Ciclo Caliraya Cycling Trip

Ever noticed how amazing it is that our bikes can bring us almost anywhere? Imagine, we only need our legs just to travel. One long weekend brought about the anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution, we celebrated our freedom by riding our bikes to Caliraya, Laguna.

Along with cyclists from Team Loyola, sporting their custom cycling kits from Ciclo Custom, and Cycling Matters, we covered a total of 95 kilometers riding from our origin in Quezon City. Our route through Rizal's Manila East Road had a total elevation gain of 1,100 meters crossing Antipolo and Bugarin.

The route followed the national highway, but traffic was mild along the way. We just had to watch out for any sudden stops made by local jeepneys or tricycles. The climb up to Caliaraya from Kalayaan, Laguna may have been painful but the destination was worth it. The cool winds by the serene lake took away whatever fatigue we had from the ride.

We spent the night at one of the lakeside resorts and admired the stars before falling asleep.

If ever you need a place to go for a long bike trip, we definitely recommend Caliraya. It'll always be one of our happy places on a bike.
