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 9 - Flying Wheels Century - 96 miles
Team Mang at the first rest stop at mile 28
Team Mang joined the rest of LAFBLs, Trangko, Tamaraw and thousands of other riders in the annual Flying Wheels Century Ride put on by Cascade Bicycle Club. Weather was cloudy and cold with some sprinkles. The ride had several crashes with at least one being serious enough to require medivac but all of the Team Mangs completed their goal of either 65 or 100 miles Here's the ride info: http://soc.li/UQ3HDCU.
