The Newport Rail Explorers kicks off their 2021 season on the weekend of May 1st & 2nd. Rail Explorers offers an unforgettable scenic ride along historic Aquidneck Island and spectacular Narragansett Bay on custom built pedal-powered vehicles. The eco-friendly business is all about rail bikes and aims to provide an amazing journey using existing railroad tracks. Available from mid-April through October, the tour takes approximately 90 minutes.
Choose between two different tours: The Northern Ramble, a six-mile exploration of the historic railroad between Portsmouth and the Sakonnet River (a one-way tour), or the Southern Circuit, a six-mile round trip tour (3 miles out, 3 miles back) down towards Newport and back. All tours begin at One Alexander Road at Melville in Portsmouth, RI.
Rail Explorers are easy to pedal, the terrain is mostly flat, and the ride is relaxing and enjoyable. From couples young and old and groups of friends, to families of all ages and abilities, the pedal-powered explorers provide a smooth and comfortable adventure suitable for all.
Specialty tours are also available that include a Brunch Tour, Sunset Tour, Fireside Tour and Lantern Ride Tours. To learn more and to book a tour visit www.railexplorers.net/tours/rhode-island
