Jun Camua loves long rides but his senior friends are not always available for these trips. He joins younger bikers from time to time to check if he still got that youthful energy.
“Kinakaya ko naman. Hindi naman ako nagpapa-iwan sa pacing nila,” he said. “Thank you sa mga young bikers, dahil sa kanila kaya nararating ko ang mga medyo malalayong lugar.”
Our lolo biker here is from Malolos, Bulacan and he has been to far places like Monasterio de Tarlac, Minalungao National Park in Nueva Ecija, Tagaytay’s Sky Ranch and Mt. Arayat in Pampanga.
He told us that he loves doing solo rides too. His weekly goal is to have two short rides that would sum up to not less than 100 km and one long ride on weekends.
“Madalas akong mag-solo ride para feel na feel ko ang pagba-bike. Nakakapag-selfie ka at nakakakuha ka ng pic ng magagandang view,” he said. “Hindi ka pressured sa pagpadyak dahil solo rider ka lang.”
Jun pointed out that what he likes about group rides is the camaraderie. Everyone leaves together and goes back complete, no one is left behind.
His tip for the young bikers?
“Behave dapat sa road and please follow road rules,” Jun said.
