Plans[edit]

A class reunion was scheduled for 2016-09-10 and so I wanted to visit my mother. As I had some days off, I planned to go hashing on the following days, and took my bike with me. As I had to ride to Neuwied, I planned to go as near to the hash as possible by train and continue my way to my mother via the hash by bike.

Expedition[edit]

The closest station to the hash was at Niederbrechen (what could be read as breakdown). It wasn't to easy to reach. I started at Speyer station at 10:02 but couldn't start riding before half past one. Half an hour later I was already near the hash. I had to leave the road for some 100 meters, especially since the hash lies much higher than the road. Then I reached a grassland with many apple trees. I parked my bike, walked a little and that was it. It was a great view from the hp, and I admit that I took an apple for me. Then I continued my way for the remaining 70 kilometers.

I don't want to bore you with the description of the trip. Just so much: I was surprised, how much traffic was on the Westerwald (what this low mountain range is called). And just when I got really thirsty I found a very small crafted brewery in the little village Grenzau and got an excellent IPA. The next mountain was much easier to climb :-) But then my tablet ran out of power and as I hadn't any other maps with me, I had no idea where I should go. For heavens sake I was already close to Sayn, from where I knew the way to my mothers house very good. I just had to go down to the valley. I've chosen the right way and after a short while I found myself on a narrow and steep path, even with stairs in it. But although I had to push my bike (or hold it back), I soon reached the ground of the valley and really was in Sayn. Just 20 minutes later I reached my mothers home at 7 pm.

Tracklog[edit]

the first 62 kilometers, before I run out of power. And I did ride 157 kilometers by train (and then only 7 kilometers to the hash, what qualifies for a public transport achievement).
