Tour Of Hope day 1.

Hey today marked the beginning of the tour of hope Philippines a 5 days 500km casual bike tour from Manila to the top of Baguio in the Luzon section of the Philippines! The main reason why I joined is because my little Joyette is one of the organizers and of course it’s for a very good cause, the awareness of cervical cancer!

We started early, at 4 am to get to the start line in Makati City! After registration, chatting with friends and the briefing, we where off!

There’s actually a few celebrities joining the tour this year, amongst the 100ish riders and if anybody has been to Makati city and then driven to Clark Freeport Zone, knows that there lots of traffic! So those two things made sure we had a good escort with Police and bodyguards in front, beside and behind us.

After a little traffic we got rolling. There’s a variety of levels ridding here, and this is by no means a race, but a tour for awareness. The pace was mostly pedestrians and we stopped and regrouped every 25km for a Gatorade brake.

We got to our hotel in Clark after lunch, about a 100km total and a few of us went for a short run off the bike at the local park, which has a really nice 2.5km path for running!

At night, we had a Japanese supper with a short de-brief from the day, a little more on cervical cancer awareness and then what’s up for tomorrow!
