5 day ride Philippines

Hi Guys,

Myself and a few guys are going next year to the Philippines for a 5 day ride.

This is the plan so far:
Fly into Manila, van to Angles City, hire the bikes from NiceBike,
XR200's, then thinking of riding down to Subic Bay / Bar Barretto and
stay at Arizona Resort as i know the guys there.

Then head north and up into the mountains.
What is the best way to go ?
What are some places to check out ?
Do you think we should take a local ?
Or support truck ?

Cheers

hi KASUYAHO,

here is an example of a 5 day-s ride
Day 1, Airport to Nicebike (3 hours) then on to Subic (2-3 hours)
Day2, Subic to Baguio City , 4-5 hours
Day3, Baguio City to Sagada, 5 hours
Day4, Sagada-Abatan-Tinoc , 4-5 hours
Day5, Tinoc-Kiangan- Angeles (Nicebike), 8 hours

here is the link on the kind of terrain and places in my facebook account https://www.facebook.com/ramon.gonza...2464220&type=3

I can tailor a ride for your group, tell me how many hours (max) on the road you can do on a day.

goodluck and happy planning!

KASUYAHO, I have gone up the Zambales coast up to Lingayen, on to La Union,
to Tagudin, left to Cervantes, and over into the Mountain Province. Sagada and the rice terraces are good to see. I don't know how far you want to go in a day, so a route like this maybe too much for five days.

DO NOT ride after dark. Many drive with no lights.

Enjoy your trip.

The Lonely Planet Philippines book has a lot of helpful information on travel here in the PI. One thing I like is it has a lot of information in a very compact form. Many maps and info about towns etc.

You have some time before your trip to brush up on the Philippines from a trips view.

Thanks for the info mate,

Looking at riding 8 hours day and try and get in as much dirt as possible is the plan.

We will bring over our own riding gear but whats the go with helmets ?
i read that we have to use helmets sold in the philippines or get a sticker and put that on our helmets ?

Helmet should be no problem. I have a SHOEI. The sticker is what is called an ICC Quality Mark sticker. Several products have them on the packaging or on the item itself. The package light bulbs come in have the ICC sticker.
