Would it be fun to ride it again with my ten year old son. Is it something he could enjoy as well or is it just something I want?
We decide to go for it and plan a long weekend in Limburg.
On Friday we did ride the “sint pietersberg” , this new trail is very technical and some nice views.
On Saturday we did relax and picked up our race numbers.
Sunday 07 october it is raceday.
It was a bit colder then the last vieuw days so we did start in our tights.
Then the waiting begins before we are set to go.
And the we can ride on. After a few corners we did the the trails for ourselves. Passing by some riders with mechanical issues.
It gets warmer when we have our first climb, so we stripped down to shorts.
During the ride we did get a lot of reaction. My son was really motivated to ride on. On some climbs he was able to pass some adults as well, wich made him go even faster.
At the end we have rode a 42,5 km ( 26 miles) and had 580 altitude meters.
Proud of what we did we drove home to enjoy the photo’s and did create the video.
We have been mountainbike a long time with the familiy. We did notice it is hard to make nice downhill track is there is no cablecar nearby.
We parked our car on the top and rolled down the mountain and I did cycle up again to get the car.
A few weeks a go we did test the rope in Belgium. Our son (10 years) has developed quite some riding skills but he does miss the strength on long climbs.
(for now lucky for me 😉 )
This summer we plan to use it in Austria where climbs a much longer.
A few weeks ago we were in Friesland already, we then cycled with our tour-bikes the “elfstedentocht“.
The second day of Pentecost (whit-monday) we did ride the 240 kilometer eleven cities bike ride.
We were accompanied by 15.000 other bikers.
Different categories of cyclists participate in the tour. Fast ‘race’-cyclists, sporty cyclists and real recreational cyclists. The bicycles of the participants also vary. During the tour we see a lot of racing bikes, but also ‘regular’ bicycles, transport bikes, tandems and recumbent bicycles.
I only rode 140 km, but it was a great ride to follow.
