Bikes can be brought as hand luggage onto all trains if they are folded or dismantled and placed in a bike cover (max. 120 x 90cm). For unfolded bikes there are other options available, depending on the railway company.
There are 4 spaces for assembled bikes on each train. You can book a space for you bike but you must do so at the same time as your regular ticket. The cost of a bike space is around £10. Alternatively, you can carry your bike in a bag free of charge if it is not bigger than120x90cm.
