Things to do prior to the ride:

3) Ensure you can be self-sufficient on the road with enough cash, your mobile phone, route map, cue sheet, inner tubes, repair kit, pump, food, energy bars, etc.
4) Take note of the cut-off time for each checkpoint.  We will be very strict about this.  All control point vehicles will return to (Paradise Hotel -Subic after the cut-off times.?)
5) Relax and get plenty of rest

For your guidance, please see cue sheet.  This google earth map photo shows the route.  Sequence is: dark blue arrows, sky blue arrows, purple arrows and then red arrows going back.   I will NOT distribute copies of these 2 documents prior to the ride anymore to save on paper (we need to do our share for the environment). If you need a copy of the cue sheet, please let me know in advance so we can provide you one. 

Registration Options:
1) Advance Registration (highly recommended to avoid the rush prior to the ride).  There are 2 options to do this: a) Register Online OR b) Download and accomplish the registration form. Make sure it is properly filled up and signed.  Deposit the registration fee of Php 500 that goes to the preparation costs, brevet cards and accreditation dues for Audax Club Parisien (we paid 2,134.45 Euros in January 2016).  You can deposit the registration fee to the following account: Account Name - Carmela Patricia S. Pearson; BPI Account #: 0420-0051-05.  Email your accomplished registration form and the scanned deposit slip of your registration fee to  Once acknowledged, all you have to do is show up and get your brevet card before the ride. 

2) On-site Registration on March 19 (Saturday) morning, 3:30am-5am, just outside Paradise Hotel.

This is a non-profit ride with an unrestricted pace. You can go and ride at your own pace but be reminded that this is NOT A RACE. The important thing is to finish before the 13.5-hour cut-off (6:30pm). Try to find a group with a speed that you're comfortable with for the entire duration of the ride.
