A big bonus that the whole ride is down hill! It was our first bike adventure as a family. Beautiful surroundings.

I read a lot of reviews, and found the ride much less daunting than people suggested. I think any child who can ride a bike in a straight line could do this ride. Bring a good light, water, picnic, and helmet. I bought a good...More

Breath taking views as you ride a bike down an abandoned railway. Experience riding through a mile long tunnel, stopping a learning about the historic route. Bring a camera and a picnic for lifelong memories!

Hi, We are visiting the area in late August from the UK and want to know if you have to rent bikes and other equipment in advance or just turn up on the day. We will be staying nearby at Wallace having travelled from Seattle by car. Any advice would be appreciated
