Thinking of cycling in Spain and perhaps taking your bike on the train? Here's what you need to know before you go!
Written by Didi Knowlton
When undertaking a long distance bicycle tour it can make sense to cut out certain long haul sections of the journey, especially if you are short on time. One of the best ways to travel these parts of your route is to simply put your bike on the train - or is it?
If you are bike touring in Spain, there are a few things you should be aware of if you want to use the rail services for any part of your journey. You should be able to take your bikes on the train on most rail routes using the Regional or Media-Distancia trains, and making sure that you book your train seats ahead of time and add a notification that you will be bringing a bicycle.
If you are travelling with friends, you also need to be aware that there is a maximum of 3 bikes per train composition.
You can get more details from the official Renfe website.
