The weather had a dry intermezzo between 2 rain zones so I rode out with the Moots Psychlo-X for a mixed ride. Taking me over Egenhoven and Leuven to Bertem, Leefdaal and back to Egenhoven. I did enjoy the nice temperatures and the sun which was shyly trying to pierce the evaporating clouds. Clouds that were hurried on by a notice-able easterly breeze.

I started the new year with a 10.5K walk in the AM. The weather was fine with sun and temperatures around 8 degrees C. In the afternoon I decided to take the Moots Psychlo-X out for a spin into Meerdael forest. The trails were mois but not overly so and I tried to stay on the bigger roads. I made a big loop in the forest and ended up in Nethen. Taking the tarmac towards Sint Joris Weert I could recuperate from the offroad effort. In Weert I rode into the forest again for a stretch past the Kluis and crossing the Weertse Dreef , riding towards the Steenberg and then looping back to the Langendaal and then crossing the Prosperdreef and riding into Blanden to finish the ride.

This was my last ride of 2015.I did a solid 35 minutes of Tacx Satori cycling .2015 has been a year of mixed emotions, but for cycling it was a good year. I did not do so many K's as I usually do, due to a hot summer and a couple of weeks' off due to minor health problems. But I am happy with this year since it marked my return to the road and to longer rides.
Another beautiful sunny and mild day. When I got home from work I settled on a Tacx Satori ride. Reading the latest 'Weirdbook' on my Kindle I rode 30 minutes on a good pace. Legs felt a little tired from yesterdays' 2 hours outside ride and from the long walk I did during my mid day break but I could maintain a good pace and speed.
