Railcyclers: a family outing with a twist

Here’s a way to enjoy a scenic bike ride, without the bike: the newly re-opened RailCyclers provides foot-pedaled, open-air “railcycle” tours along the historic Belfast & Moosehead Lake Railroad. Riding railcycles is a low-impact, quiet, non-polluting activity, and a great way to get in shape. They are basically a tandem single speed pedal bike built specifically for the rails.

Railcycle guides are trained in rail operations and accompany each group. They assure safe crossing of public roadways and assist in turning the cycles at the half-way point for the trip back to Belfast. Pedalers must be at least 10 years old.

RailCyclers operates out of City Point Station located at 13 Oak Hill Road in Belfast, Maine. Railcycling is a reservation-only event and seating is limited, so be sure to book your tickets online in advance. Tickets cost $30 for two seats, or you can reserve the single unused seat next to the guide for $15. For more information: http://railcyclers.com/portal/index.php
