Rails-to-Trails Conservancy

Railway grades make for ideal, easy going and social cycling, particularly well suited to family outings and those new to pedal power.

The Washington DC-based¬†Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is a non-profit organisation, with a mission ‘to create a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors to build healthier places for healthier people.’

There are more than 21,000 miles of these rail trails in the USA, with another 9,000 miles waiting to be converted.
