Men’s Health captures Gary as he rides the rough terrain in Sta. Elena, Laguna. After pedaling through the muddy trails, he smiles and says, “Ang sarap, I haven’t ridden on the trail in four or five months. I’m on knee therapy kasi I got injured while performing onstage and napabayaan ko for some time.”
In between his thrice-a-week gym sessions, he rides his bike and commutes to his tapings and recordings and back home, where he takes the Marikina riverside route.
For his fellow city bicycle riders, Gary has this tip: “Stick to the right side of the road… All it takes is one hit from the side mirror or wherever, and you end up on the ground on the fast lane. On the right, you can jump up a sidewalk.”
He tells Men’s Health, “I tried riding on the left, it’s scary. You’re going fast and you see this huge truck going vroom ‘Okay I think I’m going on the right side now.'”
Gary shares more riding tips in the August issue of Men’s Health, available in newsstands, bookstores, and supermarkets nationwide. For more of Men’s Health online, visit www.menshealth.com.ph.
