Plans for next weekend:
On Sunday October 1st , there is an interesting ride in Aubel , as part of the Gileppe Hautes Fagnes challenge.
The Aubel area is characterized by its thorny hedges, so I will take enough spare tyres and a good pump with me.
The area is not as hilly as Theux but I should envision a hill factor close to 20 nevertheless.
Climbs will be shorter and less steep .
Also, not as much rocks and stuff..more meadows and some forest areas
but mostly open areas.
Talking of Theux: since I suffer from a severe case of Theux addiction I am planning to go to the region again
next saturday (september 30) to do a combination of the Green and Blue Route..
I did this combo last week but this time I won't go into the Ninglinspo area this time
leave at the Chateau de Franchimont at 10am
45-50K ride (with 1100 heightmeters at least) should take about 3-4 hours
Lots will depend on how the weather holds.
