21.06.2022, 6. day, 136 / 649 km, Lörrach

At the campsite we were recommended to visit a bakery in downtown Kehl for breakfast, and it turns out to be really good. The workers there are incredibly friendly. After breakfast we take a small bridge over the Rhine River directly to France, and get closer to the Rhone-Rhine Canal. It has numerous locks, and is relatively small and very idyllic. Sometimes to the left and sometimes to the right of the canal the bike trail that we ride on for 60km is mostly in good shape. Every once in a while the path goes through small towns, but we never find any ice cream shops. Many of the fields we pass were being irrigated by sprinklers, so we often have to ride on the street to avoid getting wet. The day is mostly sunny, and we were happy to have a tailwind. At Neuenburg we cross into Germany again. While enjoying some ice cream we decide to continue to the campground in Lörrach instead of stopping at the one in Bad Bellingen. The Lörrach campground is about 30km further, and we make it at 7pm (right before the reception closes).
We set up our tents quickly and go to the restaurant at the campground. We find a table inside with a power outlet and charge our devices. That turns out to be a good decision in more than one respect, because a thunderstorm starts as soon as we sit down. We will soon find out if our tents are actually waterproof.
It is supposed to rain the whole day tomorrow, but we only have to ride 30km to Bad Säckingen, where we have booked a hotel room. Tomorrow I will tell you why.
