I am going to be biking through France this fall and, at some point, will probably have to take a train from Amsterdam to Paris. I was wondering where I can buy one of the bike bags needed to take a dismounted bike on the train and roughly how much the bags cost. I would also be interested to know if anyone has taken a bike on FlixBus and has advice...
Thanks in advance!
Not on Front Page
for thalys the size should be 135 x 85 x 30 cm.
somethings like that
I take flixbus with bike in germany as the bus has bike rack
in france there are no bike racks so you have to dismount and book ahead
size hauteur en cm + largeur en cm + profondeur en cm) de 240 cm
here is a german site that shows a lot of possible models in all price-ranges. It should be easy to find those models on french or dutch websites.
my experience wth TGV (also french national train):
dismount the front wheel, turn the handle bars & wrap in a bag plastic bag (I got mine in a matress store).
In the TGV there a extra long bag compartments in 1.class , top floor, just behind the driving unit.Take that!
Cheque that for Thalys, it works with TGV. (Had a great lift from Marseille to Frankfurt).
