    After taking our snacks and resting it was time to go. Same route as we did going up all the way down. Along the back roads from San Ysiro This is how it looked like.

    BOSS Educational Mission Ride
    Balbalasang
    Balbalan, Province of Kalinga
    August 7-10, 2008

    View On Route to Balbalasang

    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.

    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.

    Here is a 5 part series of a trail outside my vacation home on the remote Island of Negros, Philippines.

    This trail is used by Smugglers that cut up steel, equipment and sell it for scrap out of an old abandoned mine. the trail is about 30km long.

    Helmet cam is POI, YouTube doesnt do it justice, it records crystal clear DVD quality, loses a lot in their translation. Best if viewed in HIGH quality, click on lower right on the bar below the screen. Just below "VIEWS" click view in high quality, that's if you have hi speed internet, Makes a big difference.

    Enjoy,

    Bryan
