Day 1 9\9\15
Arrived safely at Basel. On route had donation of £5 in ! Manchester airport and £10 in Basel airport. Problems then arose in Andermatt when as a result of no bus or taxi service we decided to unwrap our bikes to ride final 2 miles to hotel . Disaster Jim's bike wheel was buckled into a figure 8 .Luckily found a hotel in the town which blew our budget.

 

Day 2 10\9
Found a local cycle shop without facilities to repair but a very helpful lady directed Jim to a shop in Erstfeld. Completed the repair but at a cost 130 swiss francs. Meanwhile Ben went to the source of the Rhine involving a total 3 hour walk up to Lake Toma from Oberalppass
