TAGAYTAY’S Twin Lakes — the country’s first vineyard resort township community — has added a mountain bike trail to its attractions.
The new off-road track is a 2.5 kilometer-long loop which takes riders deep into the lush forest, from the mountain top where Twin Lakes’ establishments are situated up until the foothills going to Taal Lake.
The new trail at the Megaworld-owned development promises to put bikers’ riding skills to test as they need to tackle a narrow and often bumpy path that runs between bushes and trees all throughout the track.
It also offers all sorts of off-road cycling challenges, from fast downhill descents, berms, off camber turns, switchbacks, short and steep climbs and small bumps, to swooping curves and sudden elevation changes, making it suitable for both beginners and advanced riders.
Also located within the trail are stopovers where riders can rest while enjoying the cool breeze and scenic views of Taal Lake.
It also offers amenities and conveniences that are uncommon to most mountain bike trails, from free parking spaces to a variety of restaurants, and a place for an after-ride respite before heading back to the city.
Twin Lakes’ Mountain Bike Trail is open to all mountain bike enthusiasts. For more information, visit www.megaworldlifestylemalls.com.
