road mtbiking: Tanauan City to San Juan

San Juan, Batangas (Philippines) is home for the famous Laiya white beaches and one of the producers of Lambanog and potteries. Biking this easternmost town in the province of Batangas that started from the northern town is one of my bike routes want to try, so early morning last week I rode this route on a mountain bike. I started late at 7am hence marking my starting point at Tanauan City, it was a sunny (morning) day before the typhoon hits the area.

Mark my jump-off at Tanauan City plaza, at late 7 in the morning.

At Lipa City boundery arch and at Lipa Bike Shop that was still closed.

Lipa City intersection, turn left to town proper, and at Padre Garcia (Batangas) welcome arch.

At the Batangas famous ‘tuklaw’ an “albolaryo” known to cure snake bite.

Side trip at Batangas Racing Circuit at Rosario (Batangas), a few kilometres from the main highway.

Now it’s San Juan welcome arch and at front of San Juan Municipal Hall, I take a big lunch, take more rest, nap and take an afternoon ride back to Tanauan City.

Along San Juan – Tiaong road crossing ‘Malaking Ilog’ river.

At Tiaong Municipal Hall, take rest and snacks at Mc Do Tagpuan.

In front of Hacienda Escudero and in San Pablo City welcome marker.

Now its Alaminos town in Laguna, no long stops and photo shot now.

With an emptied battery speedometer I have to rely on my smart phone navigation apps for distance and its record an approximately 112.4 kilometer, including my side trip to Batangas Racing Circuit. The whole ride covers the towns of Sto. Tomas, Tanauan City, Malvar, Lipa City, Padre Garcia, Rosario, San Juan in Batangas, Tiaong in Quezon, San Pablo City, and Alminos in Laguna. This one was my longest ride as for now and sees you again for another outdoor adventure bike ride.
