Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

On Oranienburger Strasse
This beautiful graffiti is on a squalidly magnificent building called the Tacheles. It's exhibit A in a fight between squatters who'd turned it into artists' Co-op and the bank that wants to demolish the building and replace it with something grand and expensive.
I'm not sure if it's still occupied, but it's surrounded by a chain link fence. Still there's a weedy walkway leading into the complex, which I had no intention of exploring, even without the shifty guy carrying something that looked like a radio set from the era of soviet occupation, who was coming out as I walked past.
There's a lot going on here for sure.
