4.  Engr June will take care of lodging at Urdaneta, dinner and breakfast.  (Wow.  Thanks Engr - just quoting you)

Next week, the last tune up will either be at Luisiana (it usually rains there) or Tagaytay.  Then light ride one week before February 10

If you are not ready, please think of the ride in 4 stages (the first day is the toughest ) divided into 4 segments of 50 km each.  If we ride at 20 kph, we can cover the entire distance in 10 hours (that is from 5 to 3 pm.  Kayang kaya

The Baguio portion is only 74 km: 40 km from Urdaneta to Rosario.   the 33 km is the climb.  The hardest part is only from Black Mountain to Baguio City proper only 10 km.  Parang Bugarin ride lang.  If at any point you are distressed, get off and rest.  It is not a race

Kayang kaya. if we practice well and set our mind to it.
