Train Operators encourage the integrated use of cycles and trains - two convenient and environmentally friendly forms of transport. However, please note that some train companies have restrictions on the services and times that accompanied cycles may be carried on trains, especially at peak times. You can find details of cycle policies and restrictions on our train companies page - just select the train company you're travelling with and look at the 'services' section.

General points about travelling with bicycles

  • If a cycle reservation is required, please make your reservation as far in advance as possible
  • Cycles are not carried during periods of restriction, check our train company pages for details

  • Cycles are carried at owner’s risk (see National Rail Conditions of Carriage)

Engineering work and bicycles

Engineering work may affect train services, and please be aware that non-folding bicycles are not allowed on rail replacement bus services at any time. Folding bicycles are accepted if fully folded.
