The final Stage of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege was a lovely cycle across the district of Spandau towards the border of Berlin and Brandenburg. The extremely well-paved path along the Bullengraben was excellent for cycling through some very residential areas in Berlin. The final stretch took me in the moor landscape around the Hahneberg with some great views over the Brandenburg landscape.
The second Stage of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege was a beautiful tour through the many sides of Spandau. I left the river Havel to head into the lush Spandauer Forst before circling back to the river for some beautiful waterside views. I encountered lots of sheep (yeyy!) and enjoyed spectacular views from the Hahneberg too.
BRC Endspurt Meisterschaft 20/21: Stage 5/6 – Zwischen Prärie und Potsdam / Between Prairie and Potsdam
The penultimate BRC Endspurt Meisterschaft route passed through the prairie landscape of the Döberitzer Heide, along canals where I raced against barges and through many lovely trails. Lots of wildlife spotting too plus some bike balancing acrobatics were needed to cross over a ditch. Thankfully my clumsy nature was hibernating.
Cycling the Berliner Mauerweg (Berlin Wall Path) has been on my To Do List for ages! I finally managed to complete the whole path in a single day and it was well worth it. Starting (and ending) in central Berlin, passing along waterways and along fields – the varied terrain and sights were fantastic. But also a reminder of how West Berlin was surrounded by a huge concrete wall and that many East Berliners risked their lives to cross that border.
Here is the first of two recaps of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel looking into the whys and hows. Plus some best and worst ofs after I completed the 59 Stages!
Nadja joined me for the first part of the Stage 37 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel. This was a decidedly social Stage, as we had lunch with a friend in Kladow before parting ways. Only for me to get lost in the abandoned barracks of Krampnitz!
Stage 34 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel looped around the districts of central Spandau plus some stops in Brandenburg to spice up the Stage.
Stage 2 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel had me leaving Berlin for the first time by heading out west towards Dallgow-Döberitz.
