Brienzwiler to Spiez: 42 km
This was supposed to be our easy ride, but the Lakes Route 9 chose the very scenic but cliff climbing route rather than the flat side of the lake to Interlaken.
Legend has it that when the clouds move into the mountains and threaten rain, one might just catch a glimpse of the elusive Goat King. We were warned that during mating season he could be lured out of his den by the scent of sweaty cyclists climbing in the cliffs above. Of course, some deny his existence, but we were fortunate enough to spot the Goat King in his natural environment.
After placating him with mars bars he invited us back to his Goat King lair.
