VeloRail visit September 22nd 2021

In contrast to the poor weather of the last few days this particular Wednesday dawned bright, warm and sunny. There was a good turnout for the visit, most members arriving at midday for the picnic, then all of us assembled for the off from Cordesse-Igornay station to Manley station by velorail, described as a light rail vehicle, propelled by the muscular energy of the passengers by means of pedals.

We enjoyed our picnics in the grounds before climbing into the 4  “velorails” booked and set off on our 22km journey. The visit was a most enjoyable affair, unlike anything anyone had tried before,  passing though Gare de Barney and Gare de La Croisotte.

The convoy arrived at Gare de Manley safely and were able to have a chat while turning their velorail for the return journey. The return was much more to everyone’s liking as we sped down the slight incline and back to the starting point.

A grand time was had by all, no injuries or muscle strains were reported. A very enjoyable afternoon out was had by all! Thanks were given to Amanda for organising the event.
