Many European trains now have onboard bicycle spaces where you can store your bike. And those that don’t often allow bicycles in bike bags. Read up on what to expect in the European routes and trains sections of this site.
Booking a bike space
Bike spaces on many trains can be booked with Rail Europe’s call centre or at the Rail Europe Travel Centre in London before you go. Alternatively, why not simply rent a bike when you arrive in the cities you plan to explore? All major cities have bike rental schemes and often you can pick bikes up and drop them off at points across the city.
