Default Marikina to Trinoma/SM North

San po ba safest way from marikina to Trinoma?
Ang iniisip ko kasi Marikina-UP-Commonwealth-Circle-North Ave.
From UP pwede pa ba mag left to Commonwealth papuntang Circle o kailangan ko na maguturn?

hmm...ang gamit kong route is from Katipunan -> Tandang Sora -> left to Commonwealth -> Circle -> North ave.

kasi from Tandang Sora hanggang Philcoa, pwede ka sa sidewalk. tapos you can be a gutter hugger sa Circle, although ingat lang sa Visayas, pero pwedeng tiyempuhan yung mga sasakyan dun.

Going back is another matter, I'll take a different and longer route kasi takot akong tumawid sa quezon ave at east ave kapag nasa Circle.

From UP 3 ang option mo papuntang Trinoma. Options 1 or 2 ang ginagamit ko papuntang Trinoma tapos reverse ng option 3 ang ginagamit ko pabalik.

1.) Labas ka sa may Ylanan/Central, buhat bike patawid ng footbridge tapos take Central Avenue labas ng Visayas. tapos U turn sa Visayas, kanan sa Road 1 (ang land mark nito McDo or pwede ring kumanan sa 7-Eleven, lalabas din ata sa Road 1 yun) tapos ang labas nun sa Mindanao Avenue. Depende sa situation pwede kang makapag-U Turn sa U-turn slot sa Mindanao, tumawid ng diretso sa Mindanao or buhat bike sa isang malapit na foot bridge. Then kapag tawid diretso na papuntang Trinoma.

2.) From University avenue, kaliwa sa CP Garcia tapos sabay sampa sa sidewalk at magbike sa sidewalk all the way to Philcoa, tapos buhat bike sa footbridge then Elliptical, tapos North Avenue then Trinoma na.

3.) From university avenue, kaliwas sa CP garcia tapos sampa sa sidewalk at magbike sa sidewalk all the way to Philcoa, tapos kaliwa ka dun sa kanto malapit sa mini-stop ( coming from elliptical yun ang unang kanto, kung galing ng UP after siya ng foot bridge) tapos dirediretso lang, ang dulo nun parang letter T yung road, kaliwa (kapag kumanan ka ang labas nun National Housing Authority/elliptical) tapos kanan sa susunod na kanto (malapit lang yun) then diretso ang labas nun Kalayaan. From Kalayaan kanan sa Matino st. (hindi ako sure kung yun nga yung name nun street, pero katapat nun ay Eunilane) then diretso, ang labas nun PLDT/Heart Center, then kaliwa sa East Ave. tapos kanan sa BIR road diretso hanggang makatawid sa Quezon Ave tapos Agham then North Ave. na. OR from Philcoa counterflow sa Elliptical hanggang Kalayaan ave, then from there sundan mo nalang yung direction mentioned above. (pwede mo rin siyang gamitin pabalik)

Default Re: Marikina to Trinoma/SM North

may ramp po ba sa footbridge o talagang buhat ng bike kailangan?

medyo mabigat bike ko

Sa option 3 pwede pala akong di na dumaan ng UP. Marikina- Katipunan- Xavierville Ave-V luna- BIR rd - Agham- North ave

di po ba delikado tumawid ng Q ave. galing ng BIR rd?

Kung university ave. ang daan mo, yup may buhat bike kasi pupunta ka westbound lane ng commonwealth from philcoa. pwede ring sa tapat ka ng technohub tumawid para hindi counterflow.

pero kung diretso ka ng tandang sora from katips. wala nang buhat bike, left turn ka na agad sa commonwealth, may stoplight dun kaya walang problem.

yung tawid naman ng q. ave from BIR road + Agham road, safe naman, i've done it quite a number of times. pero....yun eh habang maliwanag pa. i do my best not to pass there kapag gabi na.

in case of emergency or duda ka na sa sitwasyon, kapag pabalik na. kapag ginagabi ako, 'di baleng malayo, pero from SM north, punta ako sa circle, counterflow pabalik ng visayas. tapos sa underpass ako dumadaan papuntang circle. then underpass ulit papuntang kalayaan. mabigat ang bike pero...tiis tiis lang at least safe ka dahil may mga guard sa underpass.

medyo...may mga incident reports din kasi sa philcoa footbridge kaya hindi ako basta sumusugal dun, he he.

try this:

from marikina -> katipunan -> xavierville -> vluna road -> turn right to malakas st. -> left turn to matapang st. -> BIR road -> agham road -> north avenue...

that's the safest for me. :-)

may stoplight naman sa crossing ng BIR Road, Quezon Ave at Agham. Sa Agham kahit ako alangan minsan, pero everytime na dumadaan ako dun maliwanag man o hindi, lagi akong malapit sa island at paspasan ang pag-pedal.

its more yung tao (mayroon daw kasing mga holdaper sa area, kahit na may police community precinct malapit sa Ombudsman) at yung mga pedicab na walang ilaw/madalas mag-counter flow.

err..'di ka aabot ng Luzon Ave, he he.

Diretso ka lang ng Katipunan -> Tandang Sora -> Congressional -> Mindanao

dagdag ka nga lang ng 2 - 3 km. sa byahe.

Ang layo niyan sir pero pwede. Maluwag naman yung congressional ave. extension (pwedeng humataw at relatively madaling ipadyak kung papuntang Mindanao ave.), pero pagdating ng Congressional ave., commercial area so expect ang mga idle/maneuvering vehicles sa kalye. Hindi lang ako sigurado kung pwedeng mag-left turn sa Mindanao avenue kung galing ng Congressional ave, baka kasi bawal.

he he, bawal nga, you need to make a u-turn paglampas ng mindanao intersection.

personally i wouldn't take the congressional route, buti pang from tandang sora -> congre -> visayas -> circle -> north ave.

malayo rin but it's better than making a u-turn with "get out of my way" vehicles behind you.

TY sa inyo

Nagcommute ako sa Quiapo at Cartimar kahapon para maghanap ng helmet at backpack. Presta valve cap lang nabili ko, P30. Mas mahal pa yung pamasahe ko. Kaya naisapan ko na tumuloy na ng SM North para di masayang lakad ko. Nakabili na ako ng backpack.

Yes, walang kaliwaan dun bro. Gawain ko dun pag maluwag ang lane sisingit sa mga concrete na harang or mag-uuturn sa pedestrian na may stop light.
