*During May to August 2022 we will be rolling out an additional cycle storage area for 4 cycles, located in Coach C. Whilst installation is taking place there will be no impact on the day to day running of the trains. These new spaces are horizontal. When the roll-out is complete in August, customers will need to book in advance if they wish to travel with their bike on an Inter7City service.

Customers who are travelling with a bike before the completion in August will be able to book one of the two current reservable spaces, but the other four spaces will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. When the rollout is complete in August this web page will be updated accordingly. Until then you may start to see the additional cycle storage spaces rolling out.
