This holiday season, it’s evident that Americans prioritize “experience gifts” over material possessions, and Rail Explorers® railbike tours offer a perfect blend of adventure and lasting memories for individuals of all ages and abilities.

As the premier railbike company in the nation, Rail Explorers boasts locations in Rhode Island, Cooperstown, and the Catskills, N.Y., Versailles, Ky., Boone, Iowa, and Amador County, Calif. The picturesque routes guide riders through stunning hills, railroad bridges, ranches, and even thoroughbred farms.

Mary Joy Lu, Rail Explorers CEO, emphasized the unique nature of each location, providing riders with views only accessible off the beaten path—on the railroad tracks. She noted that Rail Explorers’ experiences are inclusive, enabling a 70-year-old and a 7-year-old to participate and have fun together, thanks to pedal-assist bikes that make the tour enjoyable for everyone.

Rail Explorers’ railbikes are pedal-powered, equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, and feature the innovative REX Propulsion System—a custom-built electric motor setting the global standard for safety, design, and user-friendliness. This technology ensures that individuals of all ages and abilities, including those with visual or hearing impairments or different abilities, can partake in the tours. The commitment to inclusivity led to the development of a custom electric-pedal assistance system for uphill pedaling challenges and an all-steel-frame construction with no weight limit.

For those seeking the perfect gift, Rail Explorers offers gift cards that can be purchased for specific locations or any location, with the option of receiving them by mail or email. Additional information and gift card purchases are available at railexplorers.net/gifts. Tour schedules and bookings for the 2024 season will be released in early 2024, with prices varying between locations.

Since its inception in 2015, Rail Explorers has welcomed over 600,000 riders. The tours are open to the public and pet-friendly, providing a memorable and inclusive experience for all participants.
