Quick bike ride around the Nuvali Lake in Sta. Rosa

My daughter and the Brompton with the Nuvali lake in the background
Drove up to Tagaytay last weekend. Incidentally had the Brompton in the trunk. When my wife wanted to make a stop at Nuvali to check out the outlet stores, I immediately jumped on the chance to explore the bicycle infrastructure in the area. So, I unfolded the bike, installed the Bromp-seat, and then Bea and I went.

Nuvali, a commercial and residential development in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, has a separate trail for mountain bikers. We did not take that. What we toured was the bike lane encircling the man-made lake.

The area is bike friendly. There is ample bike parking, where you can lock and leave your bikes while shopping or eating. Nuvali also rents out bikes at the park in case you forgot your bike at home and wish to ride one.
But they do have a strict no helmet no ride policy. Bea and I were approached by a security guard because we didn't have helmets on us. (My bad)

Bea and I encircled the entire lake (it's not that big). We wanted to ride the ferry boat that docked at Solenad, but the line was long. It's okay. Gives us a reason to come back. : )
Bea not happy we can't ride the boat.
