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?

Thanks for the feedback, John. I don't think we'll be doing a 175-kilometer day. I'll probably do 100 to 120 kilometers per day to be fresh.

Do you have any pictures of your ride? Maybe you'd like to share! :)
