The 84 km cycle ride today was another loop to the north of Heerlen, mostly through the open German countryside.

There was little sun when I left home just after 07:30 but it was warm, warmer than I expected and I soon regretted not wearing my shorts today.

At around the 30 km mark I cycled alongside Lago Laprello, near the German town of Heinsberg.

I have passed this way a few times previously and overcast skies today meant very few pictures were taken here.

I continued on my way, making good time on mostly familiar roads and cycle tracks and arrived home before 13:00.

Today’s featured image is on the edge of Lago Laprello.

This was my first ride since my epic ride last weekend to Wuppertal and it was great to be out on two wheels again.
