We asked directions in the locals to point us to Angat dam. Following their directions we end-up in the highest point they called Hilltop. We refuelled ourselves there with softdrinks and some breads. We continue biking after having some rest and talks. Following the road heading to Bitbit, you need to passed the long downhill which is around 6 to 10 curves and you will end up in the bridge to Barangay San Lorenzo.

We came from Paso de Blas area and the destination is Norzagaray. Just follow the main road from SM Fairview heading to San Jose del Monte Bulacan (Quirino Avenue Extension) then to Norzagaray Bulacan. It took us 82 kms back and forth of travel via bike.
Here are some of the pictures of our captured moments:
Sidetrip to Pinagrealan cave. It is one of the historical cave in Bulacan. It is about 350 meters of rough road from the paved road heading to Ipo dam. Visiting the place has no entrance fee but they give a ticket which cost 10 pesos per head. Maybe that is their way for Income Generation for the maintenance of the place.
The cave men from L-R: Owen, Ely, and George. Do we look like Katipuneros?

The "EKSTRIM ROS RIDER". LR: Toti, Ely, George, Owen, and Allan (taking the picture).
EKSTRIM ROS RIDER in the bridge of San Lorenzo and Bitbit. I don't know the reason why they called it "bitbit". For us as a mountain biker, it is called "bitbit" because going uphill, you need to carry or push your bike.
