My 5th Biking Anniversary

June 14 (yesterday) was my 5th anniversary in biking.

Since we're in La Union yesterday and today, I planned to celebrate it by riding this morning from Bauang, La Union towards (not necessarily reaching) Baguio City via Naguilian Road.  But, it didn't push through due to lack of time.  We need to be back Manila this afternoon.

Happy Anniversary to me!

Liliw to Lucban and v.v.

Pictures of my 69er at Liliw Resort:
Last Saturday, without any plan, we went to Calamba, Laguna and looked for a resort to stay in overnight.  The resorts were so crowded, we proceeed to Liliw, Laguna.

As always, I brought my bike along just in case there's time to bike.  And, there was!  Sunday morning, I pedaled off to Lucban, Quezon.  It's just 18 kilometers away according to Google Maps.  If the roads were flat, I'd be there in about an hour.  As expected, the roads to Lucban are rolling and mostly uphills; and, I got there in 2 hours.

On the way back, however, it just took me an hour and half.

The uphills of the zigzag portion of the Liliw Lucban Road (to and fro) made me push my bike.
