This morning saw me riding out in minus 4 degree C weather. I took the Obed and decided to take it for a spin on the main roads. The smaller roads were icy and the offroad was a mix of old and new snow, tricky and unforgiving. So the roads it would be. When I came to Beauvechain I got the company of 2 other mountainbikers who were doing a bit of road training. One of them was strong and insisted on taking the lead. The other one was of the 'following' kind. So I became a follower as well and we maintained a good average riding through Beauvechain, Tourinnes and Hamme Mille towards Nethen and Sint Joris Weert. I bid my two companions farewell and continued alone for a last loop over the Zoete Waters and Vaalbeek into Blanden. The wind was blowing strong from the south bothering me mostly during the first half of the ride. When I got home it started snowing lightly.

At home I finished off my ride with a 30 minute cooldown session on the Tacx Satori. Changing shoes, taking off excess clothing and my helmet, wearing dry underwear and I was set for an easy roll on resistance one. The music of Dio accompanied me.
