                                           The tropa who rode yesterday to Luisiana

We rode to Luisiana yesterday, August 16, 2015.  There were 6 of us:

Gerry K
Pres Luis
Edgar Idol Valdez
Jorgeus biker

The original goal was to go Lucban  Quezon to see Kamay ni Jesus but then at Luisian, JB and Nolite say no more, no mas.  Besides it looked like rain going to Lucban.  So after taking lunch, (JB dropped the camera in the resto and realized it was missing and had to bike back after they were about 3 km out.

The 6 brave souls started out at about 6 am, and was at Pisong Kape by 7:00 and soon Edgar Valdez arrived by 7:10 all the way from Cubao. Master E joined us until Morong. As I was biking up to Bugarin, I was interviewed by an MTB rider, whom I learned was Dr. Rene Salvador, a professor of Electrical Engineering at TIP.  He lives in Morong, and used to be the Dean of Engineering at Feati. U. We resumed biking and we were in Famy by 9:10 and 10:00 am at Pagsanjan.  We were in Luisiana by 11:30.  We had lunch soon, and were back on the road by 12.  We were at Pagsanjan again by 1:30 and resumed biking.  Rain caught up with us and we were in Famy by 3:00 pm.  We were in  Tita Carmen n Jalajala by 4:30 and we arrived at 6:30.  We spent 12 hours on the road.

Some of the comments of Jeff:

1.  We had 3 long climbs yesterday in one day:    Bugarin, Luisiana and Mabitac.  xxx May I add Cavinti

2.  We travelled 182 km without a service vehicle (we also used to have one sponsored by VM) Which means pag gusto kakayananin
