Last Friday was declared a regular holiday throughout the country in observance of the Filipino Muslim community’s annual Eid’l Fitr or the end of the feast of Ramadan. Since it was a work-free day, we planned ahead and decided to have a long ride going to Kaybiang Tunnel via Ternate, Cavite.
Kaybiang Tunnel is said to be the longest underground road tunnel in the Philippines to date. It connects Ternate, Cavite and Nasugbu, Batangas through Mt. Palay-Palay (also known as Mt. Pico De Loro.)
Surprisingly that day, the weather was perfectly warm and cloudy from the morning until the afternoon which was unusual for the weather here in the Philippines. Thank you sweet weather gods.
It was a chill flat ride from Makati, Manila to Maragondon, Cavite. But the elevation of the 14-kilometer road from Ternate going to Puerto Azul and to Kaybiang Tunnel was unforgiving. However, a long ascend means a fun downhill ride going back home.
I was planning on bringing a DSLR, but opted for a compact camera instead since it fits perfectly in the back pocket of my jersey. So I took a few snaps during our trip, check them out below.
