I wanted to do a longer ride today. Did not want to ride on the road so that left finding a suitable mountainbike challenge. The 2 Valleien route in Overijse has always been one of my favorites. Ondulating in and out of the valleys of the river Ijse and Lane, short steep climbs followed by technical descents. A great job for the Merlin. Starting in Sint Agatha Rode I quickly emerged in the roller coaster ride. Taking it easy on the climbs, focussing on good form and trying to keep my heartrate in the safe zone. This meant a lot of little ring stuff but I managed to ride them all and even felt stronger when the ride developed. I had a bit of history today since I already hiked for almost 3 hours this morning. Had a great ride and was pleased to be able to enjoy the trails and the bike on this dry and not-too-warm day. The trails were fast and hard,not a drop has fallen this last week and this meant high speeds on the flat and in the descents.
