Roadbook O2 Bikers | Saint-Hubert
Last year, Koen and I rode here a Bloso route in Saint Hubert but quite frankly this was not very special. There used too much wide gravel and forest roads, and just a single trail between. Recently I had downloaded the road book on the MTB bike magazine O² Bikers into the GPS unit that we drove today.
Johan drove specially from the Kempen to here by car to explore this road book with us. After a steep climb we drove straight into the off road field and a bit later a first technical descent on tree roots. We had just started and it was already much better than the local MTB routes.
So it went even further, single trails which alternated with the broader paths and a lot of climbing, after only 15 km we already had nearly 450 vertical meters, The second part of the route was somewhat more divided in terms of climbing, still long climbs but more varied and more flatter strips between.
After just over 35 km we came back to the centre where we enjoyed an ice cold refreshment before we returned back to Rendeux. Thanks to Johan for the company and we’ll meet again within two weeks here in the Ardennes.
