Biking and health

Baguio City, January 26, 2013.

2nd Angono to Baguio ride (280km)

The Recyclists successfully completed the 5th edition of the annual Baguio ride;  this is the second Angono to Baguio ride of 280 kilometers.  They touched down at the Kennon road view deck at a little over l pm.  They arrived at their hotel accommodation Pines Breeze Hotel at about 3 pm (there was too much traffic at downtown because they paved the Session road.

Of the 13 who joined all but one DNF;   he stopped at the Camp 6 and refused to go any further although he just started at the second stage. (There were two stages:   Day l Angono to Urdaneta a distance of over 200 km from Angono, Rizal) and Day 2 Urdaneta to Baguio about 80 km.

Certificates, for the first time were awarded last night at the hotel ceremonies presided by Secx Noah Sabado.
