In a corn field, between Benfeld and Kertzfeld.



The plan was to take my bike, ride from Sélestat to Benfeld along the railway and hope I wouldn't end up in a corn field.


I left home before noon and rode to Sélestat. From there I followed the railway up to Benfeld. As I expected, the location was in a corn field but that wasn't enough to stop me. I left my bike and hiked about 20 meters between the stalks (careful not to damage anything) before reaching the coordinate.

As I had ridden mainly on gravel paths on the way out, my hands were starting to ache a little and I decided to take a more comfortable route on my way back. I stopped in Epfig to buy some fruits, followed the EuroVelo 5 between Dambach-la-Ville and Bergheim, went home and made some lemonade.

The total distance was about 80 km.
