#2. THE RAIL BIKE

Prev Next

The golden age of railways is long gone, but some abandoned railroad tracks are having a second life as pedestrian and bike paths.

His first prototype derailed and crashed when he hit about 16 miles per hour, but his newer design is much safer (although it still experiences problems at rail switches).
