BOSS and friends delivered sporting goods such as soccer balls, basketballs, baseball items, shirts, jerseys, kids' bags and bags for the teachers. Recipient school was the St. Paul's Memorial School in Balbalasang, Balbalan, Kalinga.
[b]The 100+km scenic trail from Tabuk towards Balbalasang is composed mostly of mountainside paths that is blessed with majestic views of mountains, rice terraces, trees, rivers and waterfalls.
It is considered as a moderately technical off-road ride with multiple types of soil and terrain. There are sections of gravel, loose clay, mud, shallow water flows and are riddled with ruts. When rains persist, it gets to be difficult with muddy ruts as deep as 2 feet.
