If you really want to ride you can always take the nice and scenic short ride which are many places her in the Phils.

My father's relatives/roots are from Malabon too. Family name is GINO.

Keep in touch and maybe we can arrange a meet up with you when you arrive for some story telling and/or

cool herc, i'm looking forward in meeting some of you guys.

i know the gino's in barrio flores, basketball players, tall and athletic (at the time... )

i can bring some adv stickers and mx jerseys for you to keep or passed around.

my issue is torn muscle and that takes longer to heal....


keep on posting pics and rr!

98Virago, Along that route, you will have no trouble finding good places to eat and stay. Enjoy you trip. But you know now that you have told us you are doing this, a Ride Report must follow...

Offroad ride to Dinadiawan, Baler (1st night), crossing over to Nagtipunan and Madela in Quirino, quick pass through Santiago, Isabela and then to Paracelis, Mt. Province (2nd night). Third day was most gruelling, riding from Paracelis thorugh Natonin, Barlig, Bontoc and then Sagada (3rd night).

Beautiful Philippines!


Approaching the Aurora Coast


MikeG showing us how it's done


Resting in Nagtipunan, Quirino






Refuelling at Paracelis bote-bote (by bottles).


Typical terrain from Paracelis to Barlig. Must be exciting to ride here during the rainy season.


Creepy...

Well one thing's for sure,the kids were right to call you a giant!

That's an awesome dualie route. I remember doing it about 3 years ago right after the rains. There were a lot of landslide blocking the road.

Thanks for sharing the pix of your ride buddy!

Thanks Joel. Had 3 spills on that ride (got too over-confident on the XC )... the dirtbagz did ok, no damage. Yes, let's ride when you get here.
