A hot summer’s day was a great opportunity for the eighth Stage of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege. This route led me through nature reserves and along small lakes in the east of Berlin. All the greenery was a nice touch to these primarily residential districts. A great ride and even my blood glucose was relatively well-behaved!
Stage 7 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege started at the lovely Märchenbrunnen (Fairy Tale Fountain) and ended at the border between Berlin and Hönow. On the way, I encountered a huge bull fountain, some fantastic street art, lakes and high-rise blocks. A great mixture of all that Berlin has to offer!
The penultimate Stage of the Tour de Tall took me to the extreme north and south of Berlin on the hunt for the 7th to the 4th tallest structures of Berlin. The structures were all related to power generation – mainly stacks from natural gas power plants but also impressive wind turbines. This was a fantastic cycle in Berlin with ideal conditions.
Stage 52 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel was a bit of a sweat-fest. But I saw cats and sheep, a waterfall and some of the best buildings Berlin has to offer!
Stage 50 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel was a very eventful Stage! Nick had to abandon another Stage due to a flat tyre and I forgot to inject bolus insulin leading to very high blood glucose.
Stage 48 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel would be the final visit to Berlin’s working Airports and visit the southernmost part of Berlin. Plus the importance of vowels in the German language.
Stage 47 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel was a major win in blood glucose management – within range the whole Stage! Plus sightings of Highland Cattle, great gravel paths in Falkenberg and the Mörderberg (Murder Mountain!).
Stage 44 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel focused on the tram routes that run through the eastern part of Berlin. After a non-start in the previous Stage, this time my special guest was plagued by chain drops!
Stage 43 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel was a tale of two coffees plus a pre-Stage abandonment from my special guest. I also got to take in loads of new murals around Berlin too!
Stage 40 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel was a mixture of busy roads and idyllic forest. Plus dealing with a loose cleat screw!
