This morning I ventured out with the idea to try the other side of the Nidda bike path.
From a cursory look at the map I had guesstimated that the whole round would take me 14-16km … and I was wrong.
I reached 16K when I left the river and tried to find my way back, fully aware that I am still around 6km away. Got ‘lost’ a bit in some residential neighborhood. I knew my direction, but not where I could safely cross a big Bundesstraße. Eventually I asked a helpful teenager, found an overpass and still made it under 2h … and no water at all!
