Can I pass a slower rider in front of me during the Desert Railbike Ride and Train Ride?

A beautiful day in the desert. This was my second visit to Rail Explorers. I loved the first trip, & brought my family of 5 adults back with me, but this was disappointing. The added electric motor made the experience a huge let down

Friendly and helpful fun staff! Loved the trip every minute! We are in our mid 70's, and got a slight case of rubber legs at the end where the tracks go uphill, but we just went a little slower than most.

I recently moved to Henderson and this has been on my list of things to do, it was a very fun couple of hours. The staff is super attentive, the ride on the rails is a blast, and the scenery is breathtaking.
