Quench the thirst

In the hilly area this blog’s author lives, it is quite easy to work up a thirst (and a sweat) when biking:

There are either winds to work against; or long and steep ascends to climb up.

Although the Alps and the Pyrenees are hundreds of kilometers away, there is quite a number of serpentines to train your climbing (and mental) stamina in Germany’s Taunus region.

Or both, hills and winds,  to cope with:

Beating the headwinds around Großer Feldberg is an uphill battle, literally.

Beating the headwinds around Kleiner Feldberg is an uphill battle, literally.

But help is on the way (at least when „the way“ is somewhere in the vicinity of Laubus-Eschbach, a little town in the middle of Taunus nowhere, but home to the biggest cider press around).

And if you stop there for a bio break, you even have the chance of a self-guided tour through the bottling plant (since the elevated iron walk way to the visitor bathrooms is a sky walk above it).

With 20,000 bottles capped per hour, there is no need to worry whether every rider's thirst can be quenched.

So, bring an extra bidon when you ride in that area. You’ll always be able to fill it with apple juice as fresh as it can be. And if you really luck out, you may be able to sip a bit of really special stuff such as pear cider.
