E-Bike Trophy - destination Sankt Martin
Show all 5 images
The best way to start the exit to the Walser settlement Sankt Martin is at the Tamina Therme in Bad Ragaz. After a short drive through the health resort you reach the Valenserstrasse, which winds uphill. No more cars are to be expected on this road, because since the construction of the Tamina Bridge, this road has been reserved for bikers, hikers and forestry workers. After a slightly stricter climb, you now have an excellent view of the Tamina Bridge. It is recommended not to cross the bridge, as the roads on this side of the valley are quieter. Follow the road past the villages of Valens and Vasön. After Vasön, the road leads down to the Mapragg reservoir. But before you reach the dam wall, turn right of the main road in the first sharp bend. From here, a simple gravel road leads along the reservoir, away from traffic. At the end of the lake we cross the Tamina over the hiking bridge. On the other side of the river, the path leads along the road towards Vättis. Even before the village you change again to quiet side roads, which lead to the village. In the village you follow the signs "Calfeisental" and leave the village on this route. Thanks to the e-bike, the narrow and harsh valley entrance is soon left behind and after a good 300 meters of altitude you reach the impressive dam wall of the Gigerwaldsee. From the dam wall, cars may only be driven to the wildly romantic Walser village on the hour until ten minutes before half way. For this last section, a bicycle light is recommended.
For the return to the valley we follow the road via Vättis, to Pfäfers and from there to the starting point Bad Ragaz.
