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 ?

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.
