An epic ride ( 7 11 Tour 500)




The 7 11 tour 500 take it away yesterday which starts in Filinvest Alabang going to Tagaytay City Convention Center. The whole ride was very challenging especially the road going to Tagaytay City which is very difficult because of the continuous uphill track. As the ride begins, the heavy rain pours all the riders including me of course and everyone finding themselves to cover up but me and my buddy got no place to cover so we have no choice but to continue riding. As we approaches on the town proper of cavite, a lot of people shouting and cheer up us which boosted our energy to finish the ride. By the way, this tour should be a fun ride on the first 30km with proper pacing of 15kph to 20kph speed but what happen is that it become like bike race(approx 30kph and up on flat road) because ill see almost every riders pedaling very fast and i got no choice but to stay on their pacing even its too difficult, just got lucky that my feet won't get cramps on the whole ride. When Ive reached the last 9km, I though that it would be very easy going to the finish line but i was wrong. I did'nt expect that it will be the very difficult part on the tour because the road going up is to stiff as in. I did some stop and take a short rest to regain my energy. I continue to ride and at last I did it, I 've reached the finsh line. (yey!). That was the most rewarding part and i feel very proud of myself.

I thought that ride was over and we can go back to Alabang with the truck as soon the program finished. But there is a problem, my co-rider still on the road and im thinking what happen to him or is he still struggling going up on the stiff road. I try to call him up to ask if he still ok or need help but no answer. I did some text and at last he took reply on me saying that he still up and can still finish the ride so I did wait him. The program come to an end and everyone starts packing up and the truck also starts loading all the riders. The 2 trucks left without us and as they leave, im thinking if we had still have enough energy going back to Alabang. My rider friend reaches the finish line and the challenge awaits us of riding going down( whatta, another 60+km again!). We rest a little bit and start to pedal with few energy flowing us(Bahala na!..lolx!). Heavy rains, traffics on downtown, stiff road again, slippery road due to heavy rains, sore knees and lost track due to unfamiliarity on some roads are the few challenges we've encountered going back to alabang . Beyond all this difficulties, we've still manage our selves to keep alive (lolx!) and finish an over 130km+ total ride. Thank God for helping and guiding everyone of us throughout the whole tour. Rock on bikers! ..See yah on next tour...^_^
Here are some pictures I've taken.
