(A click on the route enlarges the picture!)

I started my tour by heading off to the Brandenburger Tor, as this is the main starting point for many bike routes leading out of Berlin.

A drive to the north-west brought me past Tegel airport and then went along likes on extra bike routes, so there was no interference from motorized traffic.

By lunch I had already reached Oranienburg, over 50km from my starting point and had a nice relaxing food break at the side of a canal.

Beautiful roads along the many canals.

Legs feeling strong I continued on to Zehdenick where the route follows through the grounds of a brick manufacture, which has been revamped into an event location. The last 10km to Tornow were quite challenging, as my legs were clearly feeling the strain of the day, but I tried to take it easy and arrived at my Campsite “Am großen Wentowsee” in the early evening after 103 kilometres.

P1010731A good first day, but still a lot to be pedalled, as displayed on the left side of the picture!

Located nicely at a big lake I managed to build up the courage to actually go for a swim. Luckily I could hit the showers right after that.

Perfect temperature and weather accompanied me on this first day, I was sincerely hoping it would stay that way.
