Tonchi Tinio conquers steep San Mateo trail
There was a surprise waiting for him on top of the hill.
ACT Teachers Party-list Rep. Antonio Tinio spent a chill day on his mountain bike. His newest challenge is the notorious Shotgun Road near San Mateo in Rizal, which has proven to be a herculean task for cyclists.
That’s why he was just so thrilled to conquer the “ridiculously steep” uphill climb, with the sight of a tall scarecrow greeting him at the empty road suddenly showcasing his achievement.
Even his fellow Congressman Miro Quimbo agreed.
“Not for the faint hearted. The last 300M climb feels like a Lord of the Rings climax sequence,” he said.
