Rail Explorers, featuring two- and four-seat rail bikes and operating only on railroad tracks that are free of train traffic, will begin its sea- son on Saturday, May 11, and run through Oct. 31. "It's a great way to connect with friends and loved ones without the distraction of technology," Rail Explorers CEO and Founder Mary Joy Lu, of Middletown, told The Valley Breeze.

The Rhode Island division, which began in 2017, is presented by the Newport and Narragansett Bay Railroad. Since it started, 43,000 riders have taken tours in R.I., said Mark Stenning, of Newport, the director of business development for Rail Explorers. "It's been very well-received," he told The Breeze.
