When the weather is good, the best way to visit a region is by bike.
Of course it is a bit of a disadvantage that on this race bike, I am wearing special shoes with a click-system. And because of this click-system it is not so easy to walk.
But whenever you see something interesting along the road, it is very easy to stop and you have no parking problems.
Because of the weather I decided to do the 110 km roundtrip.
This 110 km trip passed via the Abbeys of Tongerlo and Averbode.
- Start in Heppen (near Leopoldsburg)
- Oostham (3 km)
- Winkelomheide (28 km)
- Abbey of Tongerlo (40 km)
- Zammel (44 km)
- Abbey of Averbode (52 km)
- Testelt (57 km)
- Zichem (59 km)
- Diest (80 km)
- Engsbergen (87 km)
- Heppen (Finish: 110 km)
The friend which had advised me to do this, where right, this a very beautiful trip along quiet roads, and in a green environment.
Fondest memory: A region for cycling, till Averbode it was pretty flat, but further on we had to do some light climbing.
