Before leaving, we installed on the car a bike rack that we had brought over in our luggage.
We left our bike boxes and a few other things at Hotel Fly Away, and then drove the bikes to Sarnen. After a light breakfast at Sarnen train station, Piaw and I set off on our bikes towards Brünigpass. We passed the Sarnersee and the Lungerersee on a nice quiet bike path to the west (the major road passes the lakes on the east).
Past the Lungerersee the path headed up a steep and unpaved section that followed the train tracks, and soon we had a great view of the lake.
At Brünigpass, we decided to take the main road down for a faster descent. Soon we passed Meiringen. We had lunch at the Lammi restaurant, eating their incomparable bratwurst and noodles.
After lunch we climbed to Rosenlaui. The rain was getting heavier and I couldn't see anything in the valley due to the clouds. We arrived at Hotel Rosenlaui, and I put my bike away and took a nap, waking in time for Rosenlaui's always-wonderful four-course dinner.
