So let's list down of all the new things I tried so far. "What am I doing in my life" thing is on.
First, I hopped into an awesome sea adventure for Cebu Booze Cruise Sinulog, test my limits on Rock Climbing in Poog, tried the day hiking in Mt. Pinatubo solo and added on my list is Cebu Mountain Bike Trail tour.
Just like when I decided to go for a rock climbing, it only took me days to say "yes" when my friends from my previous work invited me (well, we still have contact and bonding with each other because we built friendship out of work) also it would be great to see them all again and catch up with the latest happenings in each other's life.
It was early as 7AM call time. Cebu MTB Adventure is located at Guadalupe, Cebu City beside Crown Regency Hotel. It was Saturday and the weather was perfect. Gosh, I was a little bit nervous what will be the trail looks like. The last time I had an off roads biking was in my hometown at Southern Leyte when I was in high school. Joshua who organized this tour and said that most of the trails are downhill so no need to worry.
Safety first. We all know it's important to wear protective gears when biking.
Meet the crew!

This is their truck for our transpo to the starting point.
Preparing for our first trail.
First three minutes moment
I crashed! I was totally surprised and I didn't control the breaks going down on the trail. I was messed up with balance too, I felt like I was in a movie with a slow motion when I decided to go sideways and let go of the bike and slide myself. My hipbone was the first one landed, then my face that broke my sunglasses and my head, but I was wearing helmet so I was fine. I felt pain on my hipbone and I can still walk and stand, so there's no bone fractures (Thank you, God!)
It was funny and painful at the same time so this was my reaction after.
The guide said that if you can't do it, you can always walk down the trail and so I did! I looked like I'm a pro in walking with a bike.
When I saw this view, I was amazed!! So this is where the place where you can have photoshoot.
I was caught snapping (snapchat: jewelclicks) for my update after my crashed.
Friends are enjoying the view while practicing some biking skills.

Like a pro
I can't help but to take photos of this beautiful view.
Cow are you? :D
Off to second trail. The sweeper waited for me.
Another spot for a quick stop over. So beautiful!
Off to Lunch!
Second crashed! This time, I let myself fall because I lost my grip.
Off to last trail everybody was so hype! Most of them went to the hard trail and of course I went to the easy trail.
Last stop to rest and to take a dip in this cold water.
End of tour at 2:30PM awesome!
