The Big Ten Bunker Tour – 100 Bicycle Days Challenge

Another ride in quest of Munich’s hochbunkers, above-ground air raid shelters remaining from WWII. I have (again) changed the organization of my website. My rides will now be on the blog and not under the header titled Challenges. The site had become kind of a hodgpodge with overlapping categories. So back to the good old blog format and not separate pages – for a while, anyway.

If I wonder why I don’t ride my bike enough, it’s because I sit at the computer too much fooling around with my website. Anyway – click here for my ride #82.
p.s. Feedback from home tells me that my numbering of the pictures with the explanation below the slideshow (which I thought was so clever) isn’t very user friendly. Should I do it differently next time?

I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    Those Hochbunkers were certainly made to last. This odd errant reader liked your blog, Munich is so different to here.

    Thanks, Lednar (love that name)! You even erred past the bunkers. Glad you like the blog.

      Very nice blog.

    I really enjoyed this series too, Suzanne. I’d never heard of these before, and it’s interesting to see a collection of them together. I wish I’d thought to build a gallery of Albania’s bunkers when we were there. You’ll have to head down ther next and do it for me.

      Thanks, Scott, glad you enjoyed the series. I’m putting together a bunker page on my website, not finished yet. I have visited all that I could track down in Munich now.

    Well, the series shows that there are certainly a lot of ways to dress up and repurpose bunkers!
