WeFXD Sunday Long Ride To Clark, Pampanga

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.
