You can contact Michael Phillips (622-MIKE) or Gene Samuel (622-Bike) for the clubs located in the North.

sweet man, I was hoping someone asked about it. When it comes to trails and downhill, Trinidad must have it nice. What are you riding?

Couva .... there are some lovely roads and off road close to where I am.... Preysal, Grand Couva, Chickland, Freeport, Brasso, Caparo, Indial Trail, Mayo etc etc....

I don't bike like I use to but I'd really like to get back into it....I recently sold my road bike but I still have a mountain bike.

Cannondale F600 with full Shimano components.... sweetest hardtail I've ever ridden. I've got the pebble colour which I think is the only one in the country.

Sweet bike dread, i guess you got it from Motorcycle etc. I just sold my orbea road bike, because the drivers in this country don't give a fcuk about cyclist. So i'm looking to do trails or country riding now.

Looking forward to some invitations soon. Saturday me and a couple friends went up to the abandon Dome in Chaguaramas, a 5 mile climb, it took close to an hour. But the ride down was fun.

I ride regularly with who ever wants to join.

There are many mountain bike trails in Chaguramas, and just this weekend we were biking up Cumaca Rd. in Valencia.

I also run a 10K at least once a week (School St. in Carenage to Crews inn and back) (just under an hour, no hero ting (I'm not light, 192 lbs).

I gym at least once a week at valley view, warm-up is three set's of chins, 20-15-15
three set's of push-ups, 40-30-30, three sets of incline abs -20-20-20 (i suck at abs)

I hash with the POS hash house harriers every other weekend and basically try to maintain an active lifestyle.

richiepooh, if you are looking for a workout, I'm your guy, Marcus 680-0874

the Dome / Radar ball is a good pull, if you made that in an hour, you are more then welcome to join. There are trails in the back of Anchorage, awesome trails opposite and around the golf course and of course, everywhere else in this country.

I'll be busy this Satiurday (whole day) but I'm free Sunday. or anytime this week if you want to run / hike / do sprint exercises / whatever.

Late hours are not an issue as I typically do my 10k run at 8pm or 9pm.

All I ask is that if you can't make it, call early and give it your all when we are training.

Eh Marcus, i may know you because i hash every other Saturday. Saturday gone we hashed in Palo Seco. It was real nice with the mud volcano and all. If we never met at the hash, you may know me as the Hash DJ. the white station wagon with the music.

This evening we are heading Chancerlor Hill to do repeats. Welcome to join, we are starting to cycle 4:15pm sharp.

I dont think there is a formal club but there is def a informal club. Just join in any bunch you see riding man or go out by yourself. Soon enough you will have a bunch of riding buddies.

There are at least a couple of trails in on the eastern side. Personally I tried the off road but fell too much especially using cleats so went back into what I love , road.

Please let me know so we could make arrangements for parking.

If you guys ever up to biking in Central let me know. You can safely leave your vehicles at the ATO Boldon stadium off the Preysal Flyover.
