I cycled through Würzburg and along the country roads I had taken on my very first German expedition. Cycling went fine. On my way, I stopped a few times to save caterpillars from probable death on the road, and once to mourn a roadkilled cat. A few minutes before 4 pm I reached the edge of the hashforest, which is the border between the German states Bayern and Baden-Württemberg. I was able to cycle on the forest tracks with a bit of effort and I stopped near the hashpoint at 15:58. The last ~20 metres were easy and I reached the hashpoint one minute before meetup time, just in time for a picture. Nobody else was there and I spent some time taking pictures of the surroundings.
When I started to walk back to my bike at quarter past 4 a motorcycle drove past on the forest track and the pillion rider waved to me, but apparently they weren't geohashers. The way back home was more difficult and I had to stop a few times to rest my untrained legs.
I cycled 47.8 km.
