Reid Rider Of The Month Maie

Hot Read Hot read Jun 29

 

Our Reid rider of the month for June is Maie, a MTB rider from Philippines. Philippines is one of newer international countries selling Reid so we’re excited to hear all about her experience and how she is enjoying her bike on the islands.

Introduce yourself…

Hi! My name is Maie and I’m from Bontoc, Mountain Province, Philippines. I’ve always loved travelling to different places while taking photographs. I also love hiking looking for great views and exploring our town’s mountainuous area. I have an IG account maie.s_world which features some of the historical churches in the country, places where I went to, and some scenic views of our town.

When and how did you get into bike riding?

I have learned how to bike when I was younger. I used to borrow bikes from my cousins and we would go around town.

What is it that you enjoy most about cycling?

I enjoyed going anywhere I want. I also used it as a form of exercise for the last two months everyday, early in the morning or in the afternoon after work. I would bike alone to the same spot, along the road at the mountainsides where I would sit for a moment then go back home. It really felt great because it gives me a tranquil moment.

How did you get your hands on a Reid?

I was planning to buy a mountain bike then my sister based in Australia introduced me the bike brand Reid. So I ask her to send me one. While browsing Reid bikes on the internet, I fell in love with the MTB Pro disc Wsd style and color. Luckily, there are some Reid bike retailers here in the Philippines so I immediately message them then shipped the next day.

Which Reid bike did you ride?

How has it treated you?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Reid MTB Pro Disc Wsd is the perfect fit for us, female riders. It has a narrow handlebar which gives comfort on long rides and it suits the average female proportion. In addition, it is a quality value bike.

What have you done and where have you been with it?

Biking is a great form of physical activity, it has always feel so good going anywhere you want to. From winding roads uphill and downhill along the mountainsides of our town, while feeling fresh air that makes you feel energized. It even makes you come back home feeling brighter.

Do you have any other future adventures planned?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

I haven’t tried some places on a much higher altitude in our town but I’m planning to get my next Reid bike and explore these places.

Finally, what advice would you give to those who are considering getting into bike riding or perhaps have never tried it before?

Biking is not just a form of exercise or commute. We do not just discover places but our strength to reach our destination. Every easy and hard step on the pedal is an achievement to a more adventurous experience.
