Ninja Cycles Part 4 – Cherry Blossom Hunt

  • by

For the 10 year anniversary of when Nadja and I met, we hunted out some of the cherry blossoms around Berlin. We cycled through some lovely parks, and made it to the Kirschblütenallee (Cherry Blossom Avenue) on the site of the former Berlin Wall to enjoy this amazing area. Spring may finally be here!

Berliner Mühlenrundfahrt / Tour of Berlin’s Mills

  • by

A beautiful autumn day was ideal for visiting all 8 of Berlin’s mills. This was a lovely loop in the city focussing on buildings not really associated with big cities! The back stories, as well as the current uses, of these mills is also very interesting – featuring a “Murder Mill” going up in flames, World War II and people getting caught in the vanes.

Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel Stage 59/59 – Grand Finale

The final Stage of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel arrived! A beautiful sunny day meant I could really enjoy this lovely ride between Berlin and Potsdam. Once finishing the final route – the U3 – I celebrated with Nadja at the Brandenburg Gate. Very proud to have completed all the public transport routes.

Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel Stage 57/59 – Defensive Eating

Stage 57 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel was a lesson in insulin sensitivity. I had to constantly eat to keep my blood glucose in a safe range! Thankfully wearing a CGM helped prevent any dangerous lows. Aside from ever present blood glucose issues, I explored some lovely urban and green areas within Berlin while ticking off another five bus and one tram route.

Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel Stage 51/59 – Düppel

Stage 51 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel would again take me out of Berlin where I visited the neighbouring towns of Potsdam and Teltow. I took the opportunity to explore the Düppel forest between Potsdam and Berlin and discovered some great graffiti on ruins of train tracks.

Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel Stage 42/59 – Ewe Ate

  • by

The U8 was the backbone of Stage 42 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel. This was very much a modern history tour by crossing along the path of the Berlin Wall and cycling by many of the “ghost stations” during the Cold War.
