It had rained yesterday so instead of riding out I did a 10K forest walk. Today saw the return of the sun and dry weather. So I took the Psychlo-X out for a ride that would take me to Heverlee and Bertem for a start. Riding through Leefdaal and Duisburg next. Eizer where I took the climb up to the plateau which woul lead me into Huldenberg. From Huldenberg I followed the river Ijse towards Overijse where I rode on until I reached Maleizen. Here I took a left into Brabant Wallon and I arrived in Rosieres. From Rosieres I rode to the Wavre industrial terrain and then straight to Ottenburg, Sint Agatha Rode and Sint Joris Weert.The Zoete Waters and Vaalbeek led me to Blanden again. This was a great ride. A bit fresh at the stat but when the sun gathered strength the temperatures were quite pleasant. A breeze from the south accompanied me.
Ride Stats : 58K and 520 heightmeters (Garmin) in 02h12mins
A long ride again today. Starting out just before 9AM with the Psychlo-X I rode over Bierbeek and Willebringen to Hoegaarden. Here I took the Ravel2 to Jodoigne. Pressing onwards until I reached the split in Ramillies. Taking the right towards Perwez I arrived on the N91 in Petit-Rosiere. Taking a right again I followed the N25 until I arrived in Incourt. taking a right again into Dongelberg and then a left through the fields to reach Lathuy . Arriving on the N240 now I followed that in the direction of Pietrebais. Taking a right towards La Bruyere and following a cobbled road (by mistake) which led me to Beauvechain. Riding on to Neervelp and then towards Bierbeek and Mollendaal where I entered the Meerdael Forest . Crossing that towards the N25 which I followed into Blanden. It was a good ride, the weather was perfect, perhaps just a tad cool at the start and when the sun hid behind the clouds. No rain though and not much wind either.
Ride Stats : 76K and 570 heightmeters (Garmin) in 02h46mins
A long ride was planned for me today, so I set out just before 9AM with the Moots Psychlo-X. Riding around leuven to Kessel Lo where I started following the Vaart towards Boortmeerbeek and ultimately Coloma. Here I turned around and rode back on the other side of the water towards Leuven again. The weather was dry and overcast but rather mild and even though I started out with the Assos Blitzfeder, I took it off in Coloma and rode back shortsleeved. Through Leuven again and then towards the Boudewijn site and past Imec to Heverlee and through Heverleebos to the Naamsesteenweg. Following that into Blanden concluded my ride . Legs felt fine.
