As predicted, it was raining this morning, and also as predicted, I didn't bother getting out of bed to go to whatever organised ride . Instead I watched the Olympic Womens road race and was awed by the bad weather they had to endure. In the afternoon, things started to dry out a bit and even though I wasn't feeling very well I decided to go out and have a ride anyway. On the road of course. I set out over the Zoete Waters, Sint Joris Weert and Sint Agatha Rode with the plan to ride the Ludo Dierckxens ride in the opposite direction. A road race that was taking place in and around Ottenburg forced me to take some detours, even including an offroad section in the fields between Archennes and Wavre. Around Wavre I did a couple of nasty little climbs before I settled on the track of the Ludo Dierckxsens. The weather was still cloudy with the sun breaking though from time to time and a nasty wind blowing from southwesterly quarters. One could easily imagine being in October. At the end of my ride I was as yet surprised by a shower. I hope the weather returns to behave like it should in August because next week there is an extra holiday with an interesting ride not far from Nandrin. I also would like to go to Theux next saturday .
Ride Stats : 79K and 645/759 heightmeters (Polar/Garmin) in 3h29mins
