Finally back on the bike. After a good breakfast I start at 8 o’clock always along the Swiss border. On mostly small paths it goes hilly until Basel and then flat through the Rhine valley. At noon it gets very hot and I take an ice cream break. I enjoy every moment and notice how my body slowly recovers from the swimming injuries. After 254 km I treat myself to a pizza and look for a place to sleep. I am looking forward to the next days on the bike.
