It's holy week here and for some of us that don't have plans to go out of town, we ride our way to a distant province for some cold weather and hill bombing. See you this morning at 4:00AM, Caltex Malugay.

Last February 24, 2013 the WeFXd crew went on a Heaven and Hell ride to Clark, Pampanga. 200km of endless road from Manila to Pampanga. Crazy road conditions, few crashes and busted tires and intense heat. One epic long ride and lot of Good Vibes and Good Rides.
