Expedition

With 112 km, this is my longest Bicycle geohash so far.

I started the journey by cycling to Marckolsheim and crossing the border. Then I took the direct route to Freiburg via the Kaiserstuhl hills, passed through Umkirch (which I had previously visited) and reached Ebringen in about 2 hours and a half.

But I hadn't arrived at my destination yet. There still remained a 200 meters climb on the Schönberg mountain, which took me 30 long minutes and was quite exhausting as I hadn't eaten anything since I had left home. After leaving the road and pushing my bicycle on a rocky path, I finally reached a large meadow and the coordinates.

I headed back to Ebringen, stopped in the nearby town of Schallstadt to eat a big ice cream and have a drink, then cycled to Breisach, crossed the Rhine and returned home using the cycle track along the Rhone–Rhine Canal.
