Plans[edit]

Go to the hash by bike, take the train back from Mainz.

Expedition[edit]

I once again took my bike out for a tour to the geohash. Starting at home in Darmstadt I drove via Groß-Gerau, Trebur and Mainz-Ginsheim, -Gustavsburg to the hash location in Mainz-Kostheim. Mainz-Kostheim, despite of what the name suggests, actually now belongs to the city of Wiesbaden. For further information on why this is so, check https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mainz-Kostheim. Shortly after noon I reached the hashpoint on a playground, where I had a break, left a chalk mark and took some photos.

As the weather was fair and I still had plenty of time, I decided not to drive home immediately but to explore the area bit. I quickly came down to the bank of the Rhine with a great view towards the city of Mainz. Following the Rhine river, I approached the confluence of the Main and the Rhine, at the "Mainspitze". First, I was on the opposite side of the Main but going to the actual "Mainspitze" was not too far, so I also went there and took more photos.

For the way back I drove to Bischofsheim and took the train back to Darmstadt. The total biking distance was about 53km.
