For bicyclists and non-bicyclists alike! A s seen on KING-TV's Northwest Backroads, Sunday April 23, 2000 A Brief History of Railbiking R esearch shows that railbiking has been around nearly as long as railroads and bicycles. A railbike patent in the U.S. Patent Office database is dated 1869. Scores of patents for railbike systems were filed between 1880 and 1920 around the world. R ailbikes were once used by railroad companies for track checking, moving workers at work sites as well as going for assistance when the locomotives broke down. Telegraph companies also used railbikes to maintain telegraph lines that often followed railways. In the Midwest and other regions with sufficient winds, workers using railbikes sometimes put up sails to power them along the tracks. L ike its contemporary, the bicycle, railbike design went into decline with the advent of the internal combustion engine and the automobile. A few independently minded designers and tinkerers kept the concept alive for the last 90 years and today there is a resurgence of interest in railbiking.

Business Description:
Railbike International is an association of railbike enthusiasts organized to promote safe and legal railbiking on abandoned rails.
Also available is the quarterly Railbike International Messenger (R.I.M.) newsletter ($16./year) and various other railbike publications, plans and abandoned railroad maps. Email us your mailing address or call 1-415-453-8886 for more information. Let me know what you think about my page. Send mail by clicking here Railbiking is not new. In 1908 Sears and Roebuck offered a railbike attachment in its catalog designed to adapt the common bicycle for railbike use. In the late 1800's several railbike models were available commercially and were used by the general public as well as by telegraph and railroad company employees.
Today railbiking is alive and well but has been called the world's slowest growing sport. In Europe, dozens of locations offer railbikes for rent on abandoned track now dedicated to recreational railbike use.
One of the goals of Railbike International is to establish dedicated railbike facilities in the United States similar to those in Europe.

The Folding Society gets a mention on this web page devoted to last years velocipede (railbike) rally held at Hampton Loade station on the Severn Valley Railway in the UK. Looks like the velocipedes themselves also qualify since their outriggers seem to fold in.
Readers with long memories may recall that the London Underground apparently used an f-frame Moulton converted to a rail bike. posted by Paul Evans at 7:12 PM

That last picture is insane!
They're all from this site:
The thing I have to askis it legal? Is it something people can only do on rails that never have trains on them, and even then, is there some sort of legal issue or something based out of sue-happy America?

In Indiana, railroads are everywhere. That's how a state more known for auto racing got the nickname "Crossroads of America." It may keep the name from the highways, but it originated from trains.

Railbiking anyone?
Google sponsored links
document.write(''); Deamer A few months ago while internet surfing, I discovered the sport of railbiking. If you've never heard of it, I'm not terribly surprised. I certainly hadn't.
I'd describe it, but I think this picture describes it much better.
Almost all of the websites I could find were either terribly out of date or were hocking some bizarre 4 wheeled contraption.
So have any of you ever done this before? Live near abandoned railroad track? Know where some are?
I'd really love to try this out, (maybe even build one) except all the tracks around here are very much in use, and as one of the only websites about it I could find states, "It only takes one train to ruin your whole day."
(Mods, if you think this totally doesn't belong here, go ahead and move it. I would have put it in alt/culture, only no one would ever see it.)

Railbiking ongoing tinkering and exploring, begun 2004 A quiet and humble underground of home-spun inventors have been experimenting with different ways to put a bicycle on an abandoned railroad for years, and I am merely an upstart with a lot to learn. Many elements of this project are in line with the same motivations behind much of my other work- that of blurring the lines between what is allowed and what is illicit in terms of property, borders, and land use. This design, made from an old three-speed cruiser that my friend and I found on the street in front of our house, uses a lifting wheel-guide and outrigger attachment designed by Richard Bentley . Much of the work on the bicycle itself was done at Free Ride! , a bike recycling collective in Pittsburgh with which I am a coordinator.
