Near Thierenbach, in Soultz-Haut-Rhin.



The coordinates are 48 km from home by bicycle if I take a direct route through the plain. However I don’t intend to take a direct route through the plain.


I left home with my bicycle before noon and headed towards Ribeauvillé. I took the same route as for my previous expedition until Kientzheim. There I followed the EuroVelo 5 until Turckheim and climbed to the Hohlandsbourg castle before descending to Gueberschwihr.

After cycling 50 km and climbing about 1000 m through the vineyards and forests, I was starting to feel a little bit peckish. I stopped in Rouffach to eat some tapas and a big ice cream, and drink a beer, a lemonade, an apfelschorle and a coffee. I was now ready to get back on my bicycle and attempt to complete the expedition.

I stayed (most of the time) on the EuroVelo 5 until Soultz-Haut-Rhin and entered the forest. After a couple of kilometers, as the road was crossing a dried-up stream, I left my bicycle behind a tree and went up the stream for about 150 meters before reaching the coordinates.

On my way back to my bicycle, I found some garbage, which I threw in a trash bin in Bollwiller. Conveniently, not far from the trash bin was a train station. I took a train to Colmar and cycled the remaining 20 km to home.

This is my longest Bicycle geohash (so far) with 73 km to reach the coordinates and 102 km cycled in total.
