06/04/2019: Hello everybody, I just preponed this event by an half hour, as I have seen the schedule now and I don't want to miss the airplanes landing that morning. We should leave the Wiesbaden Hauptbahnhof with our bikes by 08:40h latest - if you want to sleep in, no problem, just call me when you are at the airfield and I will let you know where we are. Also please be advised, no bikes allowed on the airfield, so rather take a cheap bike (or expensive lock) as we will have to leave them somewhere at the gate. Looking forward to you all! Mark
