Birthday: 12th january
Current city: Berlin
What’s the bike scene like in Berlin for females?
Hmmm…I don´t know much about the “scene” – I ride by myself or with my friends.
However, Berlin is full of bicycles – most people use it as means of transport, and with the city being as flat as a pancake in most parts and also lots of traffic
(jams), I guess that makes perfect sense. However it´s also hard to miss the fact that fixie´s have become kind of a fashion trend here – you see them everywhere. There´s plenty of bike shops everywhere, bike events are being organized all throughout the year, and you´ll find all kinds of cyclists – from race to mtb over the casual ones who just use their bikes to get from A to B.
What’s your favourite ride right now?
My Rocky Mountain MTB although I ride it by far not often enough due to the lack of mountains in the Berlin area.
Where’s your favourite place to ride?
Surroundings of Dresden, especially in spring time when the rape fields are in full bloom. Or through a big city with empty streets after midnight.
Favourite riding outfit: Anything comfortable.
Favourite food: Thai food. Chocolate, cake, ice cream, you name it. I have a very big sweet tooth.
Favourite movie: garden state.
Favourite book: There´s way too many to select just one. I like most of the Douglas Coupland books, Siri Hustvedt, …
