220 cyclists embark on 37-km journey via newly opened route to Cagayan via Balong, Tabuk City

Tabuk City, Kalinga – Apart from joyriding, what better way to explore a newly opened road than pedaling with friends and fellow cyclists?


On Saturday, May 11, more than 200 bike enthusiasts from Kalinga and Cagayan participated in the 37-kilometer Fun Bike Adventure from Tabuk City to Tuao, which was initiated by Governor James Edduba and Governor Manuel Mamba.   


The adventure was conceptualized to introduce the Department of Tourism and Department of Trade and Industry Convergence Road connecting Kalinga to Cagayan via Balong – Kinama, Rizal – Tuao East.

The 220 participants began pedalling from the Kalinga Provincial Capitol and then took the road to Balong and Kinama until they reached the finish line at Casily Lake, Tuao East. This took the cyclists an hour and a half until they got to their destination.


As cited by the Kalinga Provincial Information Office, Gov. Edduba emphasized that the newly opened convergence road connecting Kalinga and Cagayan plays a part in promoting tourism and facilitating national development plans. He further said that the project will also be an advantage to the Regional Development Council’s implementation of growth areas.


For his part, Gov. Mamba conveyed that the people of Cagayan and Kalinga have a historical relationship and that the road is significant in maintaining and strengthening this rapport.
