[edit] Expedition

Still, there was nice weather and the 50 11 hashpoint was close to a road. Though it was 50 km each direction from Jena-Cospeda, I decided to cycle there in the evening. I planned to start at 20:00 (which I did) and be back at midnight (which I also was - 15 sec in time).

After coming home from work, I had some pasta and prepared for the night ride. To Stadtilm I was using the same roads that I took at the 2010-03-19 50 11 expedition the week before. At 21:51 I stopped close to the hashpoint and went 5 m into the brushwood. After a couple of minutes I gave up on taking a photo of being 0 m from the hashpoint and settled for the 1 m photo. I ate a power bar there and put on my "Beinlinge" (pair of clothes that covers the legs) and a wind vest, as it slowly got colder. Then I took the same way back, stopping for another power bar, a warmer vest and a photo session with some paddocks. They were to be seen nearly the whole way, slowly walking across the road or being scrunched by car tires. The entire road looked like a battle field, but I forbeared from taking photos of the slaughter. The stops somehow endangered my time table, so that I had to hurry for the last 15 km, but made it to my home at exactly 23:59:45 after 101.4 km of cycling. My first >100 km ride this year!
