Introduction : The rail bike in Jeongseon is a new type of leisure sports that combines biking along a railway and scenic views. Rail bikes are commonly found in the mountainous regions of Europe. This actitivity makes use of an abandoned railway track that runs from Jeongseon's Auraji to Gujeol-ri. The total track is 7.2 kilometers long and is a continuous descent that is easy to ride along clean valley waters and crimson red foliage.There are 2-person (110 kilograms) and 4-person rail bikes (138 kilograms). Despite its large size, the rail bikes run quite smoothly enough for one person to pedal a 4-person railbike at speeds of 10 to 30 kilometers per hour.
At the boarding area in Gujeol-ri Station, there is a café named A Grasshopper’s Dream. Housed in a train, the café is designed in the shape of a grasshopper. The rail bike's path starts from Gujeol-ri Station and ends at Auraji Station. Ride at a slow speed of 15 kph to enjoy the surrounding scenery. Visitors can conveniently return back to Gujeol-ri on a free train.
