road mtbiking: Lucena City to Lucban


Mapping my mountain bike ride to Lucban from Lucena City (Quezon Province) via brgy. Calumpang, Tayabas City during Pahiyas Festival last March 15, 2013 (Wednesday). My jump-off started at Lucena City Grand Terminal at around 5 in the morning.


Checking my front wheel at Arias Jeepney terminal and the Calumpang intersection.

Rains started to fall when I’m near Tayabas town proper, so I take a rest and waiting for the rain to cease until I look up and saw a rainbow. It was a long stop so I started to move forward although it rains until I saw another waiting shed, take cover again and shoot the sunrise.

It still rains when I pass at ‘Kamayan sa Palaisdaan’ and ‘Nawawalang Paraiso Resort and Hotel’.

Luckily rains slowly stops when I reach the Lucban town boundary.

The highest road elevation in Lucban at 1500 feet above sea level.

Now it’s Lucban, Quezon during Pahiyas Festival 2013. Biking and walking around the busy streets to see the Pahiyas colorful decorations/celebrations.

At ‘Kamay ni Hesus’ also crowded with devotees, tourist and visitors, and at nearly opposite side the way to ‘Batis Aramin Resort’.

Taking a quick stop at Tayabas City.

Now pitstop at Lucena City Grand Terminal, take lunch and go home. According to my speedometer the whole ride only covers ~51km (included strolling in Lucban). Thanks for viewing and wish me luck on my next mountain bike ride adventure.
