Bike Adventure: Berlin Wall

Experience some of the best cycling in northern Germany while getting a unique glimpse into one of the most important historic elements of the 20th century. During a day of excellent road cycling the group will follow the former path of the Berlin Wall.  The route will include riding through the once divided city center and into the countryside of Brandenburg, eventually reaching the opulent nearby town of Potsdam. We'll break for food and drink at some of our favorite spots, and be sure to mark several historic locations along the ride, such as the Glienicke Brücke from the recent film Bridge of Spies, as well as the East Side Gallery and scattered remains of the former border and surveillance infrastructure.
