It had been a while since I last used my mountainbike but today I was set on taking the Merlin out for a mixed ride around Meerdael Forest. Mixed because I did not want to ride in the forest too long because the rains of the last couple of weeks might have made it muddy. Mixed also because I had to get used to the different body and hand positions. Starting out towards Mollendaal where I took the long cobbled climb to Beauvechain. Onwards to reach La Bruyere and then making my way back to the forest. There was some mud here and there but nothing major. Into La Nicaise and climbing out of it towards Nethen. I entered the forest again past La Hetraie and then took a section of my Meerdael Lap into Vaalbeek. A little dabble into Heverlee forest brought me back to La Foresta where I took the Prosperdreef towards Meerdael forest again. I enjoyed the ride and look forward to some more ventures on these trails during autumn.
