Figgjo to Ålgård Railway Bikes

For something different, ride along the old railway 3 km each way, from Figgjo to Ålgård, on a special bike trolley called a Dresin. Remember to wave the red flag and honk your horn at road crossings!

pedalling down the line! You do need two strong adults for this to turn the bikes around at the end.

Kids may be more comfortable sitting in their own car seats in the box but this is not essential. They can easily kneel or sit, but remember the boxes may be a little wet - best to wear waterproof trousers.
