This Year's Good Friday Ride: The Taal Lake Loop

View Larger Map

Since way back in 1997, we've always been doing the Visita Iglesia by bicycle around the various churches of Batangas. Except for some minor revisions over the years, the route has always been the same -- you start from Batangas City and you bike to San Jose, Ibaan, Rosario, Padre Garcia, Lipa, San Vicente de Ferrer, Cuenca, Alitagtag, Sta. Teresita, Bauan, and San Pascual before heading back to Batangas City.

This year, it's going to be a bit different for the Laguna de Bikers Team (our dear friend, Jack Narciso, is joining us this year) - we're going to do the Taal Lake loop for the first time. I don't know the exact locations as I'm unfamiliar with the territory, but it's going to be a clockwise loop that will start and end in Batangas City. We're planning to leave early morning and hope to be back before nightfall.

In this ride, we will reflect on Christ's passion and death by saying the Stations of the Cross, as well as celebrate his resurrection as we reach Batangas City through His grace.

With this, I encourage you to please pray for our safe trip.
