In the picturesque green surroundings of Nismes Viroinval my friend Marc and I embarked on an exhilarating mountain bike adventure last April 2023. We participated in the 'Randonnée Mouchons des Bos,' a mountain bike event organized by a local club.
Early in the morning, under a bright April sun, we set off on our bikes, eager to explore the enchanting trails that wound through the captivating landscapes. As we pedaled through the lush forests and meandering paths, the birds serenaded us with their cheerful melodies.
The trails of Viroinval challenged us with their diverse terrain, offering thrilling descents and demanding climbs. Adrenaline coursed through our veins as we conquered each obstacle, pushing ourselves to new limits and reveling in the joy of the ride.
Our journey led us through some quaint little hamlets of Viroinval where friendly locals greeted us with warm smiles, embodying the genuine spirit of Belgian hospitality. At the supply stop by the river Viroin, we quenched our thirst with refreshing beverages and savored the sweet treats.
On the last part of the journey, after a tricky part, we paused at a peaceful clearing to catch our breath and take in the breathtaking vistas. Rolling hills and idyllic meadows stretched before us, filling our hearts with awe and gratitude. It was a moment of pure bliss, shared with a cherished friend amidst nature's masterpiece.Completing our mountain bike trip, we returned to the starting point, our bikes carrying the memories of an epic ride.
To top off this great day, back at our Forest Cube in Oignies-en-Thiérache, we had the pleasure of witnessing Remco Evenepoel's impressive victory in the cycling classic Liège-Bastogne-Liège, celebrating his triumph with great advantage. Cheers to you, Remco!
