• Forests and Lakes Cycling from Olympiastadion to Schlachtensee

    45km ride with opportunity for swimming. Start: U-Olympiastadion 12:00 Finish: S-Schlachtensee approximately 5pm Speed: Not super fast but not super slow either. Approx 18km/h average. Since the weather will be hot tomorrow I thought we would take cover in the shade of the forests around the Havel to the west of Berlin. We will begin at U-Olympiastadion and take a few minutes to cycle round the grounds of the Olympic stadium before making our way to the Havel. The plan is to ride the North side from Wilhelmstadt to Sacrow (along the water and on paths as much as possible) . After 25kms we will take the ferry at Sacrow 1 stop to Krughorn and continue along a cycle path through the Westlicher Düppeler Forst along the waterside to Wannsee. The ferry departs at 1420 and 1550. Finally we will head in the direction of the Grunewald and Schlachtensee. There is a sandy beach and also a beer garden at Schlachtensee. Final opportunity for a swim before the tour ends at S-Bahn Schlachtensee. We will take breaks along the way, with a main stop and opportunity to swim either before the ferry or at Schlachtensee depending on how quickly we progress. Cost of ferry is 7 euros incl bike.

Water and snacks / packed lunch highly recommended. There is a Bier Garten at the very end.
