Cycle a rail-bike – a unique experience on Sweden’s oldest narrow-gauge railway

Cycle a rail-bike – a unique experience on Sweden’s oldest narrow-gauge railway

Pedal away from the starting point just like a train. The ride goes through a beautiful agricultural landscape, passing several large farms on the way, and after about 4 km (2.5 miles) crossing the private “Aska wood railway”. Keep an eye out for birds as the area is famous for the variety of species that can be seen there.

The terminus at Fågelsta will be reached after 8 km (5 miles). If you do not want to cycle that far, you can turn the rail-bike around at any time and cycle back. On the return journey, the view towards Vadstena and over lake Vättern is breath taking.

It is a wonderful feeling to glide over the tracks with the rail-bike., enjoying the low friction between the wheel and rail. It’s as easy as cycling.

You travel at your own pace and take breaks whenever you want. Feel free to bring a picnic and stop at a rest area along the route.

2021’s season has come to a close, and the rail-bikes are now parked away in the garage awaiting next spring. Welcome!
