Your mountain bike tour begins here and you will be required to use your calf muscles to reach the upper Lauchernalp station. Enjoy the view of the Bietschhorn and a refreshing stop at the restaurant at the top of the gondola lift. Follow on fun Breithorn Bike route to Ried. The route leads eastwards to the village of Fischbiel before a steady climb of about one kilometer to Netzbord: the start of the descent.
