Total cost of the trip: 0 EUR (or some EUR if we have lunch in the restaurant)

Re: Basel - Alsace Cycling Trip

In case the thought that we're a bunch of serious, fast "roadies" is putting people off ... I cycle to work every day Swiss style (slowly, totally upright, on my hybrid "trekking" bike) and will be treating this day trip as just the same, albeit for a longer distance.

You need to have done long-ish rides before (just so you know the bike is properly adjusted so you don't end up with a sore arse or wrists after riding for a few hours) but I'm sure we'll keep stopping for food and to take photos.

So come along!

Sounds good to me!

And don't worry everyone, I've got no spandex/lycra stuff.

Re: Basel - Alsace Cycling Trip

yes. There are some in the thread that indicated they'll go, but they haven't RSVP.

I will send to everyone my phone number in PM. Also, I will make provisionally restaurant reservation in Feldbach.

See you tomorrow!

Cheers!

Brilliant trip, Meeyat. Thanks for organising, and it was great to meet some new people too.

Plus the restaurant in Feldback, Restaurant Au Cheval Blanc, was excellent.
