Cycle Spaces

Cycling is not only good for mind and body but kinder to the environment, too.

So why not don your hi-vis jacket, dust off your helmet and pedal to your local station before jumping on a train for your onward journey.

If you want to take your bike on the train, then:

  • There’s space for two bikes on board each service, completely free of charge. Many of our newer trains have a space just for cycles, so look out for that as well. If the train is quiet, the Senior Conductor may allow more bikes on
  • Sorry, but full-size bikes cannot be taken on-board certain peak time trains
  • Nor can we take full-size bikes on any train arriving in London Euston between 07:00 and 09:59, or departing from London Euston between 16:00 and 18:59 from Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays)
  • However, folding cycles can be carried on any service, any time, no charge
  • If you do want to take your bike on the train, especially from our busier stations, it’s worth finding out times of our quieter services

Cycles on other trains

Plusbike gives you loads of cycling information across the UK, such as:

  • Cycle facilities and number of spaces at different stations
  • Cycle carriage rules by train company
  • Cycle reservations requirements (if any)

Cycle storage at the station

You can also leave your bike safely and securely at many local stations, but it’s worth double-checking first what bike storage facilities are available.
