A bit late but maybe for the archives...

It depends what sort of thing you are looking for. For day rides then its quite nice heading out to Müggelsee and the other lakes out there is quite nice. Also quite nice is the route to Zehdenick or out towards Potsdam. If you want multi-day rides then best heading out to Brandenburg - either by bike or skip the city by taking an S-Bahn or RB to begin with. Have a look at OpenCycleMap or the Brandenburg Tourist Board for suggestions.

Rides in and around Berlin

Also for the archives...
I was lucky enough to have lived in Berlin for a couple of years and enjoyed the cycling culture of the city very much. In the city, there are a lot of protected bike lanes and drivers have a high awareness of cyclists. As far as day trips, there is a nice path that leaves from the Moabit neighborhood and goes north, past Tegel Airport for a good distance. The ride out to Potsdam is also very nice and affords some good views of the Havelsee. Berlin is relatively flat. A ride with some rolling hills and good scenery should include a trip through the Gruneweld. Bike shops are easy to find and you will also see the occasional vending machine for tubes.

I second the Grunewald recommendation. I was there yesterday. I was mostly riding around Teufelsberg. It has a good selection of single track for advanced and beginner riders.
Treptow-Kopenick area is good too. Specifically the area around the Fernsehturm (TV Tower) just south of the lake. All the single track is good for beginners but the downhill course isn't beginner friendly.
