Wheels of Happiness

Rizal Philippines
Holy Thursday, April 13, 2017

We Rizal Recyclists riders, just finished the Bisikleta Iglesia 2017.  We started out at Sacred Heart Church at 6:00 am and finished the last church  Angono St Clement Church at 11:40.  We capped the ride with a lunch, boodle fight at the house of Jess Verchez in Villa Gloria from 12:15 to 1:20.   It was a great day for penance and sacrifice (except the boodle fight) to bike that long and under the hot summer sun (in the 30's)

There were 14 of us who joined the ride:

1.  Alan Astorga
2.  Jess Verchez
3.  Pres Luis
4.  Engr June
5.  Master E
6.  Ado Gonzaga
7.  Meong
8.  Gerry Y
9.  Gerry K
10.  Jorgeus Biker
11.  VM
12.  Jose A
13.  Richard Ang
14.  Nolite
