The third Stage of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege led me from the government quarter in central Berlin all the way to the wheat fields in the northwestern district of Heiligensee. I followed canals, stopped at lakes, cycled through dense forests and could even enjoy some of the best street art that Berlin has to offer.
Spring made a welcome return just in time for the final BRC Endspurt Meisterschaft route. A lovely sunny day cycling through nature reserves, forests and along waterways. Bonus visit to the Schloss Dammsmühle with an interesting CV and yet another foiled sabotage attempt!
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.
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 41 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel completed the S25 route between the towns of Teltow and Hennigsdorf. Along the way, I passed through forests, checked out new graffiti and passed two border towers.
My blood glucose was not very well-behaved during Stage 27 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel. Despite this it was a great tour enjoying some of the many lakes and water ways in and around Berlin. Plus a visit to the car-loving town of Falkensee!
