the great Sunday detox velo touring:

Going by bikes from Basel to Badenweiler Spa. After a long ride on a bike, what's better than spa reward!

1) departure Basel Badischer Bahnhof at 10:00 am
2) riding through Weil am Rhein, Wittligen, Kandern, Sehringen (about 35km)
3) arriving at Badenweiler thermal spa

4) enjoying Thermal Baths, Sauna, etc for couple of hours

5) cycling back to Basel

For those who are not into cycling - you can come by car straight to spa, and join us there.

Total ride: 35 km one way, 70km return.
total cost: 12 EUR ticket to spa. (note that there are different options for tickets, i.e. +5 EUR for sauna; +5 EUR for Roman Baths)

  • suzybg - The hubby told me that the Tour of Switzerland finishes in Schnafhausen that day so we are taking the train over to watch cycling instead.

Re: The Great Sunday Detox Velo Ride

We were looking at doing this but with Bad Bellingen Spa (didn't know about this one). We were considering a loop going via Germany in one direction then crossing the River/Grand Canal at Neuenburg and doing France the other way - just not clear on the French bit at Chalampe/Ottmarshiem - as it appears from cycling maps we have that you cannot follow the canal/river at that point and need to go inland.

We just got a basket for the bike so can bring a bag for towels/etc.

We'll let you know for sure when we get back from the UK next week.

Yeah, Bad Bellingen Spa is another option. Slightly further away; though I think that this one and Bad Bellingen are similar.

There are interesting cycling routes on this web-site http://www.2rives3ponts.eu/ . We can choose any route for return, whatever everyone feels like.
