The Extreme Northern Loop (Part 1 of 4)

1900+ kms, 14 provinces, while traveling alone for 9 days.

It would have been very easy to do this by backpacking, but I figured, why not take it a notch higher?

Easily one of my favorite trips so far in my riding career.

Truly one of the more breathtaking trips you could ever take would be the Northern Luzon Loop. From fields to mountains, to beaches, to breathtaking sceneries from 7000 ft., the experience it will give you would definitely be one you’ll never forget. I had the time of my life in this trip. 9 days away from everything, and everyone. Just me and my bike.

I actually went here with no real purpose in mind as I consider myself simply as a person with an ardor for riding.

Join me in discovering the beautiful spots our very own Northern Luzon has to offer through this blog.

Day 1

Our of pure excitement, I was not able to sleep (I woke up 8 am the previous day), but I took it upon myself to go on with the trip, no matter what since it was delayed a couple of times already.

Since I had my full-tank of gas last night (13++ liters) and with all my bags packed and ready as far as 2 weeks ago (there was a recent typhoon), and with everyone else still sleeping, I left the house at 4 am, August 20th, 2012.

I took the South Super Hi-Way – Nagtahan – C3 – Monumento route to get out of Manila in a hurry since I wanted to end up in Laoag City before the day ends.

Breezed through the province of Bulacan and after some 80+ kms, I had my first stop somewhere between San Fernando and Angeles in Pampanga.

It wasn’t smooth sailing though as due to the heavy rains the past few days, some roads were flooded.
