Timberland in San Mateo Rizal

Posted by raredog in Bike, Motorbike and ... | 06.19.2006 - 10:56 pm

Geely and me was on a journey again. This time we went to a place called Timberland. A very high place indeed, passing to the town of San Mateo Rizal to the hills of Sierra Madre. Up there you could see portions of Marikina, Pasig and Quezon City. I thought Geely won’t make it to the top , bcoz the road there is definitely steep, although it is already cemented. We’re lucky that it was good weather, coz I’m sure it would be very difficult to traverse it when it’s raining and perhaps I would think twice if I would still go up there, hehehe.

We’ll the main reason that we travelled to that place is to watch the mountain bike/hiking endurance race promoted by Men’s Health Magazine. Biking is really one of my favorite sports. I salivated when I saw most of the riders hi-tech (specialized) mountain bikes which are only prototypes in my younger years. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to come early, that’s why I missed the main event and just able to see the awarding ceremony. But anyways, got some photos, breathe some fresh air, admired the scenery, and headed back to base. Going down is another adventure. 😀
