A few months ago while internet surfing, I discovered the sport of railbiking. If you've never heard of it, I'm not terribly surprised. I certainly hadn't.
I'd describe it, but I think this picture describes it much better.
Almost all of the websites I could find were either terribly out of date or were hocking some bizarre 4 wheeled contraption.
So have any of you ever done this before? Live near abandoned railroad track? Know where some are?
I'd really love to try this out, (maybe even build one) except all the tracks around here are very much in use, and as one of the only websites about it I could find states, "It only takes one train to ruin your whole day."
(Mods, if you think this totally doesn't belong here, go ahead and move it. I would have put it in alt/culture, only no one would ever see it.)
