Travelling with bikes

If you’re travelling on a larger High Speed Train, you must book your bike on in advance. This applies even for short journeys. You can do this as part of the normal online ticket booking process at GWR.com, by contacting Great Western Railway (GWR) on 0345 7000 125 (open 7am to 10pm daily) or by booking in person at a staffed station.

On the smaller local trains, there is an allocation of two bikes per train, on a first come first served basis. It is, however, up to the guard’s discretion – so if the train is empty you may be able to take more.
