Train & Bike

To really travel green, consider the train on the Veloscenic !

The TER and other trains are a practical way to get back to the start, or vice-versa, to organize a weekend get-away or simply to skip a stage or two.

  • Most TER ( Express Regional Transport) allow you to take your bicycle on-board free of charge, as hand luggage in designated spaces
  • Some Intercity and TGV (High Speed Train) trains offer several spaces for bikes, generally with prior booking
  • On this site you can find the location of stations on the route maps and practical information about the trains in the ‘details’ section of the stages
  • Check for SNCF offers before departing.
  • You can find the routes and timetables on TER websites for the following regions:
  • Paris and its region (Ile de France) (EN)
  • TER Brittany (FR)
  • TER Normandy (FR)
  • Line BAIE - Mont Saint-Michel (FR)
  • And specific information at www.voyages-sncf.co.uk (EN) or on the SNCF website dedicated to bikes in train(EN)

For your own comfort and that of the other users:

  • avoid boarding trains with a bicycle during rush hour
  • look for bicycle signs on the carriages
  • arrive early to avoid delays when departing
  • don’t ride your bicycle in stations
  • travel light!
