Marriage - or any other partnership - needs agreement for both/all partners to do anything. What's the problem?

Shhh, don't spoil the illusion. That's meant to be a secret.

*Obv, forums are completely different...

Re: Berlin to Copenhagen

I also went in 2008, in July (and spent 7 days cycling). I stayed in B&Bs/hotels, which I'd booked in advance, though I think I could have got away without doing so (except in the big cities): places were generally fairly quiet, esp. in the German section. I agree with the previous poster about the surfaces: they're generally good, but there are some rough sections, esp. on the forest tracks. I was on 28mm tyres, and just about managed (but one of my rims did collapse just before CPH -- perhaps a coincidence, but...).

(I stayed at this place south of CPH: recommended, if you want to give yourself an almost-at-the-end treat: http://www.roedvigkro.dk/)

2008, in the Autumn. Stayed in B and Bs and hotels. There were some unpaved sections and some very sandy in Germany. Also some lage concrete slab areas. Bromptons a bad idea for some of the German bit.
