Another beautiful summer day in Belgium - not - because it was barely 15 degrees C and some light drizzle was falling, hurried along by a strong southwestern breeze when I left home . Riding along the Expressweg towards the Tiensesteenweg I had the wind in my back. Following the N3 all the way to the ring around Tienen and then taking a right turn towards Hoegaarden where I could for the first time during this ride enjoy a good strong headwind. Hurrying to get to the Ravel 2 and its relative shelter. Past Jodoigne and the clouds were more and more menacing. Some light rain was falling from time to time, but the wind dried it up as soon as it fell. Following the Ravel towards Perwez but cutting to the right on the N91. The wind was blowing from my left now and even though I could maintain a good speed along the N91, I had to take care because it blew with gusts and they could put me off-centre. Speeding along I quickly arrived in Hamme Mille where I took the same direction as the day before. Through Nethen, Sint Joris Weert and then a left turn at the Zoete Waters to arrive in Korbeek Dyle. Following the Sint Jansbergsteenweg into Egenhoven and then back over Arenberg and Heverlee. Along the Naamsesteenweg through Heverlee bos into Blanden. A good ride despite the weather conditions and I was glad I did not stay at home for the same reason.
