My Berlin commute

My new work and my current temporary home are on the same street - only 13 km apart. The street changes names a couple times as it traverses severals boroughs of Berlin, but it's really a straight ride, mostly with good bike lanes on the street or sidewalk. Despite being totally inside the city, the density of traffic lights on this road is rather low and so I travel much faster on my bike than I would in Toronto. It's also totally flat!

Yesterday, I even found a nicer route that uses quieter streets:

Moving to Berlin is a real improvement in terms of quality of life! And the route to the sailing club is even better, half of it leading right through the Grunewald forest.
