Afternoon Bike Ride at Maarat

Best bud Pol and I had a short bike ride at Maarat. Why short? Because as if in a foot race, I DNFed! My first biking DNF. I wasn’t able to finish the whole trail because at one point as we near the place bikers call Giant, I was already heavily panting and I just gave up.

This is my first time to ride in Maarat and I will say that I may not have prepared myself well for the ride. I was not in 100 percent okay shape. Hay! It should have been my pre-birthday “padjak”. Well… There are regrets but there were more lessons learned. I still had fun though, because the trail that we were able to cover were good and challenging. I have already made a mental note that I will be back there and will be ready for it.
