PINOY MOUNTAIN BIKERS:
ONLINE HAVEN FOR BIKERS
Balance is key to riding a bike. Apparently, it is also a great way to meet new friends in the biking community. While the Pinoy Mountain Bikers (PMTB) group is composed mainly of those who specialize on roughing it on their wheels, they also welcome those who have an interest in biking in general.
PMTB is a 12-year-old online community for bikers and bike buddies alike. Since its advent in 2003, the group has been dedicated in providing a well-balanced online avenue for cyclists and bike enthusiasts. From its humble group of five members in 2012 under the proboards community, they have grown to almost 35 thousand members from all parts of the world.
From gears, wheel sets, events, bike shops and even recommendations on the best masseurs to soothe tired muscles on a long ride — name it and the PMTB forums have it. According to Mondy (last name), the group’s organizer, they consider PMTB as a sanctuary. “It is a place where we find new friends, foster camaraderie through riding by sharing information and ideas on worthwhile projects. It is about helping and guiding each other in a place where we can just be ourselves and know that we are not alone in having this passion for biking,” he furthered.
