Join me for a 2-hour cycle ride around the perimeter of Leuven.
In my last post I introduced you to how to use RouteYou to create your own walking or cycling route. Just to show you how easy it is in practice, I made this simple 27 km cycle ride from my home around the outskirts of Leuven. As I mentioned, it’s just a matter of selecting the distance and direction, choosing a recreational cycle route, and you get a proposal for a route. I had to pull it to the south a little as I wanted to go through the Heverlee woods to the south of Leuven, but that was all the tinkering necessary. Here’s the map of the route, followed by some pictures.

So that was the cycling the outskirts of Leuven route I took. Feel free to join it anywhere along the route, where it’s most convenient for you.
