A pulled muscle in my lower back made me take it easy for a couple of days but today I wanted to see if I could ride again. So I set out , after it had rained a bit in the AM, for an easy recovery ride. Ride which took me through Heverlee and to the Parkpoort in Leuven. I then followed the rind around Leuven , pausing briefly to take a picture of the monument Rik Poot erected in front of the KBC Insurance buildings. It is called 'The Abduction of Europa' and pictures Europa being taken away by Zeus, in the form of a majestic bull.
I then continued along the ring around Leuven until I reached the Naamsepoort. Here I disappeared into the smaller alleys and my road then took me towards Heverlee and Oud-Heverlee. Along the Zoete Waters and further towards Sint Joris Weert and Nethen. From there it was only a small stretch towards Hamme Mille and Meerdael again. I felt Ok throughout the ride and now have to wait how the muscles will react to the strain of the ride.
Ride Stats : 37.5K and 250/290 heightmeters (Polar/Garmin) in 1h40
