This morning saw dry but cold weather. A little breeze from the northeast would not bother me whilst I started my ride though Meerdael Forest towards Sint Joris Weert. Over the Wolfshagen ridge and into Loonbeek. Out of the Ijse Valley and soon I was in Duisbutg where I entered the Sonian Forest. I had remarked that the offroad trails where sweating, the thaw had set in. Sticking to the bigger roads I made good progress and soon I was past Jezus Eik and rode straight on towards Sint Genesius Rode. Following the western edge of the forest I came to Argentueil, at the edge of Waterloo. Undercrossing the R0 and then turning left for the long way back to the north to reach Groenendaal station. I was close to Hoeilaart now and stopped at Filip Sport to pick up a Polar S Speed sensor for my Moots Psychlo-X. Following the valley of the river Yse past Overijse and Huldenberg I tackled the ridge of the Smeysberg through the Margijsbos to make it back to the Wolfshagen. I noticed some new BLOSO markers here, black and when I was going in the other direction I also saw some Green and Blue markings. Looks like some new BLOSO trails need to be explored. Passing through Sint Joris Weert, up the very steep Speelbergstraat and then along the Weertse Dreef until I took a left/right towards the Nethensebaan. Into Vaalbeek and riding towards Blanden I crossed my friend Roger L. We chatted up a little before we each went our seperate ways. I was near home, only a little loop left.
Did a fine distance today, very pleased with my ride.
