Geocache Description:


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

Der Col de La Croix-de-Coeur (2174 müM) verbindet Riddes im Rhonetal mit Montagnier im Val de Bagnes. Vom altertümlich-schönen Montagnier steigt die Strasse in vielen Kehren rasch zum mondänen Verbier hinauf. Was offensichtlich für viele Menschen wie ein Paradies erscheint, ist für mich eher wie eine Art Disneyland, in dem Menschen sogar ihre Ferien verbringen...
Am besten suchst du dir den Weg stetig aufwärts strebend, bis du irgendwann über Verbier das Gefühl hast, hier sei Endstation. Doch siehe da, linksrum geht's auf einer schmalen Bergstrasse weiter, die sich alsbald in eine 8 km lange, ungeteerte Enduro und Quad-Piste verwandelt. An schönen Tagen werden sich auch viele Wanderer und Biker hier bewegen.
Die Spitzkehren und die steilen Abschnitte erfordern für jeden MoBiker ein Mindestmass an Motorradroutine. Es ist aber mit jedem Motorrad zu schaffen.
Oben angekommen wird dich das sensationelle Alpenpanorama vollauf zufrieden stellen!

Col de la Croix-de-Coeur (2174 m) connects Riddes (Rhone valley) with Montagnier (Val de Bagnes). There are many U-turns and bends up from beautiful Montagnier to contrasting Verbier. Find your way through that alpine city, tending up and up. As you think that's the end of the road you'll find it just turning left and up it goes again with a now narrow road. This road pretty soon ends up to change into a unpaved 8km dirt road. Nice to drive for endurists and quad drivers...
Don't be afraid - it's really possible to do it with any motorbike, but you need some knowledge in steep roads and and sharp bends.
Having arrived at the top you'll be overwhelmd by the absolutly great view to mountains, glaciers, valleys andandand... You'll feel lucky having done it!
