This spectacular 35km route leads cyclists from Sierre to Cordona, with an uphill height gain of 1,000m departing from Salquenen. Close to the famous Mengis and Varone Bisses, a wild road beckons cyclists before attacking the first of 6 « Gravel » sections, which, with gentle uphills and downhills, leads to the peaceful village of Cordona. After a short downhill to Planige, the road flattens out towards Venthône for the second section, which passes above the Sierre>Crans-Montana funicular. The third 300m-400m downhill section leads to the village of Loc, and the fourth section leads to the commune of Miège. You briefly join regional route n°72 «Chemin du Vignoble» for a fifth gravel segment which offers wonderful viewpoints over the Rhone Valley, before turning left onto the last unsealed section which takes the adventurous cyclist to Sierre. Apart from its quiet roads and exceptional viewponts, this uphill offers a truly original perspective.
