Fat Tire Bike Tour in Berlin

We had another great event today.... pedaling through the streets of Berlin experiencing the city's history, architecture and culture.  On a colder than desired day we still had a great time.  Our guides, Tom and Craig, did a great job shepherding us safely from site to site.  Through in a great lunch where many of the group tried a Flammkuchen, and the day was a smashing success.  Here are a few photos....

Craig, our Aussie tour guide telling us about the history of Alexanderplatz

WMU College of Business Students posing in front of Marx and Engels - love the irony!

Standing on the Berlin Wall .... red shoe is in East Berlin.

Having a little fun posing at Check Point Charlie.  Just a tourist spot now but at one time is was a major part of the cold war.

 The gang in front of the Brandenburger Tor - a place that has a rich and varied history.  Like Napoleon, we were going to try and take the horses home, but then we found out that was frowned upon!

Jaquelyn and her stylish bike "bell"

Craig explaining the Berlin Wall "Death Strips" with a part of the wall in the back ground.

Look, Michigan people on bikes..... fun to get them out of their cars.  We have walked, biked, trained, tramed, subwayed, boated, and did I mention walked..... 

Tom and Craig, our faithful Fat Tire Bike Tour Guides.  The BEST way to see and learn about Berlin and have a whole lot of fun along the way.  Visit them at
