Another cold night followed by a clear and sunny, but cold, day. In the evening I rode out with the Obed for a little stroll into Meerdael Forest. I did not want to take the singletrails because I suspected them to be a mix of harder frozen tracks - which is good - and muddy patches where the sun could reach the forest floor. I was correct because even though most of the trails had stiffened up substantially these last couple of days, there where places, even on the bigger trails, where the puddles were not frozen and there was some mud. I took the Red Bloso in the opposite direction and after reaching the point where it touches the Blue, I followed that Blue Bloso in the direction of Vaalbeek. I had decided to make it a relatively short ride so I turned home after some 20K to make it a nice short relaxing ride. With an average temperature of 0 degrees C it was not too cold either, at least not with the right thermal protection.
