January 26 2012 - Ride out to San Mateo

In my previous blog entry, I've talked about how I loved bike commuting. Every little chance to ride my bike, I take it with no reservation. My recent ride to my home town of San Mateo, Rizal proved that exploring the Metro's streets can offer surprises even the most jaded of all commuters.
The 53 kilometer trip from Binan to San Mateo took me 3 hours 55 minutes total time to complete. Rests were plenty as I took time to save memories through pictures.

Headquarters of the Philippine Army. Once a powerful army in Asia, its strength is now a fraction in its heyday
View of Marcos highway atop a footbridge in Ligaya. At the background are parts of Cogeo and Marikina
A view of Pasig River from Kalawaan. You could see smoke coming from a small building on fire at the background. Taken at around 5:30 in the afternoon.
The perks of biking is that you can discover places that offer delicious barbecue, as this one called MYC from Pasig offers. Locaed near Malinao Barangay Hall. Their barbacued pork and isaw is delicious.
