In a little forest next to the golf resort Grafenhof.





Number three in this years bicycle hash tour (to number two and four).

Todays hashpoint should bring me in the extreme north eastern corner of the 48_8-graticule again (and this time I couldn't sleep so close to the hash and had to leave the graticule again for a hotel).

I left in the morning with cloudy and cold but dry weather. First I had almost to return to yesterdays hashpoint again, where I could cross the Autobahn. Now I followed the valley of Weinsberg for a while until it abruptly ended in Löwenstein. Here I had to climb 250 m up, but it was still early in the morning and so I managed this although my legs were still sour from the day before yesterday. From here the landscape changed totally. The dulcet valley with its vineyards changed to a sparse plateau.But after a while with moderate ups and downs I reached the rivulet Rot and therefor the next valley. In the middle of the forest I found the remaining of a former roman castle and learned that the limes (UNESCO World Heritage) courses here through the valley of the Rot. I followed the Rot and the Kocher for the next 30 kilometers before I had to climb the plateau again.

20 kilometers later I came near the hash. It was situated next to a small road so I didn't expect any difficulties, but it hided in a dense copse and gps reception was bad, so I entered the thicket several times but never got a satisfying result. Nevertheless there was no severe obstacle around and so I'm sure, I reached the exact points once at least.

Funny enough there was a hotel next to the hashpoint again for the third time, but this time it was kind of a holiday and golf resort and these are usually not prepared for guests that stay only one night. So I continued the ride to the next little town, called Ellwangen an der Jagst. It has an old church, a chateau and a pilgrimage church but I was to tired to see much of the town.
