The Adventure : 

Designed for comfort, the RailBike is your personal time machine carrying you through tunnels and over bridges steeped in history. Experience the first 16km of the Forgotten World Railway before stopping for a light snack and returning to the starting point. You will travel through five tunnels including the longest tunnel at 1.5km in length plus three beautiful hand built brick tunnels.  Cruise through stunning hill country farms and native bush frosted in winter glory. 

No previous cycling experience required, but you’ll need some energy to apply pedal to metal. You will arrive back feeling a real sense of accomplishment!
