day 5 Sint-Truidin to Leuven 78 kilometers

Day 5 of our around Flanders cycling adventure, a modest and warmer day of riding finishing at the busy and beautiful college town of Leuven. The days ride very much mimics the previous days ride. It goes something like this; village, corn field, village, apple orchard, village, pear orchard, and so on. Belgium is the 2nd most populated country in the European Union so one does not need to ride that far to come upon a village. We stopped at the Stella brewing company to arrange for a brewery tour only to find out that all the tours were sold out. Rest day in Leuven tomorrow, plenty to see and do.
 apple orchards galore
 new plantings
 what is Herbie doing in Belgium ?
 Other touring cyclists
 Stella and a local beer
 Starters
Mark!  only pick the good ones.
