Have you been hearing about Revolution Rail, wanting to give it a try, but didn’t know what to expect? Well, I tried it a few months ago and let me tell you what it was like!

Revolution Rail takes the unused rails up in North Creek and creates a really great outdoor experience for 2-4. Each tour takes about two hours and is 6 miles of rail-biking roundtrip. Halfway through the trip, you stop by a beautiful creek to get off the bikes so the team can turn them around. There’s also a beautiful bridge point where they’ll take your picture for a wonderful memory.

They have four trips each day (Thursday-Monday starting after Labor Day weekend): 10:30am, 12:30am, 2:30pm, and 4:30pm. There is no age limit, and the weight limit is 300lbs. Toddlers can ride in either their front-mounted child carrier, or a 5-point harness that RevRail can offer.

They have a basket on each car to hold your things. Depending on the weather, you should bring an umbrella/raincoat, bug spray, sunscreen, your camera, and a snack wouldn’t hurt either.

What I really liked about the experience is that you really get some time with the people in your car. They recommend you keep at least a football field’s length of space between you and the car in front of you so it’s not like you’re all back-to-back. It really felt like my Mom and I were out there by ourselves, but obviously we weren’t. Also, though the whole way to the half-way point is uphill, it really wasn’t that bad. Every so often we could feel that we had to peddle a little harder but none of it was particularly strenuous. That also meant that everything on the way back was down hill, which was a ton of fun!

A two-person car is $80 and a four-person car is $140. Though it was beautiful in the summer, I may book another trip for the fall to see the beautiful foliage! Check out my pictures and video, you won’t be disappointed with your experience!

Apologies on being behind on my blog lately. I had a great run (or lack of run, actually) when I sprained my ankle. All I had to do was lay on my couch and catch up on my blog which was awesome. Then, I recovered […]
