Ride Berlin

The lap around the Great Wannsee covers roughly 60 kilometers of narrow roads, roads that don’t see much traffic on Saturday mornings and that make for a perfect backyard breakaway.

RIDE BERLIN

ESCAPING THE RUSH

Berlin. The German capital is a city with many facets. It’s a city with a colorful history, one in which culture, art, and metropolitan behavior go hand in hand. Berlin is a city that hardly rests. However, it’s possible to escape the rush. And that is exactly what Rick Schubert and Danny Liebisch did on a crisp day in February.

Spending a major part of the year chasing the professional mountain bike circus around the globe, Rick enjoys the diversity of his home town. As a professional photographer, he’s used to look at Berlin from a different angle. The months on the road help him to read the city in his own way.

Prior to the rush of his 2019 season, Rick wanted to capture Berlin in a special way. He was looking for a rather unusual canvas. And he found it along the Havel and Great Wannsee. Together with one of his mates, Danny Liebisch, he headed out to capture the sceneries of a cold ride along the shores.

The Great Wannsee is a bight of the Havel river, located in the south-west of Berlin. From Moabit, where both Rick and Danny live, they headed towards the Grunewald. Reaching the Heerstrasse, one of the city’s arterial roads, the scenery couldn’t have been much more different than what was awaiting them just a little while later.

It’s been an early Saturday morning and the birches were dressed in their best weekend attire. The Grunewald was rather quite and reflected the watery surface of the Havel. It’s been what they were looking for. Danny’s breath cut through the moments, setting the rhythm for Rick’s shutter.

The lap around the Great Wannsee covers roughly 60 kilometers of narrow roads, roads that don’t see much traffic on Saturday mornings and that make for a perfect backyard breakaway. Especially in February. They’re the perfect setting for an escape from the day-by-day hectic life that make Berlin the place it is. A restless city with place to rest. A city of unexpected facets.
