I used to live there, in Veldhoven. (worked at the NatLab)
I remember once i also was into offroad cycling, lasted about 2 months. Got me a nice (affordable) mountainbike and went through the forest south of Waalre (there was a nice lake there). Got home and later took a shower. When toweling dry i found a tick eating its way into my leg. In the car to the Veldhoven hospital emergency room I went where they took it out and gave me two tetanus shots. That was the last time I went offroading thorugh the high grass.
Here in CH i still off road but only on wide forest roads making sure I do not touch any tall grass.
Suprising, that you've lived like 6 miles away from my town! I bike near the lake every day, for commuting towards school.(the lake is called ''het gat van Waalre'' though, haha). Right now, the lake is surrounded with newbuild houses. Next time, stay out of the grass and hit the dirt, there is enough of forests in this area to explore
PM me if you're heading back sometime, if you're in for a ride around here!
