Cycling events on our network

Can you take your bike on board?

Bikes are usually allowed on our trains at off-peak times on weekdays and at weekends.

However, when large cycling events are taking place with hundreds or thousands of participants, restriction will be put in place. This is to avoid the walkways and vestibules on trains becoming blocked by the number of bikes. A queuing system for bikes may be put in place or there may even be a complete ban on bikes for a period of time.

If your event is on a weekday, you’ll need to follow our regular cycle policy.


London to Brighton Bike Ride

Sunday 19 September

As in previous years when large cycle rides have taken place between London and Brighton, restrictions will apply; cycles will not be permitted on any Southern or Thameslink between 09:00 and 12:00. After 12:00, cycles will not be permitted on services departing from stations shaded red on the map below.
