[edit] Plans

Take the train to Heidesheim, go to the hash point with my trusty Brompton folding bike and then bike back to Mainz along the river rhine.

[edit] Expedition

I set off at Eberstadt with the tram and went to Darmstadt Hbf. From there with the train to Mainz and then onwards to Heidesheim. I biked to the hash point, which was easy to find as it was right next to the road. I added a marker from activegeohasher.com to the guard railing and flew my kite within sight of the hash point (I wouldn't have wanted to fly it directly at the hash point, as there was a not-terribly-unbusy road right next to it). I considered going for the picnic achievement as I came prepared, but did I mention the hash point was right next to a road and not really all that nice? So I decided to take the Brompton and bike to the rhine and do the picnic there. I had it next to the village of Heidenfahrt with a nice view of the rhine. Afterwards, I biked back to Mainz, had some ice-cream on the way (it was quite a nice and sunny day) and went back with the train to Eberstadt and by bike to my place.
