I didn't hear from anyone for Saturday. So we will probably cancel it. Reserve with the WhatsApp group for Cycling for the Sunday event.

Saturday: from Basel east up the Rhine

Plan A rail to Basel, with own bike or rental bike from Basel?

Plan B., by car to Rheinfelden

Then it is cycling along the river upriver, to Bad Säckingen, and then back, turning at Möhlen to Helikon where we will have a picnic or barbecue at the home of Ulrike.

From Ulrike: The plan for Saturday means you go to Rheinfelden (Graham offered a lift). I can lend two bycicles. Then you ride to Bad Säckingen, back to Möhlin and then you have a wonderful ride through this beautiful Wegenstetter Tal (the velo tour crosses not the main street) It goes a bit uphill and than you are in Hellikon. BBQand salads and tea are waiting for you. hope this is clear enough, Ulrike

Sunday: new plan, instead of Basel north down the Rhine.

I (Vernon) can offer an alternative.

First by train to Kerzers then bike to the Papiliorama to see a garden full of butterflies and other animals (CHF16 for AHV or 19 Adult). Jungle Restaurant available.

Then biking 2 hours along the Wohlensee in the direction of Bern. Stopping at the Weyermannshaus outdoor pool for a swim.

We meet at Bern train station at 9:50 with tickets for the 10:08 S5 to Kerzers (CHF7 with 1/2 tax card, plus same for bike).
