The railbike in Jeongseon is a new type of leisure sport that combines biking along a railway and scenic views. Railbikes are commonly found in the mountainous regions of Europe. The sport 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 railbikes (138 kilograms). Despite its large size, a railbike runs quite smoothly so it is sufficient 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 the shape of a grasshopper. The railbike starts in Gujeol-ri station and ends in Auraji Station. Ride at a slow speed of 15kph to enjoy the surrounding scenery. On the way back, you will return to Gujeol-ri on a free train for a comfortable ride with a view.
