      In bright sunshine I took the train from Weinheim to Bad Schönborn - Kronau today. The trains were on time👏👍👏
      I had previously looked at the route to the starting point on the map, but I drove an unwanted loop in Kronau. Watery eyes in the cold, dark glasses - I have to stop to see something on the navigation system
      Before red, the first deviation from the given course. On my route I found a secret GAGAist 🌀 (photo) and a flower bike 💐🚲 (photo).
      From Walldorf to Heidelberg I followed the given course obediently. The section along Speyerer Straße wasn't quite as bad as feared. The alternatives run further east, however, which would dent the beautiful spiral.
      Exactly because of the dent, I didn't drive the old mountain road slightly along the Odenwald from Dossenheim, but stayed east and on the plain. There are 3 alternatives: the most beautiful is the eastern one, slightly along the Odenwald. The comfortable one is through the fields between the autobahn and the B3. The least attractive is the car traffic on the B3.
      In Weinheim, as a local, I took the liberty of skipping the slope to the Hermannshof / Schloßpark and went straight to the Peterskirche. There is the connection to my 1st part tour, which I drove in the opposite direction: komoot.de/tour/556763121?ref=wtd
      At the entrance to the quarry I had to force myself to stay on the bike / sidewalk. There the 6-Mühlen-Trail branches off, which leads to Birkenau off the B38 through the forest. I ride the touring bike too.
      In Mörlenbach the marked cycle path goes to Rimbach via Jahnstraße and a piece of the B38 (Weinheimer Straße) to Bahnstraße. From Jahnstraße there is a steep uphill section and you end up at a busy intersection, where even I lost track - that explains the unnecessary squiggle!

      Because there was no train or replacement rail service in Rülzheim, I drove back to the train station in Germersheim in the dark.

      Exploration tour for "spend 1000 bikes by CdG, 1 - day 30 - From Kronau to Fürth".
      Deviating from the specification, I chose the route via Juhöhe and Guldenklinger Höhe. From Scheuerberg a continuation via Lindenfels to the Main (Dettingen - day 31) would be conceivable.

      The specification goes in the opposite direction, but going down with the water of the Weschnitz makes things a little easier. In the direction of Kronau it goes up the Rhine, but you hardly notice that at all.

      The Kottenberg was in fog today, so there are no pictures. There are many options for arrival and departure.
      If you keep to the right at the last junction and then turn sharply right again, you will return to the starting point via the folding rule.
