Bicycles and kick scooters (non-electric)

Travel with your bicycle or kick scooters (non-electric) on all of our trains. Only specific types of trains allow you to travel with a bicycle or scooter, so read on!

  • If you travel on AVE (high-speed), AVE International between Spain and France and Larga Distancia (Long Distance: Alvia, Intercity and Euromed) or Avant (mid-distance high-speed) trains:

    • Your bicycle or scooter must be folded or disassembled and carried inside a bag. One bicycle or scooter per person. Remember, you must keep it in the carrying case from the ticket control point to the end of your journey.
    • If the sum of the dimensions of the case is less than 180 cm, they are considered as hand luggage. If they exceed 180 cm, they will be considered as special luggage (maximum dimensions allowed 140x90x40 cm.)
    • Pedals must be removed and the handlebars turned 90º.
    • Keep in mind that you must add the Bicycle Add-on when you buy your AVE and Larga Distancia (long distance high-speed) tickets if the bicycle exceeds the maximum hand luggage dimensions, it is free!
    • If travelling with your bicycle and scooter on the AVE International high-speed train between Spain and France, the same terms and conditions apply, except that luggage tagging is mandatory. 



  • If you are travelling on Avlo trains:

    • Only folding bicycles and scooters are allowed, provided that they do not exceed the maximum dimensions established for luggage: 55x35x25 cm (cabin bag, with no weight limit, included free of charge in the price of the Basic fare)
    • In the case of bicycles and scooters measuring 85x60x35 cm or a maximum of 180 cm in total, the Additional luggage add-on must be purchased, either directly at the time of purchase of your ticket for €10, after purchase and online for €15 or directly at the station, at boarding control, up to 30 minutes before your train departs for €15.
    • Remember that bicycles and scooters must always be folded away and placed in their carrying case.
  • If you travel on Media Distancia (mid-distance) trains (not Avant):

    • Folded bicycles may travel as hand luggage or special luggage, depending on the measurements (see all the information). You do not need to include the Bicycle add-on if you carry it folded or packaged.
    • You need to purchase the Bicycle add-on if your bicycle is not going to be folded during the trip. The only limitation is that you can take one bicycle or scooter per person. They do not need to be disassembled or carried inside a bag.
    • On Media Distancia (Mid-distance) trains, your unfolded bicycle travels in the specific area on board for transportation. Please note that the number of bicycles that can travel on each train is limited (up to three bicycles). When you purchase your train ticket, once you have selected the train, you will see a list of add-ons, from which you can select the ticket for your bicycle. On routes of more than 100 km, this ticket costs 3 euros and on routes of less than 100 km it is free, although you will have to book your space when purchasing the ticket. 
    • If you have a pass, you will not be eligible for the bicycle add-on when you validate your trip, so you must go to a ticket office in your station.


  • If you are travelling on Cercanías (Commuter) trains:

    • You can travel with your bicycle, one per person.
    • The bicycle must be placed in the spaces intended for such purposes. If there is no signposted area on the train, place it on the access platform, not in the way of passageways or non-tip-up seating areas.
    • If there are many passengers on the train and you cannot travel with your bicycle, you can choose to travel on another train or receive a refund for your ticket.
    • You are responsible for your bicycle. Make sure that you take it on and off the train and look after it in such a way that you do not damage the train's elements or misplace it.
    • If you prefer, you can also leave your bike in any of the bicycle parking spots at the stations. Read all the information.
