In order to organize a tandem tour in the fall, we wanted to drive parts of the route first, because the own impression despite accurate maps and elevation profiles can not be replaced...
The stretch from Sarnen to Giswil was very nice and quiet, followed by a steep road to Lungernsee (up to 12%). After Lungern it was again steep uphill, followed by a pleasant, almost flat road until just before the pass. Until then we were spoiled with almost car-free roads and paths. Fortunately, the section on the big pass road was only short and after the Brünig pass our bike route followed again a small and quiet road up the Hasliberg. From there it was a steep descent to Meiringen. Partly the route was not asphalted, but nevertheless well ridable.
After a lunch break in Meiringen, we had to share the road for a few kilometers with motorcyclists who have an interesting idea of traffic safety and consideration :-(
The road up to the grosse Scheidegg was mainly one thing: steep (up to 17%)! Since we had not yet undertaken any major tours this year, the climb was very strenuous. But we could enjoy a very beautiful landscape.
After a well-deserved break, we quickly went downhill to Zweilütschinen, from where we took the train home very tired.
