The Secret Valley Explorers – Railbikes of the Colebrookdale Railroad is a nonprofit organization. While there may be other rail bike companies – we are unique because our mission ensures education, employment, inclusion, and accessibility.

Your donations provide employment opportunities for people on the Autism Spectrum – a population group that experiences an unemployment rate of more than 80%. We are proud to begin this unique project. Some members of our train crew – who will take you back to the train yard – are also on the Autism Spectrum. They, too, sincerely appreciate your support.

More – your donations provide us the opportunity to fund the 2nd Generation of railbikes. The first significant change includes the electrification of our speeder and our railbikes. Next season – the speeder will be quiet and clean! The railbikes will be equipped with electric motors to assist those who need that additional pedaling support. We are making biking accessible to everyone.

We are designing all new bikes – that are ADA compliant and fully accessible so that people of all sizes, ages, and abilities can bicycle with us. We will accommodate those with visual, physical, and mental disabilities such that all people can bicycle – many for the very first time in their lives. Your ticket purchase will make this possible.
