The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.

The railcars have the right of way at track crossings, just like regular trains. At the end of the line, the railcars are turned around on a special section of track that rotates, so they don't have to be lifted. Here's a video of the trip:
