road mtbiking: Santo Tomas to Lipa City

This was my last week mtbike ride from Sto. Tomas to Lipa City, Batangas then back to Sto. Tomas town. Rain start to fall almost every day and it’s hard to avoid the wet ride these days but luckily rains always start to fall at mid afternoon or in the afternoon before the dawn, so it a must to take a ride early in the morning before the heat of the sun got hotter and before the rains falls. I’ve started my jump-off at the Sto. Tomas town plaza in front of town Cathedral at around 5:45am.

From Tanauan City to Lipa City it was a slightly uphill ride.

At the Lipa City Hall and SM City Lipa before the rush hour of the day.

Side trip at Lipa City Catedral before some photoshot at Malarayat Golf and Country Club entrance.

On the left side of the road the Brgy. Talisay arch entrance, the jump-off for Mt. Malipunyo climb.

It’s now Sto. Tomas area at Brgy. Sta Cruz, the jump-off for Mt. Manabu climb.

Another side trip at St. Padre Pio Shrine at Brgy. San Pedro, Sto. Tomas, Batangas. Now back at Sto. Tomas town proper.

It was an easy ride so next time I have to push farther more, it’s just a short ride with a distance of 48.7 km. See ya again next time, thanks for passing by my blog.
