If you’re looking for more entertainment in your exercise then Velo-Rail may just be the ideal thing for you. The Velo-Rail is a disused railway line located in the Charente-Limousin where you cycle specially adapted trolleys through the Vienne countryside. Each Velo-Rail can take 2 peddlers and 3 passengers and if you are in a group your trolleys can be linked so you can all enjoy the experience. There are two main routes, Roumazieres to Manot or Confolens to Manot return. You can add even more fun to your journey by taking along a picnic and dig in during the stop in Manot. Old, powered railway cars are also being restored for new rides from Confolens, and it is hoped that the track from Cofolens can be further extended.
