    I ride both.. but depends on alot of situation
    1) what type of terrain you live near by
    2) cycling group or alone ?
    3) budget ?
    4) training purpose / goals
    5) What you love doing most ?


    • 1. As of now, I live in a city so I’m gonna be running on flats all the time but I am thinking of doing mountain biking as well.
      2. I don’t have a group yet so most likely I’m alone.
      3. Cheaper but quality road/mountain bike is what I need and it’s durability.
      4. I want to join triathlon someday so I am preparing for it.
      5. Stroll around and visit places that I’ve never been.
