Adirondack Railroad to offer six-mile Rail Bike Adventures starting May 8th at Thendara Station

Adirondack Railroad Rail Bike tickets are going on sale March 1st with the season starting May 8th.  Adirondack Rail Bikes are a four seat pedal powered vehicle that are designed to allow you to ride and explore sections of the track that are closed off to other traffic, enjoying the beauty of the Adirondacks at a more leisurely pace. Rail bikes are proudly manufactured right here in Utica, NY and more are being added for the 2021 season. The total ride is approximately one and a half to two hours long and pricing can be found on our website

“Rail bikes are great way to explore the Adirondack Mountains as you pedal along the scenic rails, three miles north of the Thendara station, to a turn around point where you can stop for a break before you turn around and head back to the station,” says Bill Branson, President ASR Board of Directors

Since 1992, The Adirondack Railway Preservation Society (ARPS) that operates the Adirondack Railroad has built a successful tourist attraction, operating on track owned by the State of New York, a former New York Central line located in upstate New York and the Adirondack region.

The Adirondack Railway Preservation Society is a volunteer-based organization. Together with our staff, volunteers have donated approximately 300,000 hours to protect our historic railway and enrich the Adirondack experience for tourists and residents of our region.
