Another beautiful day. The morning brought the sun out and with around 12 degrees C already at 9AM I rode out with the Litespeed Obed for a spin along my Meerdael laps. Starting with the Base lap and working my way up to the long Ignatius lap, that brought me to the Arboretum in Heverlee forest. This yielded around 40K and my speed was high even though I was taking it relatively easy. Focussing on enjoying the ride and breathing in the pure forest air. My heart stayed calm and I managed an average heartrate of 108bpm whilst averaging more than 22.5kph on a parcours that was not exactly flat, but not too hilly either. The trails were in excellent condition, moist at some places and tricky with the leaves covering everything up. There was less traffic than yesterday but I still had to come to a full stop for a couple of times because of big groups of walkers spread over the entire trail. No harm was done to them and I kept friendly and yielded way like a tru gentleman. After all , we are all out here to enjoy the beauty of the Autumn forest.
