This Unique Rail Biking Experience In Colorado Belongs On Your Bucket List
Have you ever heard of rail biking (or tried it yourself)? As the name suggests, it consists of riding a bike along an old railroad line, which may seem strange but is actually incredibly fun and exhilarating! Are you ready to try it for yourself? If so, follow us to beautiful South Fork, Colorado:
Welcome to Revolution Rail!
Beginning at the old South Fork Station, your Revolution Rail adventure starts with a safety briefing and instruction, and then it is time to hop on your bike and hit the rails.
Featuring double and quadruple rail bikes, each excursion includes your bike, a tour guide, and 6 miles (out and back) of jaw-dropping landscapes a la dramatic vistas, forests, and the Rio Grande River.
While the ride is known for being fun and stunning, it is also historical, as the bikes run along the deserted Denver and Rio Grande Railroad line, which was in operation from 1870 to 1992 and boasted the highest mainline rail line in the country.
Please note: Rail biking is deemed accessible for nearly all ability levels and ages.
In addition to the standard 6-mile rail biking excursion, Revolution Rail offers an exciting pedals-to-paddle package complete with rail biking along the Rio Grande PLUS rafting on the river!
Pedals to Paddle is only available on certain weekday trips.
