We headed north towards Sariaya, Quezon where we had our first stop. It was an uphill climb on paved road. I was surprised that they distributed 'merienda' and water during the stop at Sariaya's municipal hall. So as of now it's 150 for the ride, the number, the lunch meal stub and this merienda. Burppp. Hmm.. I wonder if there's a raffle draw. Anyway, after the burp and the gulp we headed down to a rough road going to the shorelines of Tayabas Bay via Barangay Tumbaga. But just a few kilometers away and still far from the sea we turned left and worked our way back to Lucena City via Barangay Ibabang Talim. We passed through coconut plantations and rice fields and took a group pic on a spillway with an old train bridge as a background. After that I bolted from my group and pedalled hard back to the starting line which was about 14 kilometers away. There were already a dozen riders eating their lunch at the covered ground near the start. After finishing my lunch and 'kumustahan' with my friends who also rode, I went home and completed a 42 K ride to start my off season training. And yes, there was a raffle draw and I missed it.
