Manila Cycling - Rides around Manila-Batangas and Laguna
These routes were completed after extensive planning and even a couple of failed attempts (i.e. I got lost and had to abandon), but once understood, they are quite achievable and a lot of fun.
1. 'Round the Bay in a day' - Laguna De Bay!Stop at the cycling cafes at the 66km mark to re-fuel before the mountain stage.
|There are 2 or 3 fantastic cafes in San Juan to stop and eat. The cafes are at the base of the first mountains. On any Saturday or Sunday morning dozens of cyclists meet there or use the cafes as their turn around point.|
|The friendship arch is at about the half way mark. These towns are not commonly visited by tourists and you may be pleasantly surprised at how quaint and ancient looking some of the villages are.|
|The ride includes many places to look back and see the amazing Manila skyline|
