Afternoon you arrive to Quezon town where you spend the overnight until the next adventurous riding day.

Day 2: Quezon - Rizal (60 kilometers / 37 miles on paved and rustic roads)

After breakfast, visit the coastal town for some paperwork. Sit back on your seat and pass tropical hillsides, green rice paddies, and tiny villages bathed in morning light till you reach Rizal town. Then, drop off your backpacks and get groceries for the next two trekking days. Later, use some free time to visit the small town's eatery or relax at the beach.

Day 3: Rizal - Ransang (25 kilometers / 16 miles on paved and rustic roads)

Ready for a challenge? Go for an early morning ride till the dropping point, then put on your hiking shoes and head off for a four to six-hour trek through the ancient growth jungle. Hike up, down, and around rocks and roots; take memorable photos of the giant trees. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the rushing river or cool off after you arrive to the Tau't Bato tribe.

Day 4: Ransang - Brook's Point (90 kilometers / 56 miles on paved and rustic roads)

Wake up to sounds of the jungle and watch how the sunlight uncover the humid forest. Only a short distance away, the tribe's bat hunting cave, is definitely worth to go for.

After, get back to the nifty two wheels for the final driving and ride towards north. On the way back - if you still have energy - opt for a beautiful road of south-west.
