As my year end ride, I pedaled from our place in Novaliches, Quezon City to Our Lady Lourdes Grotto in San Jose Del Monte City, Bulacan. It's about 28-kilometer ride back and forth.
On the way, I met another biker, who came all the way from Marikina and was going to Malolos, Bulacan. We rode together up to the Grotto. His name is Mang Ado; and, he's 61 years old.
At the back of the church, it features the Stations of the Cross with life-size statues. And, I biked around the stations.
The First Station - Jesus is condemned to death.
To Second Station

I was already hungry and ate a bowl of arroz caldo.
Before going home, I passed by the Grotto Vista; and, it's open.
