Vélo rail is a great half day out. Vélo rail is a metal truck to which two bicycles have been attached along with 3 passenger seats.
You pedal along an abandoned railway track between Confolens and Manot or Roumazieres and Manot and back again, passing over the “Viaduc de Laplaud”, a 6 arch viaduct.
The journey is about 15km round trip and you are given 2.5 hours to complete it. Only small inclines encountered! Great fun for everyone, especially kids.
Pre-booking advisable in high season as you are sent off at pre-set times and the attraction is popular. Cost is 25 per truck for 5 people for 2.5 hours. Refreshments available at half-way point. * Guests of registered tourist accommodation receive discount vouchers for this activity.
