BISIKLETA IGLESIA 2017: Visiting 7 Churches in Batangas

Lima Park Hotel Bisikleta Iglesia 2017

The Province of Batangas is an awesome weekend destination near Metro Manila. It is home to lovely beaches, historical sites, churches, trekking sites, and nice hotels and resorts. One of my favorites is Lima Park Hotel in Malvar, Batangas - the only 4-star hotel in Batangas.

Lima Park Hotel Bisikleta Iglesia 2017

Just last weekend, we were invited by Lima Park Hotel to cover their annual Bisikleta Iglesia. Now on its 4th year, Bisikleta Iglesia took the bikers on a religious journey with scenic routes that started in Malvar, to the hilly winding roads of Balete, all the way to Lipa City.

Rose Landicho, Lima Park Hotel’s Director for Marketing and Corporate Communications, shares that "Father Robert is an ideal pilgrimage leader as he is known for using sports to express his faith andadvocacies.“We are blessed because for the first time we are having a priest join our Bisikleta Iglesia. The participation of Fr. Robert Reyes no doubt makes this Bisikleta Iglesia more meaningful and inspiring.”
