It was last Sunday and I had fun. More exactly, I woke up at 4:55 AM, took the Regionalbahn from Ostbahnhof at 5:59, and arrived in Brandenburg at 7 AM sharp. Yes, that was a bit early. But I wanted to get out on the roads early on a Sunday morning, so I could bike on the roads when they are the most empty.
Because I had checked the winds, and they would blow with a steady 3-4 meters per second from southwest. So I decided to bike from southwest to the northeast.
Why these bike tours at all?
Because I follow this advice!
- Distance: 116 km (72 miles)
- Average speed: 27,3 kph (16,9 mph)
- Max speed: 50,2 kph (31,2 mph)
- Biking time: 4 hours, 16 minutes
- (Total time: 7:00 – 12:40 = 5 hours, 40 minutes)
Here are some photos from the tour. I shot some of them while biking:
A boat in Brandenburg at about 7:10 AM.
Not much going on in Nauen at 8.15 AM.
One reason why I avoid bike paths; sooner or later they always force you to a stop.
Road 273 was dug up in Oranienburg, but I could pass with my bike. On the sign you can see that I was pretty close to the concentration camp Sachsenhausen.
The kinky stuff that people in the country fill their miserable lives with.
