Travelling with your bike

Folding bicycles are permitted on Chiltern services at all times provided they are fully folded and stored without hindering other passengers

Regular bicycles are carried (except tandems) on any Chiltern Railways train on Saturdays, Sundays or Public Holidays subject to space being available, and at the discretion of our staff. 

On Mondays to Fridays you can also use most of our trains. The only exceptions are our busiest peak hour services.

For the safety and comfort of all our passengers, bikes are not allowed at any point during the journey on any train:

    - Arriving London Marylebone, Oxford or Birmingham Moor Street from 0745 to 1000.

    - Leaving London Marylebone, Oxford or Birmingham Moor Street from 1630 to 1930

In addition, non-folding bicycles are not permitted for any part of the journey of the train that leaves Bicester North at 0622 on weekday mornings (Haddenham & Thame Parkway 0634, Princes Risborough 0643. High Wycombe 0654 and Beaconsfield 0702) and arrives at London Marylebone at 0728. This is due to the type of train used to form this service.

For further clarity please download our timetable.

Within our timetable trains shown with  a no_bikes.png symbol means that bikes are not permitted on board at any point during this service.

We are sorry that bikes can not be taken on rail replacement buses at any time. There are no restrictions on folding bikes at any time, provided they are fully folded.


Cycles can be hired from just outside London Marylebone Station. For information visit
