The weather is forecasted to be sunny and beautiful this Sunday,

Let's enjoy one of the last day of this summer!

ACTIVITY PROGRAM: Rouge Cloitre - Chateau de Tervuren - Rouge Cloitre. It's a beautiful ride in the "Forest de Soignes", 25 km round trip. Did you know that the Soigne Forest is one of the largest beech tree forest in Europe and Brussels is quite lucky to have it so close to its city. Moreover, for some unknown reason, there are not so many people visiting it. So, biking in it gives you a wonderful sense of being in touch with the forest.

You will have to be a bit patient at times as I will navigate with a map of the forest.

Once at the" Chateau de Tervuren", we will rest on the lawn or at a Cafe and have some drink and food before returning.

DEPARTURE TIME: We leave at 14:20. It would be difficult to catch us if your are late.

SPORT LEVEL: Intermediate and up. You have to be in good physical condition. Bear in mind that the forest his hilly. We don't go off track and remain on the paths which are relatively easy but with some bumpy sections.

WHAT BIKE? Your own bike should be OK but not a race bike or a city bike with thin tires. We go off road on paths. There is almost no dirt section. But the paths are not perfectly maintained. So, there might be some small dirt sections and there are some bumpy ones. Avoid Villo bikes which are quite heavy if you can. Experienced biker can try them but it is more tiring.

You can also post a request on the wall if you need one. May be someone can help.

WHAT TO BRING? A bottle of water and what you need to fix your tire, snacks for the rest - optional.

DISCLAIMER: each participant will have his(her) own insurance. There is no insurance provided by the group consul covering this event. By participating, you also declare being physically fit for cycling 25 km. In case of any doubt, please consult your doctor.
