Bugey Railbikes – something different and affordable for the whole family!

#VelosRailsduBugey #FamilyFun #FasterFaster!
Are you looking for a new and fun way to discover the beautiful Bugey landscape? Do you fancy riding a really cool, unique bike along the tracks of a choo choo train? Well, Vélos Rails du Bugey has the answer! So hold on tight for a railbike adventure!

A unique journey through nature along the railway tracks!

In Ain, just over an hour’s drive from Lyon, Geneva and Annecy and a stone’s throw from Bugey’s giant, Grand Colombier Mountain, Bugey Railbikes offer a really unusual experience along the former railway line which used to link Bugey and Dauphiné!

All of the bikes are fitted with a good set of brakes, ensuring the activity is perfectly safe, so what are you waiting for? Climb aboard, get comfortable and set off at your own rhythm, enjoying the ease and originality of the ride!

There are various bikes to choose from, and the Baby Train allows the little ones to pedal too, it really is child’s play! You can even attach a baby car seat. The bikes are spacious, too, so don’t forget your cool box and picnic basket!

A 2.5km-long track, for the enjoyment of young and old alike!

And we’re off! A round trip of Bugey, from Pugieu to Virieu-le-Grand and back again, as it’s easy to change direction at either end.

A fun activity for the whole family and for less than 20€?! You’ll be sure to tell your friends and family all about it afterwards! But you must book ahead if you want to have a go on the railbikes! Bon voyage!
