Sunny sunday. It looked like a perfect early spring day so I decided to take the Hilset out for an easy recovery ride. My goal was to ride over Bierbeek, Meldert and Hoegaarden towards Jodoigne. There I took the busy N29 in the direction of Gembloux. A couple of kilometers further I took a right turn towards Dongelberg. I had hoped that the castle grounds would be open to the public but again the gates were closed. So again I had to settle for a makeshift picture taken from the street.
Moving further onwards towards Incourt and then over the plains to Longueville. There were a lot of cyclist by now and I was getting passed by flocks of multicolored shouting people striding carbon steeds. Into Grez and then through Archennes, Florival and Sint Agatha Rode. The weather now was clement and the sun was really doing wonders. I felt elated and even though I began to feel the kilometers in my legs I enjoyed the ride to the end. Past the Zoete Waters and then a last loop into Blanden before arriving home.
