    Day 56 - Schaffhausen to Basel, 71 miles

    June 10, 2016 in Switzerland

    After a mixed nights sleep last night, turned out my hotels bar was a rock bar which you could hear throughtout the hotel until the early hours, I was up early to crack on to Basel in the sunshine.

    Following VeloRoute 15 along the Rhine it was an easy navigational day as the route is well signposted and uses a mix of roads and bike paths. Not the most interesting ride, few nice villages but majority of time was spent away from the river avoiding the heavy industry along the Rhine with not much to see. Good ride though and good few miles done.

    First night of the Euros this evening and headed to a local Swiss bar called 'Flanagans' to watch the opening game. Not surprisingly got chatting to a Irish guy called John O'Shea who was visiting his daughter in Basel. Without doubt one of the most fascinating people I've ever met. An ex sport journalist turned humanitarian who'd raised nearly a billion euros for the third world though his charity and shortlisted in Irelands top 40 greatest ever person list. A great guy with great stories but also very interested in my trip we agreed to meet for the Ireland rugby match tomorrow.

    After a long day on the bike and a big day in the pub planned tomorrow to watch the football and rugby it was time to get some rest.

    Day 57 - Basel

    June 11, 2016 in Switzerland

    3 rugby matches including England vs Australia, 3 football matches including Switzerland and Englands opening Euros games and sport on in the pub from 12 to 12 there was only one plan today.

    Great start watching England smash the Aussies in their own back yard with few other English guys and and aussies for good measure. Then straight into Switzerland vs Albania where it appears there are more Albanians in Basel then Swiss which led to a great atmosphere in the streets (no violence here!). Was then time to meet up with a very happy John to watch Ireland beat South Africa in their own back yard for the first time. What could possibly gone wrong with just England to play...

    Luckily Russia scoring their injury time equaliser and the trouble in the crowd that came with it is a bit of a blur for me. Hopefully better against Wales on Thursday.

    Great day, wallet is a fair bit lighter with Swiss beer prices but well worth it. Going to be interesting in the bike tomorrow.
