      The green zones of my hometown are slowly opening up to me again. Today we went on an after-work round with the Bianchi, which I set up again yesterday in my shared flat (!!) after my crash four weeks ago.Various routes are close at hand from my front door, today I decided on the Hirschau and the Isar floodplains. After a bit of shooting through the Schwabing rush hour, I'm relatively quick in the English Garden and thus in the countryside. I am really relieved that my memory has not betrayed me and that it is almost as easy in Munich to be surrounded by forest and nature in a very short time as in Augsburg - I wanted more city in my life again, but only concrete and asphalt is somehow nothing.So I shoot highly motivated and in a good mood in the direction of Garching, in between actually stopping for a few kitschy twilight photos and at the end headed for the Olympic Park, where my roommates have an evening picnic. Together we watch the city switch to night mode and enjoy one of the last summer days of the year.

      I don't know if I should be happy or if I think it's a shame that my tour from A to B actually comes to an end today. On the one hand, I'm really looking forward to my girlfriend and the picture-perfect idyll of East Brandenburg, on the other hand, I have the feeling that I am only now slowly growing into this mode.After a long breakfast with Eric on the balcony, I first drive through Berlin in shooting mode. As always, the city gives me a boost of energy that I pass on directly to my legs and really let it rip on the city bike paths.I received the receipt for this shortly after my first break in Bernau: For the next 20 kilometers I only have lead in my legs and in the brooding midday heat I suffer every meter that does not go downhill. Me idiot, why do I have to shoot my grain far too early on the last stage of all things?In Finowfurt the tide turns again because the towing cycle path that begins there is so beautiful that all tiredness falls away and I cycle along the river with a pensive smile. In Eberswalde I take a longer break in the café of the local bouldering hall, during which I betray myself with two nice guys from the staff.And then it's off to the very last section of my journey, to Brodowin. After a further enchanting 15 kilometers over well-paved, slightly sloping cycle paths, my navigation system served me four kilometers of lush uphill at the very end over the cobblestones that I called “Brandenburg Parkett”, which were certainly from the Middle Ages, embedded in sandy subsoil, as you can see it is only found in East Germany.Finally I reach the lake where my girlfriend and her boyfriend are lying in the sun. 820 kilometers and 10 days later I'm at my destination without a breakdown or accident and I fall off my bike straight into the lake again.

      After one last look at the impressive antlers of the fallow deer that lives on the Springbachmühle, I drive on, now finally heading for the capital. The headwind is getting on my nerves again today, but I quickly get into my rut and drive to Ferch am Schwielowsee, where I have a coffee and a sponge cake on the bank. You can feel the proximity to Potsdam and Berlin - there are a lot of cyclists on the road, especially some of my age. Most of the time I have greeted couples or single elderly men on my tour. Cycling needs significantly more women.I rush through Potsdam in the home straight mode, I can already feel it, the border to the last major milestone before the end of my journey: Berlin, place of longing, former temporary home, maybe also the future, as soon as this pandemic makes me no longer hesitate. The first few kilometers on the Wall Cycle Path I race through the forest with a wide beam on my face and send my family a voice message with euphoric howls. I actually cycled here from Augsburg on my own in nine days! Alone! Without electric drive!I spend the afternoon in the bathing area at Wannsee, where a friend picks me up in the evening and cycles with me to Neukölln. There Andrew and Eric greet us with beer raised - they too arrived in Berlin half an hour ago on their bikes (we remember: I met them shortly after Augsburg!). I also stay with them today and their apartment is conveniently located directly above a pub. We celebrate the beautiful evening and above all we tough cyclists!

      Milk is just useless. It's the second long-life milk that spoils me on this trip. For this reason, among other things, I only drink oat milk at home - it lasts much longer and tastes better to me (I'll save the sermon about animal welfare and the dying planet at this point). Unfortunately they are only available in a liter box and I don't want to lug it around.So this morning I drink my coffee black and don't eat anything. Anyway, I have the feeling that my body has now completely got used to the rigors of my vacation and can now cope with my normal food rations again even under stress.He proves this this morning by driving the route to Wittenberg without any problems despite the annoying headwind and only having breakfast at noon. And attach a lunch as well. Unfortunately, my tour map does not show me any restaurant highlights for the remaining distance and I therefore decide to make provisions.A wise decision. The tour on the Europaradweg 1 out of Saxony-Anhalt and into my penultimate federal state, Brandenburg, has an enchanting landscape and is very sparsely populated. Only in Raben, the village belonging to the impressive, but closed Rabenstein Castle, do I find an open tourist information office that sells me a water ice cream. Here I'm only 20 kilometers from my destination, the pretty Springbachmühle near Bad Belzig with an excellent restaurant.

      After what is probably the most idyllic breakfast of the tour at the jetty of the Kanujugend Leipzig, I pack up and go on the first stage of the section of the A-B tour that I have declared as a holiday part. That means fewer kilometers and more bathing lakes with an insignificant gradient.I curve through the pretty landscape and am a little annoyed by the strong headwind that is blowing today - but not too much. The worst part is definitely behind me. The first lake that comes into question for me is only after 44 kilometers near Bitterfeld, where I chill for lunch and in the afternoon before I make my way to one of my favorite places: the Ferropolis.There are usually several festivals that interest me here (e.g. the Melt). These have all been canceled this year, of course, so the site has opened for campers for the first time. How cool to pitch your tent under the post-apocalyptic weathered coal excavators, surrounded by hippie beaches and festival feeling! Others thought so too and so it echoes loudly from different directions from equipment brought along, while barbecues, funnels and celebrations take place under pavilions. However, there are also a few families, which is why it is generally very civil.In the evening I sit on the empty festival site, drink a bike and look at the moon that shines over the green illuminated excavator. I would like to perform here one day.

      After a quiet night by the gurgling Mühlbach, while having coffee, I notice that I have made a mistake in my travel planning: I firmly assumed that I would not arrive in Leipzig until Tuesday. But that's not true, it's tonight. That surprisingly gives me a whole day longer that I can need to get to Brodowin in time for my friend's birthday. I decide to accept this gift and cycle to Leipzig today, but split the remaining three stages into four relaxed stages. After all, I'm on vacation, not on the run.After a relaxed start of the day downhill through the idyllic Mühltal, the last foothills of the Thuringian Forest demand a lot from my calves before I finally stand on the ridge that marks the border with Saxony-Anhalt. From now on it will be flatter and flatter!For good things, I follow the pretty, albeit somewhat bland, White Elster Cycle Path to the Cospudener See at the gates of Leipzig, where I make use of the nudist culture, which is much more accepted in East Germany, and I basically get off my bike plunge into crystal clear water.In the evening I have an appointment with a Komoot colleague, dear Sebastian. He recommends that I try out the canoe club on the street for camping. He would often see tents of hiking canoeing on the green space, maybe they also take hiking cyclists. Lo and behold, they do it! I can even sleep in the house and save myself the annoying tent.I spend the evening first in a welcome urban atmosphere with the Vietnamese and then with a few beers and nice company from Sebastian and Martin from the Leipzig canoeing youth on their pier, where we philosophize about God and the world and listen to the raccoons quarreling over the water .
