    @TotoyOZresident salamat sa mga info mo at sharing of experiences. God bless you all the more, marami ako natutunan sa mga posts mo.

    Nakapunta ka na ba sa ibang mga cities like Adelaide and Darwin? Kamusta yung mga bike routes nila? Yung mga sikat kasi na biker ng australia some came from NT others naman from SA. Mas marami ba road bikes dyan or MTB?

    Thank you.

    I loved biking sa Pinas. Di pa ko nakapunta bike shops dito. Iniisip ko nga kung pwede pa ship ng bike from Quiapo or maybe pag uwi isama sa baggage. I am sure mas mura pa rin dun kesa dito. Yung mga nakikita kong workers dito na ng babike parang yung mga shimanong sa atin yung bike. Usually 6 or 7 speed mtb. Madalang lang ako makakita ng biker as a sport/hobby. Di ko lang alam sa ibang lugar. Damn I miss my old Merida.

    Maraming nagbibike sa Adelaide dre. Try mong maginstall ng Strava App.. tapos:

    1. Register ka dun sa MTS (Monthly Training Series) July / August
    2. Filter mo per country yung mga top bikers for Australia
    3. Pan through mga top bikers in Oz, Adelaide.
    4. Follow (like facebook) mo ibang bikers na taga-adelaide then presto, you have their routes na.

    Nakaka 1,000~2,000km sila per month kaya di sila ganun kasipag pumadyak hehe. Mostly road bike nga lang and climbers pero good info na yun kung saan magandang magpadyak.

    Enjoy riding! Sunod na lang ako before the Oz summer. Kitakits!

    merong mga pinoy bikers sa Rooty Hill train station ang meet up nila every weekend. I'm not sure pag ganitong winter kung anong oras. (summertime every 6am ang meeting time nila sa rooty hill train station).

    Trek bikes sa Rouse Hill Town Centre. Meron din Cell Bikes (mura bike accessories nila) store along Parramatta road. or Blackman Cycles (Parramatta and Blacktown)
    or eto browse ka ng bike minsan makatyempo ka ng sale. www.bikeexchange.com.au

    Plano ko rin bumili ng road bike pagbalik namin sa Perth, pero depende pa kung saan kami makakakuha ng permanent accommodation. Naghahanap kasi kami ng unit within Perth CBD lang para di nko mamasahe papuntang office. At kung medyo malayo layo naman sa office ang makuha namin at di kaya lakarin ay saka lang ako bibili ng bike.

    Meron din ako dati mountain bike dito sa SG kaso binenta ko na. Yearly kami sumasali sa OCBC cycle 40KM race. Nakakamiss

    maganda magbisekleta sa Perth sir dahil meron silang bike trails at usually flat sya. Meron din silang trails na pang mountain bike (unsealed road) somewhere along Midland/Mundaring area.
