Berlin six-day cycle race

The six-day race in Berlin has been a hit with sports fans since 1997. This year's event, which runs from 26 to 31 January 2012, once again promises top-class cycling action at the velodrome in Germany's capital.

And if you feel inspired to get on a bike yourself, there are many cycle routes to choose from in and around the city, such as the Berlin Wall Trail and the Dahme Cycle Route, which connects the city with the countryside to the south.
