In a field, just outside Stadecken-Elsheim




Looking at the coordinates, I was excited to see that it was very close to my home, being only about 7km from the edge of Mainz. It's a pretty straight-forward route, and I had even already been to the destination village Stadecken-Elsheim, so I roughly knew where to go.

My route began at the entrance of the Ober-Olmer Forst, which provided nice shading against the bright sunshine my expedition was blessed with. The weather was very pleasant overall, neither too hot to cycle up a hill nor to cool to pass through a forest, complemented by a clear blue sky.

Having left the forest and the following village Essenheim behind, my previous knowledge paid off due to the path proposed by OSM being blocked because of roadwork. I was forced to leave the paved way in favor of the bordering vineyards. Cycling a grassy agricultural road uphill proved more exhausting than I had expected, so I took a break at the apex, where I also took a photo of the nice view atop the hill.

From there on it was a fun downhill ride to reach Stadecken-Elsheim, where I used the public roads for the last bit to the destination, just outside the village in a field, about 20m away from the pathway.
