There are people walking and biking in every direction along the narrow cobbled lanes. There is really something to for everyone to do it Leuven. Lots of good shopping and fun restaurants to try. A regular destination for North American cyclists is the health food store that is good for getting fancier grocery store items that you won't find at the Spar. Some examples are whole oats, almond butter, and probiotics. Leuven also a great place to just sit out on a terrace to enjoy a cold Stella or coffee while watching people whiz by. I highly recommend substituting or accompanying that coffee with a waffle, it is Belgium after all!
Here are a few photos from the day:

|My favourite colourful street|
|Leuven has some amazing architecture|
|Better watch out for Team Canada|
|Of course there would be a giant bug on a skewer|
|A common sight in Belgium|
|Some bicycles are sadly forgotten|
Next race is Halle- Buizingen UCI 1.2 this Sunday. I'm recovered and ready to go!
