For the past four weekends until yesterday, I've been training for mountain climbing in preparation for my Novaliches - Tuguegarao dream ride. Today, however, I decided to train for long distance pedaling.
I pedaled all the way towards Bulacan via San Jose del Monte. This is where I'd pass on my way to Tuguegarao. I wanted to check and familiarize myself with this segment of my route. I passed by Norzagaray, Angat and Bustos. At Angat, I learned the way going to Dona Remedios Trinidad. And, at Bustos, I saw the way going to Baliuag. It's where I'd turn right towards the Maharlika Highway.
From Bustos, I pedaled towards Plaridel, Guiguinto and to McArthur Highway towards Manila. At Meycauyan, I turned left to Malhacan Road on my way home. The loop is about 95 kilometers and I pedaled it for about 8 hours (9 am to 5 pm) under the intense heat of the sun.
