March 14, 2024

From: Batangas Port

Destination: SM Masinag

Distance traveled today: 139.69kms

Total KM Traveled: 5,383.83


Batangas Port through San Jose, Lipa, Santo Tomas, Calamba, Santa Rosa, Muntinlupa, Taguig, C5, EDSA, White Planes, Marcos to SM Masinag (Antipolo, Rizal) Finish Line ✝️🚴‍♂️🇵🇭


Today started with a climb from Batangas all the way up to Lipa and then it level down all the way home.

Traffic was the worst on this day with many obstacles and hazards as traffic increased. Returning from the province straight into Metro-Manila can be quite the reverse culture shock.

It was a long day with 139KMS, but since it was my last day i took many long breaks and even ate at Burger King 1km before reaching the finish at same place I started last December 18th: SM MASINAG, Antipolo Rizal.

So, I finished the Philippine Loop Adventure Tour one day before my 60th Birthday. Yaaay! 🎁🍰🎂🎈🎉🚴‍♂️🏁💯🔥🇵🇭🇺🇲😂🤣🎶🎵🎼
