Do I need to make a reservation?
No you don’t have to make a reservation but reserved seats have priority. Onsite tickets sales are limited to seat availability. We recommend making reservations in our busy summer months and for larger groups.Back to Index
Cancellation and Rain Policy.
Credit will be given for your future reservations if you cancel more than 24 hours before your scheduled ride. If you are tardy or the weather is bad there is no refund. Tours depart rain or shine. Please dress for the weather. We go rain or shine, unless safety becomes an issue.Back to Index
Is there a weight restriction?
There is a weight limit of 250 pounds per person. The design of our railriders is unable to handle anymore than 250 pounds per seat.Back to Index
Can I bring my dog/pet?
No, railriding is not safe for pets.Back to Index
What is the minimum/maximum number of people on a Railrider?
Each unit seats up to four people. We are capable of taking up to 38 people per departure. Seating is first come first serve. We make every effort to seat you with your party, let us know so that we can try to do that. Depending on how many guests are scheduled, you may be asked to share a unit with new friends or a guide. This is all part of the adventure.Back to Index
How strenuous is this activity? Are there hills?
Are there any age restrictions?
No there aren’t any age restrictions. Seats are adjustable for different heights. We have had babies to mid-eighty-year-olds ride the rails. If you are physically capable of sitting and part of a family or group then other group members can help you pedal if they are willing.Back to Index
How do babies and toddlers ride?
Babies and small toddlers can ride in a car seat (that you provide us) attached to a Railrider seat. Infants can also ride on their parent’s lap or in a front pack at no cost. However with larger babies and toddlers it is much more comfortable if they ride in a car seat next to you. Please arrive 40 minutes early if you choose to use a car seat and let our guides know so they can secure it on a railrider for you. Older toddlers, at the parents discretion, can ride without a car seat but may not be able to reach the peddles. Each person pedals independently.Back to Index
Are there guides that go with us on the trip?
Yes there will be two guides on every trip. One guide rides in the front and one guide rides in the back of the tour . Guides help with the five main road crossings, turn the railriders around, and help with any other issues that may arise.Back to Index
How long does it take and how far do we go?
It takes about two hours on average, depending on the group size. We pedal 6 miles to Tillamook and then turn around and pedal back 6 miles to Bay City. Round trip is about 12 miles.Back to Index
How do we turn around?
The guides use a platform to rotate to each railrider to reverse our direction. We travel back the same way we came.Back to Index
