A Favorite Route for Road Cyclists

Rent a Rizal ApartmentPerched on the western slopes of the southern portion of the Sierra Madre mountain range, the mountainous Rizal province covers a total land area of 1,191 square kilometers. It is part of the so-called CALABARZON area, an economic region that comprises Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon. Although it is a mere 20 kilometers east of Manila, commuting to the metropolis from Rizal’s Antipolo City, the province’s capital, takes at least an hour. That’s because of what many consider as the horrendous traffic chaos that has plagued Metro Manila.

It can also be attributed to the numerous constructions of houses and other residential dwellings, business establishments, and public infrastructure facilities as the province’s population figure continue to grow. More and more Metro Manilans are moving eastward to Rizal’s cities and municipalities because of the relatively cheaper housing costs there.

Rizal province comprises 13 municipalities and 1 city, which is Antipolo. The municipalities are Angono, Baras, Binangonan, Cainta, Cardona, Jalajala, Morong, Pililla, Rodriguez, San Mateo, Tanay, Taytay and Teresa. The province is a popular biking route for many road cyclists because of its vast road network that includes flat areas in the Jalajala area, which also offer a panoramic view of Laguna de Bay, to the hilly slopes of Teresa and Antipolo.

Rizal’s Economic Growth

Based on a 2015 census, Rizal has close to 2.9 million inhabitants, with a density of 2,400 people per square kilometer. What used to be the bastion of huge piggery estates owned by families based in Metro Manila has become one of the more progressive provinces in the country, thanks in part to its proximity to the metropolis.

The focal hub of Rizal’s booming economy is Antipolo, where most of the trade and exchange of goods and services take place. It is also the province’s education and sports hub due to the relatively large number of academic institutions and sports and training facilities located there. While it is not exactly an agriculture behemoth, the city is famous for its cashew nuts and rice cakes. On the other hand, the province’s garment and textile manufacturing center is Taytay. Cainta, meanwhile, is slowly gaining ground as Rizal’s business process outsourcing hub, with more and more BPO-related establishments setting up operations there.
