Though it’s not the first vehicle designed to ride on abandoned railroad tracks, the RailRunner is certainly the best looking. Using the power of pedaling, this two-seat vehicle can take you up and down town. Need more room? A 4-seat version is indeed available.
The wheels closely resemble Skyway Tuff II wheels that were used on many BMX bikes back in the 1980s, so I’m assuming they can take some abuse. Slowly, but surely, a few groups of Railriders are meeting up throughout the US to fly down tracks and enjoy the rush. I’d love to give it a try, though I’d be scared shitless if a train horn was heard in the distance.
