Copenhagen To Berlin
The first in our summer series as we ride from Copenhagen to Berlin.COMING SOON
Have you ever wanted to try bikepacking? Maybe you don't know how to get started, don't know a route, or don't want to go alone. Join us and your fellow RCC members as we spend a beautiful long weekend riding from Copenhagen to Berlin. Please register your spot via the RCC app. When? May, Saturday 27th - Monday 29th (Monday is a public holiday). We depart at 06:30 Saturday morning to catch the 13:30 ferry from Gedser to Rostock. What? Ride to Berlin, overnight stay south of Rostock and in Berlin. How long? 225kms per day (450km total - the ferry is 50km hence why the route says 500km) What bike do I need? We will be riding our road bikes. The tour will be 95% on road with small light gravel sections. We recommend tyres of 28mm for comfort and durability. A gravel bike isn't required. How do we get back? On Monday we take a train from Berlin to Rostock, ferry across to Falster, ride to Nykøbing F, train home from there. How much will it cost? There is no cost to join - but you just need to pay for food, accommodation, and transport. Please follow the links below to book. Where will we stay? In a hostel/campground south of Rostock and in a hostel or apartment in Berlin (to be confirmed end of April). Rapha will book accommodation to stay together at a reasonable price, which you will then pay for via MobilePay. What do I need to bring? We will have a support car which will transport any clothes and gear you need along the route! Am I capable? You must be able to ride your bike for long hours and manage energy levels across this period. If you have ridden in a Rapha intermediate ride you will most likely be capable. Average speed is likely to be 25km/h over 10 hours in the saddle. Deadlines: By signing up you agree that you will take part and confirm as soon as possible. You must register and confirm by Monday 15 May in the RCC app chat. We will hold an information session on Wednesday 17 May at the Clubhouse. Extra info: On Monday we will ride around Berlin with members of Rapha Berlin and Rapha Munich, hoping to explore the city and ride out to Potsdam, before heading home and arriving back in Copenhagen Monday night. This ride info will be updated as more information comes. Please feel to ask any questions if you are interested. The ride is capped at 10 people.
