Travelling with Bikes
If you plan to travel by train to watch the Tour of Britain, we ask that customers leave their bikes securely locked at the station or at home.

Space on trains is limited and to allow as many people to travel as possible GWR asks that you do not travel with your bike.

Services to and from key locations are expected to be busy for Stages one and two, and in line with Government advice customers are expected to wear a face covering on board.
