Exploring the rails with Rail Bike Adventures!

Enjoy the beauty and history of New Hampshire’s beautiful Lakes Region as you and your family or friends pedal our custom-made rail bikes along a rail line that dates back to 1848. Your 5-mile round-trip rail bike adventure will begin and end at the historic Laconia Railroad Station in Veterans Square which opened in 1892 and operated until in the late 1960’s.

Our route takes you past the site of the former Laconia Car Company which built rail cars from 1844 to 1928, then over a trestle bridge crossing the Winnipesaukee River and Durkee Brook before reaching the shore of Lake Winnisquam – New Hampshire’s 4th largest lake. The terrain you’ll cover is primarily flat and your excursion is both relaxing & enjoyable for most everyone.
