Bittersweet Balagbag (Painful Uphill, Crazy Downhill)

Going up Mt. Balagbag (777+ MASL) with the USAP Mountaineers and USAP 2-Wheels clubs was a PAIN. I practically walked up the mountain. I need to get more pedal time and maybe go back to the 5k night run habit.

Going downhill was a different matter though :) trying to go through rock gardens 90% of the way down was a challenge but I think I’ve finally learned how to correctly dial the fork. The Fox 36 TALAS 180 FIT RC2 fork just ate everything Mt. Balagbag could throw at it and then some.

On to the next challenge!
