    Klik op de afbeelding om de link te volgen It had rained a bit last evening so that meant that the trails were perfect today. The dust was gone and there were no muddy sections. Just moist trails. I got the YBB out for a spin on my Mollendaal Trails route. Superb singletracks and narrow trails, interspersed with some broader tracks and at the end even some tarmac. Legs felt good and my heartrate was nice and low. After the Mollendaal section I decided to add a loop on the Meerdael Trails and did one lap , ending with a loop over Vaalbeek and the Prosperdreef.

    With 27 degrees it was way too hot to be comfortable but I rode out nevertheless, still clad in long shorts and sleeves. September is normally the end of the horsefly season but with the temperatures still so high I was not taking any chances, lest there still be some specimen on the prowl for my blood.
    I did 4 long laps of nearly 9km with a nice amount of heightmeters. Rode at an easy pace I could maintain throughout the entire ride. My last lap was the fastest, not by much, but still it indicates that I spread my effort well.

    I wanted to do some fast laps on my Meerdael trails so I took out the Psychlo-X instead of the YBB. Warming up sufficiently and also reconnoitering the condition of the trails I did a fast lap of the medium distance, followed by a cooling down lap and then I did a fast lap of the shortest loop. My heartrate went up to 143 which is a lot considering my recent condition but all went well and I could complete the lap with a new personal record. I did the same on the medium distance. After that I did some cooling down laps but the speed was still high enough to make this a very fast offroad ride. Legs felt good .

    It was misty and only 15 degrees C when I rode out with the Moots Psychlo-X around 10am. The plan was to ride over Korbeek Dyle and Duisburg into the Sonian Forest. There was a light drizzle and the fog was rolling over the rivers Dyle and Voer. Into the Kapucijnen forest and up the long easy climb towards Jezus Eik. From there I followed the highway towards the Rouge Cloitre area. Pausing at the ponds to take a couple of pictures before attacking the steep climb out of the valley.

    Along the N3 I rode into Tervuren and its' park. Back up to Duisburg and from there I rode towards the river Voer. I followed that little river along its left border where a bikepath twists and turns for several kilometers from Vossem to Bertem. In Bertem I rode upwards onto the plateau and then down into the Dyle Valley. From Arenberg I connected to Heverlee forest and the last couple of kilometers of this mixed ride where again on forest roads. Had a good ride with a relaxed 103bpm average heartrate.

    Another fine evening with temperatures in the high 10's. I decided to ride out on the YBB, taking in some Meerdael Forest trails. I first did the long version of my Military trail, after that reconnoitering a new trail that took me into the Kouterbos and out of it again along a different climb. It is some 8.1 km long and I lapped it in around 22 minutes. Doing another lap of that and then finishing off with another Long Meerdael Military lap. This is 7k long. Amazingly this last lap was my fastest ever . Form is good and I took it relatively easy and relaxed during the first hour. Riding back through Vaalbeek and along the Prosperdreef to reach Blanden.

    It was a little bit colder today with only 16 degrees C. But once I was warmed up it was pretty comfortable riding. No wind and the trails were great. I set out with the Moots YBB for some Meerdael trails . Did a lot of loops around the old military compound. Trying out the Langedaal trail which had dried up almost completely. Only a couple of puddles but they were easily avoided.

    I felt yesterdays' long ride in my legs throughout the day but when I got home I decided to ride out for an exploratory ride of some trails I knew in Mollendaal forest. It had been a while since I connected them all but I had no trouble riding a consistent loop of around 22K with a lot of narrow trails and constant up and down sections. The trails were fine, with only one mud-trap and 2 trees which had fallen over the singletrack. The bike was performing great and so were my legs.

    It was misty when I rode out around 10AM with the Moots Psychlo-X. But the sun was peeping through and it promised to warm up later. Over Hamme Mille and Beauvechain towards L'Ecluse and then into Hoegaarden. I found a tricky descent with a cobble section that looked Roman. Very old and wet and sharp. So easy going. From Hoegaarden some more cobbles were waiting for my 32mm tyres when I set out towards Saint Remy Geest. Pausing near the church for some pictures and a welcome break.

    Onwards to Melin and then through Bruyere back to Beauvechain and Hamme Mille. Taking a little loop into Meerdael Forest and finishing over some more cobbles in the descent into Vaalbeek.
    Had a good ride - a long one - and I felt good. Average heartrate was good around 101bpm.

    Klik op de afbeelding om de link te volgen Was late home from work but decided to ride out nevertheless. Darkness falls around 8pm in the forest so starting just before 7pm gave me an hour. I did 2 long laps in Meerdael Forest, riding fast . The weather was fine with 20 degrees C and almost no wind. The legs felt fine and I could maintain my speed until the end of the ride. I was home in time and felt good.

    Fine weather this evening and I went out for a ride on the Moots YBB. I am testing a new kind of chain lube with nanotechnology. A big word , lets see how it stands up in the field. More info at Dieci-9 . I did a pyramidical succession of laps today. Starting with the medium, then the large and then the extra large one. After that I did the large, medium and finished off with the small lap. In all nearly 40K of fun. The trails were dry and faster than a couple of days ago. My legs felt good and I could maintain a good average.
