Travelling with a bike

Park your bike securely at the station

Travelling with a bike? You have two options when it comes to onward travel. Park it securely at a station with cycle storage facilities or take it on the train for free. All you need to do is call 0345 600 1671 to book a space for it at least 24 hours before you travel.

Top tips for taking a bike on the train

  • 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

  • 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.

  • We provide bike racks at all of our stations, and most are protected with CCTV

  • 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
