    #FS2019pastryride #14. Gas station pastry at a Hessol in Massenheim. Very tasty Kirchetasse to go with my Kaffee.

    #FS2019pastryride #15. Rode back out to Bad Homburg checking a route to the Taunus Terme. We ate in their cafe, I had a slice of a plum tart to go with my coffee. Sorry, no indoor photos are allowed.

    #FS2019pastryride #16. I hadn't been to the Commissary for a few American specialty items since last September. The first 25 miles was easier than the return 27 with 30 lbs of groceries. Lunch was Popeyes at the Exchange and I stopped at the Backhaus Heislitz in Kriftel on the return trip (mile 38) and refueled with an Apfeltasse and Kaffee.

    In case anyone needs some pastry motivation in the DMV, here's an old article from Eater. There's quite a few not listed including Heidelberg Pastry in Arlington and Un Je Ne Sais Quoi in Dupont.

    #FS2019pastryride #17. Following in the footsteps of the King ride today. I looped through both Frieberg and Bad Nauheim where he was stationed and lived 1958 to 1960. My first stop in Rosbach had no pastry (or anything else to eat), so I had to hold out until I got to Ranstadt where I stopped at Rank's Stadtbäckerei & Café where I had some sort of Danish with a mixed filling (Apfel und Quark).

    Winter Bike to Work Day for #FS2019pastryride #18. Hey, it counts if you're retired and ride to have lunch at your wife's office, right? After lunch I made a loop through Westend, Bockenheim, Hausen, Oberursel, Bad Homburg, and Kalbach. In Westend I stopped at Les Deux Messieurs for coffee and Apfelkuchen. A very international place, I heard Arabic, Spanish, French, German, English, and a Slavic language I couldn't identify.

    #FS2019pastryride #19. I headed south for a change today for a loop to Rödermark and Messel. My target was the Weller Bäckerei & Konditorei in Messel but I did a loop through the town without seeing it. Then on my way out I realized it was attached to the back end of the Netto grocery. Just outside of Messel is a UNESCO World Heritage site for fossils, one of these days when I am riding by I rally should stop in.

    #FS2019pastryride #19. It's been raining all day so I just got in a short ride. As wet as it was I left the camera at home, so no pictures of my coffee and Kirschstruessel at the Café Laumer in Westend.

    #FS2019pastryride #20. I had really intended to get out for a longer ride than this, but we had a housing inspection this morning so I had to get up too early (yeah, I know, it $uck$ to be retired ) and then I dozed off again. I stopped at the Aveirense Bäckerei, Café, & Portugese groceries in Heddernheim hoping for a Pastel de Nata to go with my coffee. No luck, but still had a tasty Portuguese pastry (some sort of sweet cheese filling).

    #FS2019pastryride #22. I rode out to Bad Homburg and spent a couple hours soaking in the warm Taunus Therme. At the end of the ride I stopped at Brot & Freunde on Marbachweg in Dornbusch for my coffee and a Cheddar & Jalapeño Schnecke.
