Tour of Hope day 4.

Hey again, this is 4 blogs in 4 days, woah the most I have ever done! Lets see how long I can keep this up eh! So after re-loading on lots of rice for supper and breaky, well, cereal for me ;) We where all faced with the longest day of the tour, 120km!

Heres a picture of us, rolling out of Dagupian on our way to the rolling hills of the in-land of La Union and of course, we had to deal with a few jeepneys! What did you expect, its the Philippines!

Heres a picture of me yesterday, side by side with my little Joyette! She is actucally feeling sick since yesterday, problems with sinuses and diarrhea! I know these sound like lame excuses, but being slightly de-hydrated on such hot days and long rides, can really hurt! But shes strong and a veteran of about half a dozen tour of hope!

At the finish, after another hot day, the last few kilometers had some serious traffic and a super hilly section just before we got greated by local doctors in San Fernando, La Union.
