Stage 16 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege took me through some lovely northern districts of Berlin. This route was inspired by the wanderings of the Humboldt brothers (Alexander and Wilhelm). I was lucky enough to cycle this route when the first blossoms were at their peak. I also managed to enjoy some sheep, cows, boar and deer along the way too.
Stage 14 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege followed the river Wuhle from the north east of Berlin towards the river Spree in Köpenick. This is the final Stage of this Grand Tour in 2021 and it was fantastic! Full of amazing views from “mountains” and autumnal colours everywhere. This long planned ride was really worth the wait.
A sunny but chilly autumn day was a great chance to cycle through the Barnim Villages for Stage 13 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege. I cycled from the Tegeler See towards the east of Berlin through some amazing landscapes – many of which are nature reserves too. Despite some blood glucose troubles at the end, this was an amazing ride and I really loved the autumn colours just popping everywhere.
Stage 55 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel toured the northeast districts of Berlin and beyond. On the way back to central Berlin, a stranger stopped me for advice of buying a bicycle – the perks of wearing all the cycling gear.
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 40 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel was a mixture of busy roads and idyllic forest. Plus dealing with a loose cleat screw!
Stage 12 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel travelled up to Buch and into Brandenburg to visit Ahrensfelde, Eiche and Mehrow.
