After 2 days of rain, in which I only found the courage to go out and do a walk in the forest, today saw the possibility of a road ride looming at the horizon. The day started with rain and remained showery until late in the afternoon when things dried out sufficiently for me to take a risk and ride out. 2 days of frustration gave me surprisingly good legs. I was afraid the 18 and 10K forest walks would have bothered my legs but I did not feel any effect on my biking. I started out over Heverlee to Egenhoven where I injected myself on the Sint Jansberg steenweg until I reached Neerijse. Here I took a left towards Wolfshagen and then left again to reach Sint Joris Weert. From Sint Joris Weert I followed my little lap over Nethen, Hamme Mille, Tourinnes, Beauvechain , Opvelp and Bierbeek. Passing the hour with more than 30K on my GPS gave me a good feeling. I rode through Bierbeek and set towards the Industrieterrain of Haasrode. Into Heverlee Park and then back towards Blanden along the Naamsesteenweg. A couple of local cooldown laps brought the distance just over 50K. Very pleased with this ride.
