Geocache Description:

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

Der Umbrail Pass (2501 müM) verbindet auf einer Länge von 33km Santa Maria (CH) mit Bormio (I). Im Aufstieg von Santa Maria ist ein etwa 3km langes Stück nicht asphaltiert. Das wird wohl noch Jahre so bleiben, machen doch diverse Auto- und Pneuhersteller an diesem Pass immer wieder ausführlich Testfahrten. So gesehen bietet der Strasse für jeden einen Lieblingsabschnitt ;-)
Auf beiden Seiten gibt es genügend Kehren und Kurven für Pistenwetzer. Die Aussicht lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig.
Der Cache befindet sich sozusagen im "Niemandsland".
Viel Spass!

Nicht vergessen!
Ganz nahe liegen die 2 leicht erreichbaren Tradi-Caches:
MoCache_CH89.2 Stelvio - Stilfserjoch (Italy)
Tibet Hütte

Also nichts wie hin und loggen!

Umbrail (2501 m) connects with a 33km long road Santa Maria (Switzerland) with Bormio (Italy). It's a phantastic narrow pass road with lots of turns, bends and serpentines, as well as tunnels and galleries. Riding up from St. Maria there is still some 3km unpaved road. It probably will stay so for while because the car industry (Mercedes, etc) and tireproducers every year make their test drives up this pass. In this way I think that every rider/driver will find he's favourit piece of road to drive.
Of course there are beautiful lookouts too.
The cache somehow is between the borders...
Have fun!

Don't forget the 2 nearby and easy accessible traditional caches!
MoCache_CH89.2 Stelvio - Stilfserjoch (Italy)
Tibet Hütte

Don't bother around - go ahead and log them! ;-)
