Day Fourteen - Tuesday 9 August 2016

Day Fourteen - Tuesday 9 August 2016

Waldshut to Rheinfelden - about 44 kilometres

Our aim was to get as far as Basle today (66 km) but we failed in that attempt as we were so cold and damp and fed up with the weather that we decided to call it a day when we got to Rheinfelden. Still, 44 km wasn't too bad a ride for the day.

This was to be another day where we kept crossing the German / Swiss border - and the River Rhine.

The town of Bad Sackingen was well worth a visit. It has the longest covered bridge on the River Rhine

It was on this bridge that JP was able to experience being in two countries at the same time!

There is also a beautifully ornate baroque cathedral.

We eventually made it to the camp site near Rheinfelden, damp, cold and tired. JP soon headed for the swimming pool - never too tired to have a swim. I headed for a hot shower and change of clothes. We sat and ate a Pizza and chips together whilst I got busy on the computer.


  1. Enjoying reading your blog.JP has not only cycled many kilometres,but swum many too.Stay well.Elizabeth.xx

  2. Nice to see those pictures. You captured it beautifully. JP needs to have a hot shower after he swum. Take care. Love you both xxx
