Next to a forest path near Rheinau-Freistett.




I have time, the ladies are at work, the weather is fine and the location promises a lot of shiny ribbons (and at least it's geohashing day). What else could I do than go there. It's a nice distance for an extended bullride.


I started in the morning at half past nine after doing some homework. I knew that there would be a train from Achern at 15:16 that would bring me home. Usually by far enough time.

The trip started uneventful and nice. After almost 2 hours and a bit more than 50 kilometers I must have crossed the french border without even remarking it before I saw the first signs written in french. I continued my way that lead me along the river rhine most of the time. After I've passed the lock at Iffezheim, I couldn't see the river anymore because it was behind a dike and up to 7 meters above me.Almost two hours (and 40 kilometers) later I reched the ferry at Gambsheim, where I had to leave France again. This time I took some pictures. On the German bank I had a short break for an ice-cream. Then I reached the river Rench, followed it for a while until it was just 1 more kilometer to the hash. I left the river and cycled into the forest. The hash lied almost directly next to the path but gps reception wasn't good as soon as I left the path. So I didn't get closer than 2,5 m. Anyway, I call it good enough and continued my ride to Achern. I reached the station almost one hour before my train leaves. Enough time for some cake, some beer and a little sightseeing. Well, the last part wasn't very impressing, but the other two were :-)
