Biking in March 2015

veloviewer_wheel_march_2015

In March 2015 I continued to bike on new roads, though three rides were Tempelhof only.

I participated in two bigger group rides:

  • 22 March 2015: To Neuhardenberg in a group of seven cyclists (report here)
  • 28 March 2015: To Blankensee in a group of eleven (!) cyclists

I also biked twice with Simon in the north. The rest of the rides were solo, I especially liked the “extended laktatrunde” as I call it, which continues east from Königs Wusterhausen instead of just cutting up north.

I forget the most beautiful stretches of each route easily, but there were plenty of them in the first group ride, and I and Simon happened to find one west of Hennigsdorf as well.

Here are some photos from the biggest group ride:

After heading lead the group for a while, I retracted to the back, drank some water and snapped this photo of nine of the guys (I'm the tenth and there's also one behind me).

Group ride of 11 cyclists to Blankensee.

And this is what it looks like when I’m in the picture too (the only one in shorts on this picture).

At this bakery we ran (rode) into another group of cyclists. So we were about 20 cyclists eating cake and drinking coffee there, and enjoying a few rays of sunshine.

After the coffee break I found out I had a flat tire. Someone offered his magic glue spray and fixed it in a couple of minutes. Six of the riders decided to go on a longer ride, so they left while we "repaired" my puncture. This is the rest of the group (four people + me) who went straight back to Berlin, making it a 120 km instead of 160 km ride.

This is now how my Veloviewer heatmap for 2015 looks like:
