With crazy traffic, air pollution, limited open spaces or parks, heat,
humidity & often no beaches for miles,
SPORT in S.E Asia can be a challenge! Posting since 2009, these are my stories of cycling, running, swimming, football, cricket, cross-fit, rock climbing, adventure racing, street chess
& many more sports in S.E Asia; including Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Malaysia & Sarawak, China, Singapore, Japan, Borneo, Bali..and a few adventures from Australia.

Cycling Manila to General Santos City. (Planned Early 2015)
Before I Die or leave Philippines I plan to ride Manila to Gen. Santos. The route is over 1000km but incredibly is achieved with only 2 ferry crossings!
The main inspiration I have for doing it is this German dude I met on the road one day. Spotted his loaded up bike as I rode past a gas station..He was sitting there drinking a beer alone. I stopped, bought him another beer and we chatted about the route. He was in his last 100kms after leaving Gen. Santos city 3 weeks earlier.\What a legend.
