Stage 5 of the Grand Tour de Grüne Hauptwege is the North-South complement to the West-East route of Stage 1. I cycled from Buch along the lovely Pankeweg (Panke Route) right into the heart of Berlin. The way south continued through many green stretches before I reached the fields which the Berlin Wall used bisect. Here, I found a mobile phone and managed to reunite it with its owner!
This recap of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel looks at the history of the public transport network in Berlin. And takes a deep dive into the highs and lows (pun intended) of blood glucose management during the 59 stages.
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!
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 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!
I tackled one of the longer S-Bahn routes between Blankenfelde and Bernau during Stage 36 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel. My blood glucose was striving to make me not enjoy the ride but it failed as it was a lovely Stage in some beautiful weather.
Stage 12 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel travelled up to Buch and into Brandenburg to visit Ahrensfelde, Eiche and Mehrow.
