This blog is my attempt to journal our rides each season. TEam MANG (timang) is a very informal club - the one requirement is that you love to ride your bike (all types)...and do other things like eat and hang out and be silly. The term "Mang" is commonly used in the Filipino language to address older gentlemen but we're not gender or ethnic exclusive. We welcome women, too - we call them Team "Aling". Overall, we're just BFF's (bicycling with friends for fun).

2012 June 3 - Peninsula Metric Century - 64 Miles
Posing with Team Tamaraw in gig Harbor after the ride
Team Mang decided to do the Peninsula Century - an attempt at 100 miles with over 3300 feet of hills (7000 feet of actual climbs). But some delays early during the ride and a crash that took down 3 riders (1 bad enough to be taken back to base with an unrideable bike) slowed them down. They opted to do the 66 mile route instead and shoot for the actual century at the Flying Wheels Ride the coming Saturday. It was still the most hilly ride aside from the 7HOK they've done so far. Here's a video summary: http://youtu.be/1Or7V_8sd-4.
