Get fit on this exciting pedal powered adventure!
Railtrack Riders are four-wheeled, lightweight vehicles that are powered by foot pedals. Part of Forestry Tasmania’s Maydena Adventure Hub, the Rail Track Riders take you on a tour of the Derwent Valley railway line from the old Maydena yard toward Florentine.
Stop along the journey to view the fantastic scenery and items of interest from Maydena’s forest industry history.
Inspired by successful US, Canadian, Swedish and German pedal powered vehicles that make the most out of unused rail infrastructure, Railtrack Riders was established by the Maydena Community Association Inc in 2009. The community has turned the Railtrack Riders concept into a self supporting business venture.
In 2011, approximately 2000 visitors enjoyed travelling on the Railtrack Riders on this 2.5 kilometre section of non-operational rail corridor.
