It feels like... Fers Day all over again

"Fers year, fers years... over here Fers years."

Now when did I hear that before?

Anyhow, after a week of rest... it feels like First Day all over again. But somehow something's not right. It's not just that it feels like First Day, it feels much like First Year all over again. Ahahaha~

Moreover, something like new... out-of-the-box experience.

===

Anyhow something related to cycling... since I'm just fresh out from a fatigue-like stress-related sickness... epic-cycling rides going to be a no-no for me till the next few weeks.

And with my mind set to try out trail-running and to start training for competitions. Starting this Sunday, I'll be back on the saddle... and build up some stamina for new and upcoming races. But unlike before, in which I spent most of my time on the saddle... I'll be mix-and-matching my training with some stretching, running, trekking and possibly get-my-ass back to the gym and continue my taekwondo lessons.

Feb 27, 2011 - "K.K.K. REVOLUTION 2011 : We Want Bike Lanes Now"

With the overpopulation of roads in the metro, especially reigned by gas-guzzling vehicles. We the pedestrians as well as us cyclists are being pushed aside from using our public roads.  And with result are numerous accidents such as sideswipes and crashes just to name a few.

I myself experienced sideswipes during my daily commutes to work and to the local trails, and most of these are caused by reckless automobile drivers and motorcyclists.

And to solve one of these problems are implementing "Bike Lanes".

Marikina and Davao already done it... why not make it metro wide, or country wide. If not, we can start small... one by one.

Let us unite and be heard. Let us join tomorrow's event. Wear and strap your helmets, and take out and ride your bike, and let the public know of our presence.

Come and Join

With the least chance of me getting on the saddle tomorrow (especially leading the UST Gruppo Tomasino, and riding along Team Ageless Warriors)... I'm supporting the event with any chance possible. And with that, I volunteered to be an Event Photographer for the said event.
