Challenge Route Day 6: Interlaken -> Lucerne

Riders will begin by riding the length of Lake Brienz and then through the flatlands outside of Meiringen before tackling the Brunig Pass. Those doing the Brunig will climb 400 meters in 5 kilometers and will get splendid views of the valley they’ve just ridden through.

If the weather is bad or some riders are not up to the climb, alternative itineraries using the boat from Interlaken and trains can be worked out. In any event, all riders will meet on the lake at Lungern for lunch.

The afternoon’s paths are flat and picturesque and will take us through the bustling medieval village of Sarnen. Quench your thirst with a tall beer in the market square; you’ve got another 30 kilometers.

Once on Lake Lucerne, we’ll follow the lakeside bike paths through villages, past private docks and rich neighborhoods until we reach Lucerne itself.

Our hotel overlooks the lake in the city center. Put your bike away and get your street clothes out: you’re on your own this evening to explore the city’s possibilities.
