In mild summer weather we started from the Strausberg forest and lake area and soon reached the Schorfheide via Altlandsberg, Bernau and Biesenthal. After a short refreshment in Eichhorst and a flying visit to the Askanierturm, we went north from Werbellinsee through a dense pine forest to Carinhall am Döllnsee. The Russian Orthodox monastery of St. Georg was finally reached via some sleepy villages in the Uckermark, where friendly monks served us Russian cuisine. A short time later we arrived at our daily destination Templin.

Rested and in a good mood, we continued along the Isar - from Munich to Landshut. The descent was very hesitant, because the Bavarian capital has so many interesting historical buildings on the one hand that you can't just drive past and on the other hand you had to wait for a heavy rain shower (as well as several trips) and the signposting of the Isar cycle path within Munich was in fact not available. After passing the English Garden, we decided on the left side of the Isar, which we continued to Moosburg. The bike path, which was made entirely of gravel, was in the immediate vicinity of the banks of the Isar, but was easy to ride. A flying visit took place in Freising, especially since the energy reserves had to be replenished.
After the demanding Alpine foreland, a very nice and relaxed tour.

Today drove from Upper Bavaria to the Bavarian capital. For this, the Isar cycle path was followed. Curiously, the Isar was only visible initially, once or twice in between and just before Munich. In addition, there were sections both behind Bad Tölz and in front of Munich, which can be identified as a hiking trail or MTB trail, but not as a long-distance cycle route! Well, when you arrive in M a day off is announced.

The goal of the 1st stage on the BKR was Immenstadt. Started in Lindau, it went a little way along Lake Constance towards Bregenz. Shortly before the border, the pan turned north past still controlled border crossings. Very soon I found myself confirmed in my planning to drive "only" 70 km today, because it was very time-consuming to go up and down. All in all a nice tour with great views, but you should definitely be trained or e-motorized. When we arrived in Immenstadt we were rewarded with a great view of the Großer Alpsee.

MTB was announced again today. The first step was from Strausberg via Prötzel to Rädikow on "too good" ground for MTB. From here it went on the well-known Brunnentalweg through mixed forest to Bad Freienwalde. The Kurpark with the Kurfürstenquelle were extremely impressive.
After a flying visit to the northernmost ski jumps in Germany, the Oderlandweg to Falkenberg was followed by a short picnic at the Teufelssee. A path of superlatives: fantastically beautiful landscape, gorges and throats, steep ascents and rapid descents (it was necessary to descend several times), sometimes not dangerous single trails. The Oderlandweg was quite a challenge, but overall it was nice and last but not least it was discovered that there is also a Märkischer Watzmann.

Despite initial doubts about the weather, we have been touring the Oderbruch again for a long time.
The Strausberg airfield initially took the Berlin-Barnim-Oderbruch cycle path to Bienenwerder to the Europabrücke. A large sign indicates that the bridge should be passable for pedestrians and cyclists from 2021, which would be very desirable, but remains to be seen!
On the well-visited Oderdeich the tour continued south to Groß Neuendorf and from there to Wilhelmsaue to the post mill. After a short visit to the ice cream parlor in Letschin (not far from Theodor Fontane's parents' house) the R1 to Neuhardenberg was followed. The round finally ended in Strausberg via Reichenberg and Hohenstein. The tour was relaxed and fortunately rain-free and the whole time there was a crazy smell of rapeseed and lilac in the air ...

With the best weather, Müggelsee was the destination today. The east bank of Lake Müggelsee was reached via Hennickendorf, Lichtenow, Kagel, Grünheide, Erkner and through the Hessenwinkel. The northern bank path was then followed - past the still closed Müggelsee lido - all the way to Friedrichshagen. In the small town of Münchehofe, the tomb was visited by Tamara Danz (former front woman with Silly, who died in 1996). From there it went back to the starting point of the tour via Schöneiche, Rüdersdorf and Vogelsdorf. Fortunately, there were some nice MTB sections again this time, although the well-developed paths and sections dominated.
