Tour de Tall Stage 4/4 – Transmission

I visited the three tallest structures in Berlin during the final Stage of the Tour de Tall. All three were built to transmit radio/TV signals and built when Berlin was divided, which played a role in their final states. I mainly cycled through the lush forests of Berlin before the final stop in central Berlin where loads of people were enjoying the sun.

Tour de Tall Stage 3/4 – Plants of Power

The penultimate Stage of the Tour de Tall took me to the extreme north and south of Berlin on the hunt for the 7th to the 4th tallest structures of Berlin. The structures were all related to power generation – mainly stacks from natural gas power plants but also impressive wind turbines. This was a fantastic cycle in Berlin with ideal conditions.

The second Stage of the Tour de Tall was more zig-zagging across Berlin to visit the twelfth to the eighth tallest structures. More impressive stacks from power plants and an Eiffel Tower imitation .. I mean .. inspiration, plus a bonus spaceship.

Tour de Tall Stage 1/4 – Stacks in Summer

The Tour de Tall consists of four separate Stages visiting the 17 highest structures in Berlin in ascending order. This first Stage zig-zagged through central Berlin to reach the five “shortest” structures – all stacks from different power plants. This was a lovely ride in the sun and I could even visit Nadja and the cats for lunch.

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!

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 54/59 – Snake on the Canal

Stage 54 of the Grand Tour de Öffentliche Verkehrsmittel took on 8 bus routes around the south western districts of Berlin. I was joined by Nick for the final time of this Grand Tour and he successfully completed all the bus routes but couldn’t make it home without incident! We saw a graceful grass snake swimming across the Teltow Canal and enjoyed some coffee and cake too.
