The only time you should ever look back is to see how far you’ve come.
Seeing the view from afar… the hills, and terrain of which I have rode my mountain bike with gave me that unknown feeling that no words can define. My Ghost MTB went for the first time ever in the trails situated at Barangay Camaguingcing and Harubay, Municipality of Calabanga, Province of Camarines Sur. The venue of the Enduro Lite and Enduro mania organized by Sir Ben and Sir Red, of Enduro CamSur.
I was invited by them through Facebook group Oragon Mountain Bike group. Originally we are only ten (30) participants that has signed up, but the riders that joined were about seventy (70) on the day!
In pictures are my action shots during the stage 1 Funduro:
I fell down hard and painful but I went on and enjoyed the rest of the day! After the stage 1, picture below are my picture smiling even if I have outbalanced myself downhill and feeling some aches in my chest, face, arms and legs!
After the Stage 1, we went uphill for the Stage 2. Going up the trails and seeing how hard it would be for a first timer like me, I decided to not push through. I and along 16 others (Breakaway Group) went on trail ride and ascend hills of Calabanga with our respective rides which was really a pain in the ass but we still went on!
My fellow riders, who fell down and got up stronger!
It was intense adrenaline pumping experience and I am fortunate enough to be with Enduro racers and champs both old and young ones! And fellow newbies like me.
TODAY I knew that with my MTB I can explore more wonders of nature at different places in Bicol. Isarog is nearby and it kept me inspired for my next trail run 🏃🏻♀️, ride 🚴🏽♀️ and climb ⛰!
