There was a cold unpleasant wind blowing from the North this morning. I waited until 10AM but the sun was nowhere to be seen. So I took the Psychlo-X out for a ride. I has it back on road tyres - the trusted Schwalbe Marathon S in 28mm size - so it rolled smoothly. Riding along the Expressweg to reach the Tiensesteenweg and taking that toward - you guessed it -Tienen. Just before Tienen I followed the ring around this city until I could take a right towards Hoegaarden. In for a climb here and I settled down and took my time for it. Meldert and Beauvechain were next and I passed the 1st Wing entrance on my way to the N240. Another right and right again towards Hamme Mille. Here the wind was playing its last card when the semicircle around the Beauvechain airstrip took me straight into it. Once I reached Hamme Mille I was protected by the Meerdael Forest when I followed the Naamsesteenweg back towards Blanden. I had a good ride. The legs felt a bit heavy in the start and I was troubled by the wind and the cold temperatures. But the longest ride of 2016 up till now was a fact
Ride Stats : 49K and 385 heightmeters (Garmin) in 01h56mins
Was home rather late from work today but since this was my cycling day I got on the Tacx Satori for an hour of fast recovery cycling. Legs felt great and I enjoyed the ride. Reading a book of Toni Coppers on the Kindle and enjoying some music on Spotify.
