A new year family adventure in Bicol

We have been roughing it up on the Mayon lava trail riding the all-terrain vehicle (ATV) for about an hour when my sister-in-law noticed an unusual gush of smoke from the volcano's peak. She asked our ATV tour guide if such a smoke was normal, but he did not seem bothered. Instead, he was preoccupied with taking our photos and videos, giving hand signals as we approach different types of terrain, reminding us to keep a single line so he can easily see us and bring us safely to the lava wall and back to the base camp. Half an hour after, we reached the lava wall, the sight of the 2006 eruption. Here, we had to climb to get to the helipad with a mesmerizing view of Mayon's perfec...Keep on reading: A new year family adventure in Bicol.....»»

Le Tour rescheduled to June for SEAG preps, rehabilitation of calamity-hit Bicol Region

The organizer of the Le Tour de Filipinas (LTdF) has sought for the rescheduling of the race’s 10th edition in its effort to actively join preparations for the country’s hosting of the 30th Southeast Asian Games and to allow adequate time for the rehabilitation of calamity-stricken provinces in the Bicol Region. UBE Media Inc. President Donna Lina said the LTdF was originally scheduled for February 17 to 21 — this time as a five-stage race from the previous four stages to level up in its first decade. But because of the country’s hosting of the SEA Games from November 30 to December 11 also this year, Lina stressed the LTdF’s role in helping prepare the country’s top riders for the biennial multi-sport regional competitions that the country is hosting only for the fourth time after 1981, 1991 and 2005. UBE Media has written the International Cycling Union or UCI, the world governing body for cycling, through the Asian Cycling Confederation and PhilCycling under President Rep. Abraham Tolentino and Chairman Bert Lina to move the race to June 14 to 18. “The Le Tour organization wanted to help harness our cyclists to their best possible condition in time for the SEA Games,” Lina said. “And because of the recent calamity that struck Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon and the rest of the Bicol Region, it has become more imperative that we postpone the race.” Albay, Camarines Sur and Sorsogon were declared under a state of calamity because of tropical depression Usman, which caused landslides and massive flooding in areas where the LTdF’s 10th editon would specifically pass through, particularly in the town of Sagnay which was badly hit. “In as much as we are ecstatic to celebrate 10 years of the Le Tour, we are one in prayers that our countrymen in the Bicol Region recover fast and well from the calamity,” Lina said. Last year, the LTdF was moved from February to late May after Mayon Volcano’s eruption in January. This year’s LTdF will start in Tagaytay City, main hub of all cycling disciplines—road, mountain bike and BMX—for the SEA Games—and will pass through Batangas, Quezon, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay and Sorsogon. Legaspi City will host the finish of the five-stage Category 2.2 UCI Asia Tour race. June will be a busy month for Philippine cycling with the conduct of the PhilCycling National Championships for Road, MTB and BMX and a proposed UCI National Commissaires’ Course for the three disciplines. The LTdF and national championships will principally cap trials for the selection of athletes for the SEA Games. El Joshua Carino of Philippine Navy-Standard Insurance is expected to defend his crown and will be racing alongside 2014 winner Mark John Lexer Galedo of continental team 7-Eleven Cliqq Roadbike Philippines. Newly-minted continental team Go For Gold and the National Under-23 Team of the PhilCycling are also seeing action......»»
