Wiebke – Berlin

“started riding at age 5, car-free urban life (& coffee) lover exploring the old, new & constantly changing “Kiez”-areas of Berlin.

Why do you ride?

I love getting around the city on my bike. When I moved back to Berlin I took public transport a lot, and hated it. I started riding here in the winter, and it works, even in the snow & cold.

Best thing about cycling?

Being able to chose how to get from A to B via C and maybe even D. Freedom.

What improvements would you like to see for cyclists?

Wider bike lanes. More bike racks.

Fondest cycling memory?

Riding from Hamburg to Paris when I was a teenager. My bike got stolen in Paris. I hope it is still happily cruising the streets there.

Cycling tip?

Be alert at all times & don’t ride faster than your brakes work.

3 things you’d love the world to know about you?

– Jam & pickles maker extraordinaire.

– Fluent in English.

– Tour guide, showing you “my” Berlin by bike or on walking tours.
