Today, Eddie, my navigation device let me down, just when I arrived at the starting point of the route Berlin-Leipzig (in reverse). I also lost sight of the cycling path signs, so I cycled around for 90 minutes in an almost correct direction (North instead of North East) but made approximaly 5 instead of 15 k progress. Because of the time-out of Eddie, I don’t have a track of the route today…if you want to have the regular track, you can download it from Radweg Berlin-Leipzig (please note that this is an external link, so I cannot guarantee that this link will always be working).

Btw. by now, Eddie is working again….just press 25 secs the on/off button and – everything is gonna be alright… 😉

A beautiful day

I used the first cooler day to cycle to the small town Oehringen with it’s huge palace garden.

It was a beautiful day, the apple and plum trees are (almost) ready for harvesting and I enjoyed the time being out and about again. In the end, the “not so hot” day, turned into “still pretty warm” (around 26°C) and I was quite happy to be home for a cool shower 🙂

Another sunny summer’s day

To be honest, I don’t remember much from the last stint of my “many-rivers-tour”:

I started off pretty early because the weather forecast promised another hot day.

Initially, I planned to just cycle comfortably along the Tauber until Rothenburg ob der Tauber since I wanted to visit the city for a long time. There is a bit of a complicated story involved since Rothenburg used to be “our” archenemy when our American Football teams were in the same league some years back. Therefore, I was in Rothenburg only once and only in the stadium to defeat the foe 😉

Fields in the summer sun

After two nights right in the middle of the town center, I woke wonderfully refreshed due to the absolute quietness of the village. Another early breakfast was offered and I met a couple of cyclists who were cycling the reverse direction towards Miltenberg.
They recommended to cycle on the left side of the Main, even the official cycling track would cross the Main river twice.

Miltenberg

On day four of my “many-rivers”-tour, I decided to change to river number four: the Main.
After a perfect stay in the hotel Krone in Hirschhorn, I took the train from Hirschhorn to Mosbach (Neckar). I arrived there after a half hour train ride at around 9 AM, pretty late to start a stint in the shape of an upside down U and on a sunny day 😉

Castle Zwingenberg

Breakfast at the hotel Sonne (=sun) started early, so I was on my bike already shortly after 8 AM. I cycled the way along the Neckar which I had taken the day before by foot to Bad Wimpfen.
The temperatures were comfortable and so I cycled along the river and had a wonderful view on the castles which are located on the heights on the left and on the right of the river bank.

The Main seen from Bad Wimpfen

On Wednesday, my whole body was hurting after the steep climb at the end of the previous day. That’s why I decided against cycling the Limes (=Roman border wall) route which includes a lot up and downhills. And opted for the famous Kocher-Jagst cycling route and follow the Jagst river towards the Neckar, the reverse direction from the “original Kocher-Jagst-Route”.

The first river I follow: the Kocher

After two months of holiday from the first half of my cycling adventure, I started a separate stint to also tick-off Hessia from my list of federal German states.

Note: since my  phone gave  up saving my tracks reliably and I also didn’t have internet access during most of the trip, I’m using gps tracks from tourist websites.
