135 kilometers from Manila is General Nakar, Province of Quezon. We took the Marikina – Infanta route, also known as MARILAQUE hiway. From Marcos hiway, go straight all the way to Sampaloc, Tanay. The roads here are newly cemented and asphalted. You will encounter minor potholes due to rains, but very minimal.
We want to visit the river.
After this arc, we turned left towards the river.
We rested for a while under the trees. It’s 12 PM.
On to the river, on foot.
Now back to the bikes and get our a#%$s home.
