A friend asked me if my enthusiasm to use my bike to go to work still persists after my move to a new place.

It does.

As a matter of fact, I'm truly privileged in this respect. My new location allows me to take partly the same route as previously, namely, along the entire west-east axis of the Tiergarten with the Interconti and the Sony Center as the respective entry points. What's more, I've realized that my new route touches some of the most scenic places of Berlin:

Prager Platz
Witttenbergplatz und das KaDeWe
Großer Stern

My daily ride to the lab could be sold to tourists as a sight-seeing tour. 😊
