Berlin Velocouture and Bike LanesComments

As I wrote earlier, Berlin is like Amsterdam lite – flat, bike-friendly with extensive infrastructure. Bikes have the right away and despite the cabbies (like anywhere else) we rode alongside cars that were respectful and gave us room. You can rent a bike on most every corner, from the hotel, and rental shops.
While a bike town, Berlin also has rules and checkpoints. Karl Addison, our ride host, got popped for no brakes and no lights.
That’s his second offense and a fine. The third offense results in a confiscated bike.

As Berlin’s Mayor says, the city is poor, but sexy. Also a good ride.
