This vid is actually the end-part of my year-ender ride.

I originally did a Dec. 31 morning ride which started from Canduman, then went to Talamban via main highway, then through Banilad & IT Park, and eventually to the usual uphill favorite: JY Lahug to Tops/Busay highway run. The Lahug-to-Tops segment is a 9 kilometer+ stretch of highway which normally peaks at the Tops / Doce Pares Zipline area (about 500 meters above sea level) at the border of Bgy. Busay & Bgy. Malubog. A lot of road bikers & XC mountain bikers in Cebu like to hit these slopes on weekends because they especially like to enjoy the downhill cruise from Tops back down to JY Lahug & IT Park.

I on the other hand recently discovered a more isolated, less traveled route: coming down from Tops, instead of continuing down back to JY Lahug, I divert through Rosaldo Compound and do a quicker & shorter (about 7 km) downhill trek through Bgy. Budlaan & Bgy. San Jose, exiting at Talamban, just beside the Sunny Hills Village gate. There's hardly any traffic through this territory, and more dirt road segments to enjoy. And it's perfect for anyone who's going home to Talamban or Mandaue. (The only catch is that you don't get to do stop-overs at Willy's, JY Square Mall & IT Park anymore.)
