You can travel with your bicycle on board one of our trains wherever you are heading. As there are a limited number of spaces, passengers must reserve a bike space in advance. This can be done online at the time of booking your ticket - simply add a bike reservation when reserving your seats. You can also reserve a bike space for free at the station. You must book a bike space in advance as storage is limited and bikes cannot be kept in the areas by the doors. 

Folding bikes with a maximum 20-inch wheel can be carried as luggage without any restriction; please make sure you fold it before boarding. We are unable to carry tandem bicycles or other oversized cycles, eg: with attached trailers. Please note, e-scooters are not permitted on board.

e-bikes are permitted on board our trains but must not be charged whilst on board and must fit the same size parameters as a regular push cycle. All bikes, whether an e-bike or standard bike must be able to be stowed in the bike racks so they take only one bike space. The maximum dimensions for this is 180cm height, 18cm frame width, 5.5cm tyre width. Cycles outside of these sizes cannot be carried.
