My partner, dog and I arrived at Rando Rail on a Sunday morning. I was pleased that dogs were allowed but we didn't realize two people are required to cycle for the rail cart to move optimally. This left our dog in the unsecured hammock...More

Brilliant fun cycling mini railway carriages through beautiful woodland. We were a group aged from teens to 70's and all thoroughly enjoyed this. Would recommend.
