Right at the beginning of this wonderful tour I decided to take the official MTB route…. And to be honest, the part up to the valley station of the Molésonbahn is, apart from a few passages, very road-heavy ... but then the fun begins😁 due to the rainfall this year, the paths are sometimes a challenge and a lot of fun. The panorama is awesome😍 so do this tour in good weather😉The route is technically demanding: partly steep passages with coarse gravel and paths washed out by the rain. In addition, it feels like 50 fences with the complete range of "transitions". I had to lift the bike over the fence 3 times - happy if you don't have an e-bike😜At the “Buvette la Challa” I treated myself to a delicious lunch - very friendly service and guests with a bombshell is a must to stop there unfortunately I let the service and the local guests convince me, the way up and not the single trail continue to choose straight ahead. Not a good idea ... for the next 15 minutes I pushed and carried the bike up the mountain🤬🤬🤬 and yes, I have an e-bike😜
The subsequent downhill passage down towards the Molésonbahn middle station was fun, but I was in the "wrong" valley. Up to the valley station (steep and rough gravel path) and then to Gruyères (main road) the fun factor was clear due to the lack of alternatives. I will test the “right” way back to Gruyères next time. All in all, it was a great tour that I can warmly recommend to tech-savvy bikers - with the appropriate corrections😜

The real idea was to drive to the Birg intermediate station (last station before Schilthorn). However, the path was too much of a good thing😜 very steep, unpaved with rough stones and the weather above was cloudy and cold. Thus made the normal circuit.
It was also fun. Especially the part from Gimmelwald to Stechelberg is🤩

Nice tour from Schwarzsee to Charmey. After a crisp ascent, we tried something at KM 7, but the way into the Jauntal seemed very steep. So on the road down and then on a great single trail to Charmey. Then on the official mountain bike path up towards Alta Chia (that's how it was planned) Due to the now limited time, we then chose a direct route to the Schwarzsee. The ascent (abbreviation🤪) at KM 33 has it all - the official route could be worthwhile ... 😁

After we drove the first approx. 12 km on asphalt, this changed suddenly😈 over meadows we made contact with cow dung and the effects of the rainfall of the last few days😁
The way to Holeflueh was definitely an experience and (once softened) it is a lot of fun to drive through and be amazed.
The conclusion down to the Emme and the subsequent single trail were the grand finale
