Mountain Bike Tour

Hi Guys,

We are planning another Moountain Bike Tour for this Thursday - I know - the day that the weather will probably break - but this day worked best for people. This time a bit more of a tour that the last warm-up around the Forest - so the plan will be to drive somewhere outside of Brussels (not too far - less than one hour max) and do an interesting circuit - but not too hard - hopefully with time for a latish lunch afterwards.
