How do you fancy seeing the P-O (or at least part of it) from a railroad track on a  foot pumped handcart?

From 19th May, you will be able to pedal from Axat station on the Red Train track. TPCF offers this new activity so you can enjoy stunning scenery at your own pace.

The vélorail is a cyclo-draisine or handcar which two people can pedal at the front with up to 2 adults or 3 children enjoying the ride in the back seat.

Et ne vous inquiétez pas. You won’t run the risk of bumping into a train, red or any other colour, as everything is carefully organised to avoid that. Phew!

There are two possible routes from Axat station. The ‘parcours des Radeliers’ heads towards Saint-Martin-Lys for a 1 hour round trip and for those up for a bit more of a challenge, the ‘parcours des Bûcherons’ takes you towards the Col de Campérié, for a 2 hour round trip.

And if the thought of working up a sweat pedalling along a railway track just isn’t your tasse de thé, there are also four of these vélorails with electric assistance, so you can pretend that you’re doing all the hard work with a minimum of effort!

Sounds like fun?
