I had planned of traversing the trails of Rodriguez, Rizal - Licao licao, Macabud and Nabutas.
I've been reading the related PMTB threads and studying and plotting the maps. Likewise, I initially surveyed Pangarap Village and checked where the trail head is.
And, there was the Licao licao Fun Ride organized by PapiRocky on January 30, 2010 Saturday. Unfortunately, I was out of town at that time.
So, this morning, I executed my plan.
This is my first time on this journey - a totally stranger to the places and trails I was going to venture to and totally all alone.
Armed with a map and a determination, I left our home in Novaliches at about 7:00 AM. I passed by Neopolitan Business Park and ate my breakfast of Lugaw with egg.
Whoa! This trek is the hardest but the best the I've ridden, so far. It's a combination of long trails and long paved roads. I loved riding the hardship of the trails and enjoyed the rolling road going to Payatas. I'd come back for more to try and explore the other branches of the trails.
On my home, I passed by a bike store along Commonwealth, Fairview and had my bike tuned-up to ready my bike for the next ride.
By the way, I arrived home at around 11:00 AM. I had to go home early for the joint birthday celebration of my daughter, Jaja, and sister, Elvie.
