Mitch departs on Philippine Loop

Updated: Jan 6

I will be departing on the Philippine Loop Adventure Tour today, December 18th, 2023. The bicycle tour is over 5,200kms long and travels across the Philippines.

I will be bicycling the entire Philippine Loop in two stages:

Stage 1:

Northern Luzon from December 18th (before Midnight 00:00) to January 5th, 2024 - 18 days (includes day offs).

Stage 2:

Central Luzon, Bicol, Sorsogon, Samar, Leyte, Surigao to General Santos to Dapitan, Negros, Panay, Mindoro, Batangas and Manila: Feb 5th to March 15th, 2024 - 40 days (includes day offs).

My personal goal is 60 days on my 60th Birthday. The route is over 5,200kms. This is an average of 88kms per day.

I will be passing out tracts, Gospel stickers, two Gospel booklets a day, prayer and preaching at certain junctions.

There are 14 mandatory Check-points I must pass through to complete the Philippine Loop requirements.



-2nd Highest Point in Atok, Benguet.



-Baler, Aurora Province.

-Tacloban City, Leyte

-General Santos

-Sorsogon to Samar Pier

-Southern Leyte to Surigao Pier

-Dapitan to Dumaguete Pier

-Negros to Iloilo Pier

-Aklan to Mindoro Pier

-Mindoro to Batangas Pier

I must take at least 30 photos of the tour, and complete a photo album at the end of the event. Prizes will be given later. I am also required to post my information DAILY on the Official Philippine Loop Adventure Tour fb Page.

Follow me this Christmas.

Here we go!

I am targeting my Starting Line at SM Masinag before midnight 00:00 on December 18th heading towards Cabanatuan onwards...
