Travelling with a bike

If you are travelling with a bike, you can either park it securely at a station with cycle storage facilities or take it on the train for free. For further information check out the information below or download our Cycle Policy.

Park your bike securely at the station

  • We provide bike racks at all of our stations, and most are protected with CCTV. The full list of facilities available at each station is included in our  Cycle Policy

  • Bikes are left at your own risk, and valuables, including lights and pumps, should be taken with you

  • Bicycles that are left in other areas pose a risk to station users and staff and may be removed without warning

  • We kindly ask that you don't ride within the station itself - save it for those cycle paths!

Top tips for taking a bike on the train

  • If you own a folding bike then you don’t need to book a space, simply fold your bike down and store it in the standard luggage areas, between the seats or in one of the vestibules, taking care not to obstruct the doors. 

  • We have space for up to two bikes on each of our trains. Call 0345 600 1671 to reserve a space for your bike at least 24 hours before you plan to travel

  • In line with the National Rail Conditions of Travel, at exceptionally busy times, bikes may not be allowed on board

  • The bike storage area is clearly marked on the outside of the train, but if you can’t find it ask a member of our staff for assistance
