Today the first ride of the new season with the KBC mountainbike club started at the Heverlee army barracks. The pace was easy and we did a loop through the Army grounds before entering Heverleebos. From Heverleebos we then reached the Zoete Waters where we made the connection with Meerdael Forest for some more technical and steeper bits. The group counted 9 men and one woman and the pace was accomodating to the slowest rider. Near the end we had to stop frequently to wait for the slower riders on the hills but in all everything went fine. A good easy training for me, and the trails were dry and fast. A little bit of wind made it not as warm as yesterday evening but I wore arm and leggings. The Moots YBB got a good cleaning on tuesday so it performed flawlessly throughout the ride.
Ride Stats : 27K and 245/290 heightmeters (Polar/Garmin) in 1h30mins
