The winterlings in Reichenow are in full bloom. The photos only give an indication of this.
There is a beautiful hiking trail around the "Langen See" at Reichenow Castle Park. Some of the photos were taken there, I forgot the recording device at the rest area - sorry.
Half of the way back from Möglin to Reichenow is a dirt road with a corresponding surface.

On familiar paths and new sections it goes (maybe the last time this year) all over the Oderbruch.
We were pleasantly surprised by the section on Friedhofstrasse to Kienitz (starts shortly after Sophienthal). An absolutely quiet and beautiful side street.
From Kienitz to Letschin there was much more competition with plenty of horsepower. Then I would recommend going on the Oder cycle path to Groß Neuendorf. From there take farm roads and into Letschin via Solikante. That's a few more kilometers.
From Letschin to Platkow there is another very quiet section.
The last section to Gusow train station is along the road, but bearable.
In Gusow the church (nruine) shines in the light of the late afternoon sun. Then you go past smaller construction sites to the train station.

Nice tour in sunny autumn weather.
It's all there:
quiet side streets, paved paths (a bit bumpy), bike paths along the road, dirt roads and beautiful paths along the water.
I particularly liked the Marquardt Palace and Park and the bike path of sympathy.
Unfortunately, we couldn't see that much of the latter, because it quickly got dark.
The signposting of this cycle path is much better than it was 3 years ago, but it is still not completely or difficult to see.

The fog stayed true to us all day. It was a pretty wet and cold affair. But the streets that we used in between were so empty - also an experience.
We actually wanted to go to Frankfurt / Oder, but then changed our minds.
Always with the hope that we will still see a ray of sunshine when we leave the Oder and stay more west - unfortunately in vain.
On the Oder again a lot of barriers because of the African swine fever, but this time only to the left and right of our path. We didn't have to take any detours.

Nice weekend tour through the Oderbruch.
During the week there is certainly more going on on the stretch of road from Altfriedland via Reichenberg and Grunow to Klosterdorf.
Almost only (quiet) cycle paths are used on the way to Altfriedland.
At the Friedland ponds we had to push in places. The ground was too soft. The section is signposted as a bike path, but is more of a hiking trail. Unfortunately, there were not many birds to be seen either, at least not by the ponds.

Here are a few small tips about this tour.
The road bridge over the Dahme at the "Neue Mühle" lock is being renovated and is expected to be closed until March 2021. You have to carry the bike over the pedestrian bridge.
The promenade, which we then took to the "Neue Mühle" lido, is actually reserved for pedestrians. Today we were there all alone.
We continue on cycle paths and mostly quiet side streets via Kablow and Bindow to Dolgenbrodt. There are benches right by the water at the old ferry house - ideal for a little rest.
If it weren't for Corona, you could stop by.
After Blossin we take the road - hardly any traffic. Then it's off to Wolzig on an unpaved farm road.
The road from Wolzig to Kummersdorf is a little busy. We accept that for this short section, because the forest path to Kummersdorf is pretty bumpy.
The route along the Storkower Canal from Kummersdorf to Philadelphia is once again a highlight. You can't see the tree roots under the autumn leaves and you have to be careful. But we don't want to go fast on this beautiful section anyway. The originally wider gravel path has become a narrow path over the years. Maybe more cyclists and hikers should use it :)
Continue to Storkow again street, then a beautiful forest path towards Dahmsdorf. The Storkow Castle is also worth a look.
From Dahmsdorf to Wendisch-Rietz we are surprised by a completely new and very wide cycle path.
After passing Wendisch Rietz, we actually wanted to continue the journey along the Scharmützelsee, but then decided to try the (for us) new bike path that runs alongside the road towards Beeskow.
The new cycle path from Wendisch-Rietz to Lindenberg is very nice and wide and has an excellent surface. The road traffic is a bit annoying in the long run - for pleasure cyclists :)
I would then recommend the variant along the Scharmützelsee via Diensdorf-Radlow and drive via Herzberg to Bornow or Beeskow.
Today is over for us in Lindenberg.
The days are already quite short and we don't want to arrive in Beeskow in the dark.
