I couldn't help suspecting that this was mostly for families... However four oldies managed it as well. I admit it is a bit of a struggle heading west up the hill but the... read more

Brilliant fun cycling mini railway carriages through beautiful woodland. We were a group aged from teens to 70's and all thoroughly enjoyed this. Would recommend.

I'd seen a leaflet for Rando Rail, Lumbres a couple of years ago, but only managed to get there last week. Didn't know quite how it worked, but had a good idea. You pedal the rail "truck" up a gradient of 18% max (at the top), turn your truck on a turntable, and come rolling down....fast! 5km up, and of... More

My wife and me took our grandchildren, aged 12, 7 and 2 on this ride and they (and we) thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The ride is basically a a large push bike on an old train track. There are two routes, the route we took travels uphill for around 5km, turn around at the top and freewheel the 5km downhill.... More

This attraction was on our list of things to consider whilst on a recent 4 day break in Pas-de-Calais but if you go by the headline, you certainly won't find this in St Omer; Nielles-les-Blequin is a tiny place in the sticks approx 10 miles west of St Omer. Travelling on the Rando Rail is done in hourly start-times between... More

I couldn't help suspecting that this was mostly for families... However four oldies managed it as well. I admit it is a bit of a struggle heading west up the hill but the countryside is pretty (if a bit obscured by trees) and the run back down the hill exhilerating. Luckily we were alone i.e. had no youthful competition pressing... More

We had an excellent afternoon's fun at Rando Rail. Nice countryside to view and my kids (5 and 3) had a great time. The kids sit in a hammock type seat inbetween the adults so are nice and safe even when you are up to 20-25 mph (Although Health & Safety would never allow it in the UK!) You also... More

A great morning (or afternoon) for people of all ages - and a way to burn off a few of those excess holiday calories. Set in acres of rolling French countryside, Rando Rail consists of two distinct halves - an hour long pedal up a consistent slope following by a half-hour roller coaster ride back down hill. It may not... More

Visited Rando rail whilst staying in Le Touquet, it was about a 40min drive. Surrounding countryside is beautiful and very peaceful. The attraction is set on a disused railway line, you pedal a platform along the track, 2 people can pedal at the same time, the kids can sit on seats behind the pedelers. Two route options are available, 5km... More

We were staying in France for a week and found a leaflet adviertising this day out, as the weather was ok we thought we'd give it a go. I don't know where to begin! You get into a four person pedal cart which you have to pedal uphill for what seems like an eternity! I consider myself "middle-of-the-road" fit but... More
