Today was an out and back loop ride. Through some beautiful countryside and some nasty climbs. So far, the ride has been pretty flat but today Jan sent us south to catch a few of the Netherlands climbs and a bit of Belgium as well.
The climbs are not really long, but at 14% grade each climb becomes pretty significant.
The heat has returned with it reaching into the mid 90's by the end of the ride. More warm days are ahead.
