Riding the Rails

Riding the Rails

I went with Seattle Parks & Recreation down to the Shelton area and did something different today. I rode the rails!

What’s that, you ask? Well, an enterprising group of individuals built some rail cars, using seats from recumbent bikes and pedals so that people could ride them on an old railroad track. Each “car” holds four people with one in the back controlling the brake.

Since the seats recline, I had a hard time staying in the seat because I kept sliding.

We peddled for 6.5 miles before turning around and heading back, for a total of 13 miles.

Look, ma, no hands!

Going back took more effort since it was all uphill (gradual, but enough to get a workout).

It was a fun day…and, my legs were sore for two days afterward!
