Geocache Description:

"Drive in Cache" speziell für Motorrad Fahrer (und andere...)
"Drive in Cache" especially for motorcyclists (and others...)

Tourmande (1258 müM) ist ein langezogener schmaler Pass über wunderschöne Jurahöhen durch wunderschöne, für den Jura typische Waldweiden (pâturages boisés typique du Jura).
Die Strasse verbindet Couvet im Val de Travers auf einer Seite mit Champagne am Neuenburgersee (ja, genau das Dorf, welches den Namen noch behalten durfte, jedoch nicht den Namen seines Weins...). Zum andern führt aber auch eine Höhenstrasse (Haut route du Jura) via Les Rasses nach Ste-Croix (und von dort in wenigen Metern auf den Col des Etroits...).
Nein, dies ist kein Micro! Hey – das kleine Restaurant grad um die nächste Kurve ist ein echter Geheimtipp...

Tourmande (1258 m) is a narrow but good to drive pass. You'll drive through wonderful jura meadows spotted with the typical pinetrees (pâturages boisés).
This road connetcts Couvet (Val de Travers) with Champagne at Lake of Neuchatel. Yes, it's true! Champagne's a little village in Switzerland. Try it's wine – it might be a bit different to just commonly champagne ;-)
There's another possiblity. Coming from Couvet, some km's after the pass, you may choose the road via Les Rasses to Ste-Croix, where from you can easily reach "Col des Etroits" in a few steps...
By the way - no, this is not a micro again! One more thing – the tiny little restaurant just around the next bend/curve is a real insiders secret...
