Gomez, thanks for the food and accommodation. Then we proceeded to Libby Road head left to Toril but had a left detour shortcut to the main road. From this point we decided to went back to our Jason's office to end the night ride after 3 hours on the road.

Biketas 2013: Canibad Ride via Penaplata

Travel Period: January 13, 2013
Destination: Canibad Beach, Island Garden City of Samal

Puting Bato Plan
Days before the ride, it was planned to reach Puting Bato but it was not materialized during the ride. Let's check out why it didn't happen on my logs below. 6am was the time set for assembly at Sasa 11 wharf for departure to Babak, unfortunately, it was around 7am when the group assembled at the place (well, this is not common, Filipino time). This would be a challenge among members of Biketas to follow scheduled time, maybe next time, whoever cause the delay should treat the group. :p Back on track, we decided to board on  a larger ferry to accommodate our bikes. By 8am, we arrived at the Babak wharf and did a group shot. :D

Friday Night Ride
It was January 11 when we joined the WTF (Wednesday-Thursday-Friday) Rides. I decided to join since I don't have a work by the next day and also the Biketas decided to have a short ride the next morning via reverse Sonshine route. We assembled at Bikerboy around 7pm and decided to ride out minutes after. A total of 19 bikers who joined the ride traversing Agdao, Sasa, Diversion Road, Circumferential Road and around downtown area. Below is the route of the night ride and reverse Sonshine ride with a total of 88kms.
