After work I had some things to do in downtown Würzburg, then at 6 pm I directly continued towards the hashpoint. Until Rottendorf I used my usual cycling route and with the new bike it felt easier than before. From Rottendorf I took the track along the B8 federal route. Not much later I was about 500 m from the hashpoint. The last track was just a simple track. It looked better than it was and after a few metres my tires were full of mud, almost blocking the wheels. With more difficulties than planned I stopped at the hashfield. There were small sugar beet plants on it, so I could walk between the crops towards the hashpoint. My shoes got less muddy than my bike did before.
I found the hashpoint easily shortly before 7 pm and took a picture, but then I saw somebody walk across the field! The man was still a good distance away and was holding something long in his hand. At first I thought it might be a metal detector, but in combination with something on his back I think it was the farmer spraying poison. He certainly didn't look like somebody geohashing, so I walked back to my bike without haste and drove to the other end of the dirt track. There I had problems getting even the majority of the mud off my bike, but after a while I could at least cycle without any problems. The ride home went fine. In Würzburg I passed a do-it-yourself car-wash and stopped to clean my bike with the pressure washer. Around 8 pm I was back home.
In total, I cycled 26.4 km.
