We cycled the 600 metre descent
from Greich to Morel. By the time we got to Morel my
front brake wasn’t working but we continued on
the lesser descent to Brig where we caught the train
We took the slow train to Spiez to admire the scenery,
the express cuts through the tunnel. The train had 'wheel
in' entry for our fully loaded bikes with plenty of
room to maneuver them. Far better than having to manhandle
them into the goods van.
The path from Spiez to Interlaken runs alongside the
lake and is next to, but separate from, the main road
for most of its length. It is very scenic but noisy.
We had a coffee and cake at the Grand Hotel Restaurant
in Interlaken and then pushed on to Lauterbrunnen. The
path was pleasant and quiet, and we could see the magnificent
peak of Jungfrau straight ahead. It was rough and we
traveled slowly to avoid puncturing the rear tyres on
our heavily loaded bikes.
