The Tour on Google Earth

Friday, March 13, 2009

By request, I have added ten kml-files to show you our complete bike tour to Copenhagen from a satelite perspective. The files will work with Google Earth. Each file shows a single stage and indicates the ridden trail with a blue line.

You can either download the files in the category "Google Earth" on the right, or on the individual page for a stage day.

The click on the number of kilometers will show you the elevation chart in a new browser window.

You also will find the charts on the individual page for a stage day.

If you download all ten kml-files and doubleclick them at once, Google Earth will show our whole trip in one window!

Please, download the zipped file archive and enjoy our ride.

Since being honored as a Blog Of Note we received more than 7.500 visitors so far. Welcome all and thanks for your comments.

The overseas participants of the bike ride still recover from minor bruises, just ready to encounter the new challenge, I may announce officially: Berlin to Paris in 20XX! Slightly hillier it is too.

Cycling from Berlin to Copenhagen
Three Aussies, one Kiwi, two Germans had cycled from Berlin to Copenhagen in twelve days.

Two Aussies had driven the broom wagon with their luggage.

The lazy guide dog had been chauffered all the way either in the car or in the trailer at the back of the tandem.

Rider's comments

Saturday, September 1, 2007

Cycling from Berlin to CopenhagenPam says: "Wow, what can I say! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine I would have the oportunity to have such an adventure. It would never have been possible without the wonderful people that surround me. Rudi & Brigitta for suggesting this event in the first place; Doug for encouraging me to take the bull by the horns and go with it. Shirley for her continuous support as my trustful front rider, sighted guide & friend. Rae for her encouragement and sense of humour and our new friends TnT for rounding our group off. I am now looking forward to my next challenge, so watch out you lot, who knows where we will be going next!"

Cycling from Berlin to CopenhagenShirley says: "It has been an interesting holiday full of exercise and great food. I've enjoyed the riding and thank each one of my co riders for their support during the ride and the friendships formed. It was suprising how quickly we covered the kilometres and how easy the riding was."

Cycling from Berlin to CopenhagenBrigitta says: "Lots of fun, laughs and impressions. Thank you guys for the great tour. What can I say: I would do it again!"

Cycling from Berlin to CopenhagenRae says: "I am really sad that the bike ride is over, even though I was not riding. Doug and I in the car became a pretty good team, shouting at one another from time to time and for me, cringing under the dash as we did what became our famous U turns. I was really pleased to have a drive too and found it fairly scary. And of course there is the evidence of me on the bike. WOW! How exciting it was too. Just grand to have had time with a great bunch of people, who were very kind to the granny of the team."

Cycling from Berlin to CopenhagenTrish says: "I felt that I would have liked to bike longer. Sad knowing that it was ending. For me personally this has been an experience of a life time. You never too old to take a new challenge. The next bike trip I do on my own, because all the riders were to slow for me. (mind you: I wouldn't have made it, if I hadn't met up with these wonderful caring people). I have been blessed."

Cycling from Berlin to CopenhagenTrevor says: "What a great experience; great food, we tried every beer, a very interesting route and most importantly very enjoyable company. I got a very good insight into Northern Germany Culture and it's depressed economy, which was totaly contrasted in our respect by my impressions of Denmark. Berlin and Copenhagen as the pevital cities were both beyond expectations. All in all I was totally overawed."

Cycling from Berlin to CopenhagenDoug says: "What a great trip,what a great team of people and what wonderful towns and villages we travelled through. Learnt more about driving in Europe in these last few days with our 3 wheels on the kirb u turns, u turns inbetween approaching buses and trucks. So much fun and pleasure in this holiday that will be hard to beat."

Cycling from Berlin to CopenhagenRudi says: "Whole lotta fun - although I don't look like it!"
