We are a small company which I decided to start based on an idea I came across in July 2017. I remember thinking that this would be something I would enjoy doing and thought others would as well. After a lot of investigation and planning I decided to move ahead with starting a business to run Rail-Bike tours in the New England area.
The biggest challenge was to find a stretch of abandoned railroad tracks where the tracks haven't been taken up to form a rail trail. Fortunately, I found a stretch which was still intact. After months of negotiating with the track owners and the City, we reached an agreement for usage of the tracks.
Following almost two years in the making, we opened for business in July 2019.
As a new business we hope to provide the public with a safe enjoyable tourist activity which is both unique and different. It is our hope that after taking a Rail-Bike tour with us, people will visit the local area restaurants and stores. You are also welcome to head down the road to Sewalls Falls Recreational Area and do some exploring and hike the trails available there.
Come join us for a Rail-Bike tour on the last remaining section of the Northern Railroad track built in 1846. Our tour covers from just south of 2nd Street in Concord NH to Commercial Street in Boscawen NH. Truly a unique opportunity to pedal our custom made four wheel Rail-Bikes on the railroad tracks. The route will take you through some woods, farm lands and along the Merrimack River. As you travel along these tracks you can enjoy the scenery, tranquil river views and fresh air while getting in a little exercise. The trip includes a 2.4 mile round trip southern leg and a 4 mile round trip northern leg. We have two turn-around points where you get to stretch your legs and enjoy the scenery along the Merrimack River. You also get a chance to visit the Hannah Dustin Memorial Statue as a destination on our tour.
Come enjoy a scenic railroad ride by railbiking on the train tracks. You get to enjoy an outside recreational activity which allows you to ride the rails by pedaling a rail bike. Truly a different form of bicycling a rail trail.
