64 Year Old Chews Cardiac Hill

Mr. Crispulo Punongbayan - Awesome biker
I consider myself a strong cyclist. Climbing Cardiac Hill is easy for me. So when I met this frail looking ancient biker, I thought I could outclimb him. I was in for a surprise. This 64 year old cyclist from Cabuyao, Laguna eats Cardiac Hill for breakfast. His lung capacity way exceeds people half his age. Maybe even his heart pumps stronger than most people. If one observed how he climbs Cardiac Hill, one would notice that he pedals at a steady 80 to 90 revs per minute and never miss a beat.

I was tailing him 10 meters, but I could not close the gap, at some point, he even widened his lead to 20 meters. I was breaking sweat and gasping for breath at the top of the hill. I asked permission from the old timer to get to know him and maybe take a few pictures of him. He gracefully said yes. to you sir, I salute you :)
