Today's location is in a field between some wind power plants and the Autobahn A7 near Biebelried, not far from Würzburg.

Country: Germany; state: Bayern (Bavaria, EU:DE:BY); administrative region: Unterfranken; district: Kitzingen. Elevation: about 295 metres.

Weather (12:00): Cloudy, about 2°C



The Google Maps information for this area is very outdated: The road map is sketchy at best and the satellite image doesn't even show the new course of federal highway B8. The tracks available in reality are much more convenient than the route planner's proposal and I reached the hashpoint's vicinity easily (except for one intersection where I took the wrong turn at first because I didn't find the knocked over signpost in the ditch). But since map information and reality did not match, it was not so easy to find the exact spot. I walked around for a while in the correct field, which for a change was neither muddy nor cropped. In retrospect (and with another map), I think I might have been a little too far north.

The way back was easy. I could have made a stop at the bike store in Rottendorf and bought much-needed spare parts, but that wasn't possible because of the weekend. I cycled 15.7 + 15 = 30.7 km
