Well, yesterdays' forecast showed a grim and wet 21st of July but when I woke up the sun was shining. A quick look at www.meteox.be convinced me that I would better get on my bike. Not for a long ride, because I was recovering from two 100K rides and because there was an interesting stage in the Tour de France today. I did not want to miss that. So I settled for a quick dash and rode over Heverlee, the Zoete Waters and Sint Joris Weert. Here I again encountered my friend Roger L., who was also doing a quick ride before watching the Tour on TV. We briefly spoke and went our own way. Riding on to Nethen, then Hamme Mille and Beauvechain, through Opvelp and Neervelp , turning left to reach Bremt and then passing Bierbeek and Haasrode to close the lap. Legs felt fine and I focussed on high rpm's with minimal power. The sun was shining throughout the entire ride, a first for this week.
Let me close by saying "Vive La Belgique ! Leve Belgie !" and lets hope this fine weather on our National Day inspires the politicians to make haste of a new government.
