Today's location is in an alfalfa field near Marktsteft, not far from Kitzingen.
Country: Germany; state: Bayern (Bavaria, EU:DE:BY); administrative region: Unterfranken; district: Kitzingen
Weather: sunny with clouds
The sun was shining and I started out along the Main. I followed it on the familiar cycle path to Ochsenfurt, then continued through Frickenhausen to Segnitz, where I crossed the river. The rest of the journey was next to fields and vineyards to Marktsteft and soon I was near the hashpoint. It was in an alfalfa field, but there were tire tracks going straight through it, so reaching the spot was no problem. Pictures pictures pictures, return.
Not much later exhaustion, which surprisingly had been no problem until then, made itself felt, and with force. On my way to the hashpoint I had taken many stops for pictures, now I had to stop regularly to rest my legs. After another 25 painful kilometres I was back home.
Total distance cycled: 64.4 km. Although I had to climb only 40 metres of slopes during this expedition (not counting the almost-level cycle path along the river), somewhere near the hashpoint came the point when my climbing total during bike geohashing expeditions reached 8848 metres, as high as the Mount Everest.
