    Have you tried the biroto.eu website?

    Hi, I'm currently living in Berlin and would be interested in a Berlin specific part to the forum! I'm currently pretty detached from cycling though due to having a young child and no time but am hoping that that will change in the new year. Who else on here is in Berlin then?

    Do you know the biroto.eu website? They have a good selection of bike routes across Europe that you could use as the basis of planning a route that takes in other parts of Germany if you wanted a bit more climbing or varying terrain.

    If @Lastmanstanding really is Neil Matthews I'd have to say what a depressing ending to an otherwise inspiring performance...

    If however, it is not, then can the real Neil Mathews come forwards, thank the forum for it's continued support over the last few weeks, personally referencing @hippy 's PR advice and then finish with a brief bit about how the self supported nature of the race and the challenges it entailed were what made it so special and how you will be back again next year drenched in suncreme and determined to finish with the cap firmly affixed to your head...

    What about the route planning tool on Strava but set to plot a route suitable for runners?
    I've used this successfully whilst planning off road routes several times before though you need to be careful that it doesn't casually slip a number of sets of stairs into the route without you realising...

    Berlin - have you seen the route for the Transgermany? The section between Forst and Erkner is pretty much all off road, and highly recomended!

    What are you planning?

    Have you tried the website biroto.eu ? They have amalgamated a significant number of bike routes across Europe. The section covering Germany, and more specifically Berlin/Brandenburg (where I live) is really good. All routes can be seen on a map as well. They do not list sections that are 'car free' as such, but the routes I have followed have been pretty low on mileage alongside cars, sticking instead to rideable paths and trails.
