How to Have a Successful Bike Trip

These days, the trend of cycling is making a big comeback. In fact, there is a time of the year when people decide to travel the world together with their bikes. They can do this by loading them on their car (road trip) or boxing it up and travel via plane. Regardless of what biking plans you will choose and employ to see the world, there are lots of things that you must keep in mind when getting ready for a bike trip. And here are some of them:

Pack proper clothing

This may be an obvious tip but you should never forget to take a look at the weather forecast in the place where you are going before you pack for your trip. Once you have done your research, pack the proper clothing accordingly.

Be knowledgeable about repairs and adjustments

You will be cycling in an unknown territory and you can’t surely afford to encounter any problems on the road. However, we cannot be able to predict things so it is best that you come prepared. Aside from knowing how to fix flat tire, you also have to know how to adjust your bike’s brakes, replace a slipped chain or tighten the bolts.

Choose the best bike rack for your needs

This tip is applicable for those who will be traveling via road trip. There are different types of bike racks out there– trunk rack, hitch rack and roof rack. Try to determine which of these types would work well for your needs. In addition to that, opt for a rack that is manufactured by a reputable bike rack company.

Have the right biking equipment

Safety should be your utmost priority. That is why be sure that you have a helmet that fits your just right. In addition to this, you must also install some lights on your helmet and bike for late night bike travel.

Biking is one good way to travel. Not only will it enable you to see the world, it can also do great wonders for your mind and body. In addition to being environmental friendly, it also allows you to enjoy the sceneries and to travel at your own pace.

Coron: Vacation and Diving Destination

Another Blunder in Aesthetic Fixtures

In our vacation earlier this May, end us up going back to Bantayan Island as it is the nearest good beach destination so for the family to gather. There are so many variable things that were considered before we end up there and we stayed in Sta. Fe Beach Resort for two main reasons. One, being near from the pier itself and the next is that, they have cheaper rates for the extended family of ours and since they have plans of going to Ogtong Cave, it is the best option as to speak since they offer free day use of their facilities if you are staying at Sta. Fe Beach Resort.

The photo above is the family cottages that we occupied for 3D/2N while the one below is the main building of the resort that houses the standard and deluxe rooms.

Since the vacation is a family gathering, to celebrate the 70th birthday of our father, we opted to occupy the cottages for numerical reason. And on the first night of our stay, I immediately noticed something that is not good in my eyes. Although the cottages are already at its prime and I believe that it needs some refurbish but it should not become the reason for this kind of electrical fixtures as it could possibly turn down guest of coming back. Not to mention the safety hazard that it poses unless it was approved by licensed electrician and the fire department, which I doubt. A small spark could ignite a big fire since the materials used in the cottage are made of light materials and are already very dry.

This is simply another blunder in aesthetic fixtures.
