Unlike the usual beach trips and surfing one might think of when mentioning “Siargao,” TV host Gretchen Ho and musician Ebe Dancel had some other plans on the island: cover more than 100 kilometers through cycling.

Ho said it was a personal milestone to reach her first 100 kilometers in Siargao, and achieved it along with Dancel and others, a feat she posted about on her Instagram account yesterday, Nov. 17.


“NEW ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: 128km in the beautiful island of Siargao!! My first centennial ride in Siargao’s first Island Bike Ride Tour,” she said. “Sobrang worth it ng ride, sana maulit ang #VeloDeSiargao (The ride was so worth it, hope we can do #VeloDeSiargao again)!”

In the series of photos, Ho can be seen enjoying the ride along the idyllic sceneries of Siargao. In one photo, she holds up her bike against the backdrop of hundreds of coconut trees.


Ho joked that it was her “athlete’s pride” which helped her overcome the fatigue from the exhausting 128-kilometer ride.

“Me to all the ahons on the road: Lahat ng hirap natatapos din!!! Ika nga ni @ebedancel… ‘pain is temporary’ Pero pagdating ng 100.. ang sakit na ng katawan ko, buti na lang marami akong athlete’s pride,” she said.

(All hardships will end! As @ebedancel said, “pain is temporary” but when we reached 100 [kilometers], my body was already hurting, good thing I have lots of athlete’s pride.)

“The roads were mostly smooth & it was nice to see the other side of the island — beyond the waves & the night life. What a joy to experience this with you @ebedancel!” she added.

Dancel meanwhile thanked Ho for spending the cycling trip with him and other cyclists, as posted on his Instagram earlier today, Nov. 18.

“Rode 128 kilometers around Siargao with this amazing woman,” he said. “Happy to have spent the weekend with you and other awesome cyclists. Basta @gretchenho, pain is temporary.”

Ho also thanked her new cycling friends and fitness coach Dwan Abantao for guiding and pacing their team in the Siargao trip. JB
