Still good weather and the trails looked to be perfect. Took the Merlin out for a spin , starting along the Green Bloso route. The trails were superdry and the bike was giving me comfort and speed, a combination only good full suspension bikes offer. Injected myself on the Blue Bloso route near the Zoete Waters. The climbs on this route were challenging for my legs but I managed to keep the heartrate down and push just hard enough on the pedals to avoid the pain. I decided to follow the Blue back to the Green which led me along flatter lanes back to my starting point. At the end of the ride I could feel the strength draining from my legs. Still a long way to go but with nearly 40K and 2 hours I hope I took a step towards cycling fitness.
