This morning’s 30 km cycle ride was a nice loop through the countryside to the west of Heerlen.

It was cold, (only 4c) when I left home just after 08:00 but the sun was out and I warmed up quickly.

After about 7 km I paused for a while at the gardens of Kasteel Ter Worm where the early sunshine helped make some nice photos.

Today’s featured image is of the vineyard just south of Voerendaal, belonging to the local winemaker, Overst.

Helpfully there is a sign informing which local supermarkets stock their wine, so I’m optimistic we will be sampling some before too long.
