Tour de Gaume on gravel bike (☀️)

https://www.strava.com/activities/2311220829

First (miles) century ride of the year. First 80 km were very easy; the remaining 100 km were against the wind (🌬️). Discovered some gems on the way through 2 Luxembourg Cantons, 2 Belgium Arrondissements and 3 French départements. Empty roads (more 🚲 than 🚗, even on the E44). An extended version of leaving home via Mamer and coming back via Holzem 🤣. Arrived back home at dusk.
