Complete Berlin Wall circumnavigation while the weather is still nice!
-Doable with a road bike, but you need reasonably wide tires (at least 25 mm) and passable bike handling skills. Ideal with a city bike or CX/gravel bike. A MTB will be a bit of a hard slog for the long road sections.
-Contrary to the route direction in Strava map, we'll be doing this COUNTERCLOCKWISE. If you want to upload the route to your Garmin, please download from here: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/23727589 (select Export tab at the right)
-We'll be stopping along the way, but still bring adequate water and food, as this will be a 6 hr outing. We'll likely stop at the Moorlake restaurant in Glieneke right after the ferry.
-In order to make the ferry at approximately the halfway point, we need to leave at 8 am precisely. Please get there closer to 7:45 am so we can roll out on time. Meeting point is at the corner of Ackerstrasse/BernauerStr (near the
Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer).
-Pace will not be that high, approx. 30 km/h on the smooth road sections. But you should be fit enough for 5+ hours in the saddle. No one gets left behind!
