Cycle-touring, Expeditions, Adventures, Major cycle routes NOT LeJoG (see other special board)
We are planning a trip to Geneva this summer, down the Rhine past Basel to Waldshutt, then the Aare and the R5 to Geneva. Has anyone done the Swiss section of this route? Is there a (cheap) map ... (all I have been able to find on-line is a pretty expensive guide-book).
I'm thinking that the section isn't that long, so do I really need a map or is the signage good enough? The nice thing about a map though, is planning where to stop for the night, so can you recommend any good campsites along the route.
Thanks for your advice

I've done this route years ago. The signage of the Swiss cycle-routes is almost impeccable. So you don't need the expensive guides for that.
I remember this campsite
as a very nice one.
Please, excuse my English. I'm Dutch.

you can download + print maps for free from the Veloland website - zoom in and out, move around, find stuff and routes you were unaware of - its in English as well as German/French/Italian if only we had something like this in the UK! http://www.veloland.ch/en/cycling-in-switzerland.html
Convention? what's that then?
