The bike trails
At the Filinvest bike trails, your mountain biking skills are tested to the core. You will cycle through grassy spaces and tree lanes, wind through curvy paths that go by streams or climb rugged slopes. The trails contain helpful signs to guide you should you get lost.
What’s mountain biking without challenges? Your pedalling and gear-shifting skills will be tested, from sharp uphill climbs, mind-boggling slope edges and dizzying drops to mini ramps, rock gardens, and root-filled tracks. Some steps climb along the walls of a nearby village. Be sure to try the Heart Attack Trail near the South Luzon Expressway.
