Rather than tell you what I’ve done, I thought I’d give you advance warning of something that I plan to do this weekend — and which maybe you could join too? It’s the Ronde van Leuven, a circular cycle ride you can enjoy this Sunday, August 28th (2016).
I described what to expect from local cycling events like these in my a recent post. They are a great way to get some exercise and see the local beauty spots, by following a well-signposted route. They are very family-oriented. At each of the starting points, entertainment also takes place for those who want to make a day of it and sit on a cafÃ© terrace listening to a local band or sending your kids off to a bouncy castle.
You can register at any of these six starting points:
- Bierbeek: Dorpsstraat 28
- Blanden: Bierbeekstraat 8/b
- Kortrijk-Dutsel: Dorpsplein
- Linden: Kerkdreef 2
- Lovenjoel: Kerkstraat 1/a
- Winksele: Warotstraat
Here you can sign up for a 20, 40 or 70 km ride that will take you through the greenest areas around Leuven. It costs 4 EUR which includes insurance.
The registration centres will be open from 8 a.m. As Sunday promises to be another scorchingly hot day, I’m planning to be at Winksele at 8 a.m. to complete my 70 km ride before it gets too hot.
Maybe I’ll see you there, or on the route somewhere?
