Calm and hazy but rather warm weather this morning, with temperatures reaching 19 degrees C in the morning. I decided to ride a bike because today was the last sunday of the summer holiday and that traditionally means the Landelijke Gilden organising a cycling trip around Leuven. This year they devised 2 50K laps, one north and one south of Leuven. The two could be combined for around 80K. Since I did not ride a bike these last 2 weeks I settled on a 45K lap. Starting in Blanden the lap brought me to Korbeek Dyle, Veltem Beisem and then to Winksele. Here you could either continue the lap - which I did - or switch on the northern 50K lap. I continued through Gasthuisberg, Arenberg and Heverlee to reach Haasrode, Bierbeek and then through Mollendaalbos back to Blanden. A good trip, not too far but far enough for my current cycling fitness.
