First freezing temperatures this year and the first time the land was white with frost. I rode out with the Obed for an easy ride. I started out along the Red Road Bloso taking me over Vaalbeek, Sint Joris Weert, Sint Agatha Rode and Ottenburg into Terlanen. Here I decided to veer away from the Red and ride towards Maleizen, taking the climb along the Terlanen church into the plains. There was no wind to speak of and the sun was welcome to provide some warmth on my face. I rode all the way to Maleizen and then took a sharp right down towards Overijse. Following the N253 until I arrived in Huldenberg where I rode up the Smeysberg crest, took a left and zoomed down the Smeysberg again. Another climb took me back on the crest which I followed towards Loonbeek. From here I took the N253 again until Egenhoven, where I took a right along the Gaston Geens laan into the Arenberg Wetenschapspark . Right again nto Heverlee and then along the Naamsesteenweg back towards Blanden. The average temperature during this ride was 1 degree C and the little wind that was blowing came from the East.
