Hello saddle! I'm back!

I broke my biking hiatus yesterday and did a nice short lap in Timberland's main trail. From the clubhouse parking area (This is the new parking area. They don't allow us to park on the main road anymore), I pedaled my way to the offroad section and took a left turn towards Roxas. Then it was all downhill from Roxas "boulevard" to the part that used to be called "Boy-Girl". Then I climbed up the cemented road up to Araneta and took a right turn back to the main trail straight to the parking area.

How about a bike trip from Manila to Northern Luzon?

I've been toying with the idea of another bike trip that is more epic that what I did last year. This one will start from Manila to Pagudpod via the Maharlika highway in the east, passing by the provinces of Bulacan, Nueva Ecija and Nueva Viscaya, and then back to Manila, but this time taking the National Highway and passing by the provinces of Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan and Tarlac.

I think I should take about a three week leave for this so that I'll have more time to appreciate the views and get more immersed with the people I'll meet. I'm planning on traveling no more than a hundred kilometers every day and take a couple of days off whenever I feel like it.

There's nothing like experiencing the countryside on a bicycle.

I wonder if I can find companies who are willing to sponsor me on this adventure. Maybe I can do an exdeal with them - my stories for their moolah.

Now wouldn't that be a great adventure?
