Default Re: Berlin or Dust - I went for the Dust!

All tracks were locked in the Garmin, so I was ready to guide my Austrian friends to the Baltic Sea. The following year we met in Lübbenau.


This is the team: Barbara, me and Peter.




In the evening before the start it was time for briefing.



The track to Usedom and back until Finow.



I slept in a very interesting hotel, that was my room. If you ever come into that area, try it. don't be afraid of the trains most of the rails are locked.

First stop was Straupitz, we did some pics on the main street.




Typical boat for carrying their guests through the canal system.




Come on let's move, Peter wants to carry on.

Strange looking thing....like they decided to just quit finishing the spires and keep it right here. Or someone came along and sawed off the tops overnight.

There's a tiny church in Gurtnellen-Dorf near Wassen/ Andermatt/ CH with a chopped-off spire like that. They did finish it off with some peaked dome and cross, but it's totally out of proportion to the rest of the building.

what is an Egyptian statue doing at the Spreewald?
Lots of strange stuff around that area, by the looks of it.

Maybe next Sept?
Looking at some rental bikes in either Stralsund or Rostock at the moment, but they only seem to have roadie-stuff.
I'll keep digging.

You've got some sweet pics there...

Glambeck...they stopped the normal bus service, she has to take the school bus to get to the next town.

Any idea what that tower is/ used to be?
It looks to be neatly restored...
But yeah, we saw a lot of small towns along the Luebeck-Stralsund corridor of country-roads last year that started with a brandnew curbed and smooth-top roundabout followed by the old communist cobble-stone rollercoaster through town, past totally dilapidated and abandoned houses next to beautifully restored old period buildings.
The contrast was baffling.

It might be one of the pre WW1 summer-residences of the rich coastal trading families of the Hanse-fleet (the Baltic coast isn't that far?) which was sort-of kept afloat and used by the Commie-Party hobnobs?
Those families owned huge tracts of land as well as the local folks + villages as virtual slaves right into the 1930s.

Just a stone's throw away from the Polish border for the whole way?
Good to see you had some company there, too.
How long was the whole route? (one way)
How many days ?
(considering a lot of stops, an easy pace and lots of photo-taking).

Did you trailer the bike/ bikes to the Spreewald again for that last, 3. ride?

Thanks for a great read!

Hi Pete,

north of Neuhardenberg up to Chorin it's quite near to the border.



It takes two days with a lot of stops. With R. and also with Barbara and Peter it took us two days. A nice place for the night is Chorin.

For the 3. ride I trailered it for sure not to Spreewald, cause I wanted to do some exploring in the afternoon, I think it was Müncheberg where I parked.


By the way Barbara and Peter are in your backyard in the moment. Tasmania somewhere https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater
