What is Railbiking?

Railbiking with Revolution Rail Co. is a fun excursion activity that allows riders to ride the railroad tracks under their own power and explore the outside in a brand new way!

How difficult is it?

Railbiking is accessible for nearly all ages and ability levels and is best enjoyed at a leisurely pace.

Restrictions

There is a 300 lbs weight limit per rider per seat.

There is no minimum age requirement.

  • Infants can ride with mom or dad in a front-mounted child carrier (like a Baby Bjorn).

  • Toddlers can ride in a front-mounted child carrier also, but if they can sit up on their own and hold their heads up, we have 5-point harnesses for them and they can ride along in their own seat.

  • Kids age 4 and up can ride in their own seats, using our seat belts.

  • Loose lap babies are not allowed.

Cancellations

Riders may cancel for a full refund at any time up to 72 hours prior to scheduled departure. You may cancel by sending us an email or by calling us at 518-251-2345.

If we cancel for dangerous weather conditions (see below), riders will receive a full refund as well.

Rainy Days

There's an old saying that there's no such thing as bad weather, only insufficient preparation. Rainy days are a fact of life everywhere and the Jersey Shore is no different - one just needs to be prepared.

We run rain or shine, unless dangerous weather conditions are occurring or imminent, based on the judgment of tour guides at the time of the trip. Whenever possible, we try to wait out any questionable weather (which does not mean rain!)
