Literally Riding the Rails, a Backpacking Adventure

Rails to trails are awesome. Smooth, steady grades with beautiful, largely untouched terrain, but there are far more abandoned rails than rail to trail projects. I was just thinking the other day, wouldn’t it be fun to build a bike capable of just riding the rail? Turns out someone beat me to it.

You’ve never heard of a choose your own adventure story quite like this—where personal and professional passions are combined to create a whole new way to explore the outdoors. Smartwool presents Riding the Rails, a short film about one man’s drive, his family’s love for the outdoors, and how their railroad-ready bikes allow them to access the most secluded wild places in the Northeastern United States. #gofarfeelgood
