With the country life ticked off the Philippine must do bucket list it was time to get back to the hustle and bustle of Manila. With 42,857 people in every square kilometer and a population of 1.652 million people we were fully won over by our guides claims of ‘riding’ within the limits of the city. Pulling up at the local we were awaited by a tribe of scooter kids, or in Philippian terms, our uplift. With the wind flowing through our hair, a flurry of replica Red Bull helmets around us and trails we could almost taste the scooter life was for us. No more uplift-bus drowsiness, 10 runs a day instead of 5, being pulled right to the top of the trail, does it get any better, the downhill’s certainly did!
