What a wonderful few hours. So much fun pedalling along the old railway line into the french countryside. Loved every minute of it

We took this trip with 2 families with young children. The carts have seats for the little ones. The bicycle type seats weren’t very comfortable and it was a tough peddle but well worth the exercise.

This was so much fun! We booked the 6pm slot on a cool day and I'm so glad we did. Riding in 36 degrees Celsius a few days before would have been horrendous. You choose your velo-rail carts at the start and follow the people...More

A great couple of hours out with our 7 and 6 year old although our 6 year old was just a bit too small to peddle. Definitely fun to do on a cooler day. 7 kms each way cycling.

This was a great few hours to spend on a cooler day. I must add do not go on a warm day as I feel it may compromise your health. Some of these reviews paint this activity in a bad light. I have no idea...More

At 26 euros for 2 hours fun for the whole family this is an excellent way to spend an afternoon. Harder work than it looks on the outward travel but luckily a steady slope back to the station. Kids loved operating the level crossings.

You must book in advance for the Velo-Rail as it's very busy but well worth the effort. We only did the 7km - 2 hour trip (thankfully) The facilities at the booking office are a little basic, there seemed to be a constant queue for...More

This was recommended to us last year, but was booked up when we looked. This year we booked some weeks ahead, although I noticed later that there were spaces still. It's not a wet weather activity, but the track is mostly in woodland, so does...More

Booked this online which was easy to do for the following morning (10am) and was surprised how busy it was. Chose an overcast day which was ideal. The whole journey at peak time takes 2 hours, the outward journey is the hardest as it's slightly...More
