The original Hike + Bike tour was designed to follow the 31 kilometer trek across Busuanga that children took to get to school. All your money went to build the first Cheey High School, so that students no longer had to take the arduous two-way weekly hike across the island.
With the school now built and much of the path overgrown as the children no longer have to walk it, we’ve shortened the route but without losing the objective of making education ACCESSIBLE.
We offer two itineraries: the Sugod trails and Amaha-Sinibayan track.
What we do for the children? For every Sugod trip in the 2023/24 school year we are donating a mountain bike to a child who has the longest distance to trek to school: you can even present yours to the worthy student recipient — and walk back! There are 12 bikes on offer. As of writing, there are 10 left! Sign up and do your bit to make education more accessible to rural Filipino kids!
The Sugod trails wend their way from Minit in Cheey west through farmland, bamboo woods and jungle, crossing creeks up to 20 times. The network of single tracks and feeder roads to Minit cover some 20 kms.
The Amaha-Sinibayan bike trail takes you through cogon grass farmland (grass used for thatched roofing of local houses), before moving into a challenging single track through tropical rainforest. The track ends at the entrance to Sinibayan Waterfall, where the 45 minute trek through the rainforest begins. On the hike, your guide will show you different trees and plants locals use traditionally and from day to day.
At Sinibayan Waterfall, the crew prepares a barbecue lunch while you take a well-deserved relaxing dip in the cool rock pools fed by the small waterfall. After lunch and a relax, we hike back to our bikes and finish the trip with a 4×4 transfer back to Palawan SandCastles or Coron Town. Biking distance is around 15kms. While mountain bikes last, a bicycle will also be donated for every Amaha-Sinibayan trip run.
