The bikes will run 6.2 miles up and back (12.5 miles total) on the rails of the historic Buffalo Creek & Gauley Railroad line that ran along Buffalo Creek from Dundon to Widen. Trey Corwell of Rail Explorers USA said, “Our bikes are almost 95% assembled and they will be ready for everyone on June 8!”  Invitations have gone out to more than 150,000 people, from the Governor’s office and the Department  of Tourism, to county commissioners and local government officials. “Trey added, “It’s a huge investment in our community and I can’t wait to share it with the world!”
