Lunch ride to Diekirch

Today I went to the Meetup event called Lazy Sunday Bike Ride.

The meeting point was in Mersch at 10:15. I left home on time, but went slowly and did a detour via the city centre,  and at 9:44 I saw the sign displaying 15 remaining kilometres, I had to boost and arrived there exactly at 10:15 😉 Of course, I could also have contacted the organiser as I knew the tour details, but that would have been no fun.

The group was great, it was great riding with 12 other people while talking a bit and listening to others – I have two ears and one mouth. One person got lost so I went back to fetch her and we finally found the group back after an hour, and we cycled to Diekirch and stopped for lunch in a Portuguese restaurant named Jardin du Portugal where the food was good so I recommend it.

In total, I cycled another 109 km today, it was called a “Lazy” 😉

I’ve done 412 km of outdoor activities this week, and I still need another 743 km this month to reach my goal, but since I’m going to be on duty next week I won’t be able to cycle as much as last week.

To finish the day, I’ve cleaned the BBQ; it’s like a new one 🙂

Here’s a view of the meetup point, shot from the direction of Scott’s Pub:


To get there, the easiest is to walk and take the elevator from Plateau du Saint Esprit down to Grund.
