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.

Travelling with a Bike Information

Each of our trains include a free, designated bicycle storage area. As there are a limited number of spaces available, passengers wishing to carry a bicycle must reserve a space in advance and as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
a) When you are purchasing tickets online or via the Hull Trains app, an option can be selected to reserve a bicycle space. On our website, you can add a bike reservation at the time of choosing your seat preferences.
b) Any staffed station ticket office can provide bicycle reservations.

Reservations are free and can be made up to the day before travel.
Once you have reserved a space for your bike, speak to a member of our on board team who will direct you to our designated bike storage area. Bikes must remain in the designated storage areas until you depart the service, not blocking any doors or aisles.
Bikes can only be brought on board if a reservation has been made prior to travel. If you do not have a bike reservation, you may be advised to store your bike at the station. Find out which stations have bicycle storage here. If there is an available cycle space, carriage will be at the On Board Managers discretion.
We are unable to carry tandem bicycles, tricycles or other oversized bikes including powered vehicles, eg: trailers and motorcycles.

Folding bikes with a maximum 20-inch wheel can be carried as luggage without any restriction providing you fold it before boarding and keep it folded until leaving the train.
