Carrying your bike :
You may get some contradicting information about the carriage of bikes. The situation is as follows: bikes should be put in a bike bag or packed to a similar size i.e. 90cm x 120cm (3ft x 4ft) so that they fit onto the luggage racks. Bike bags can be rented from some cycle shops. Complete bikes cannot be carried on the Eurostar (except to Paris) or the TGV. Booking : You can book up to 3 months in advance. NB For Valence the destination is 'Valence TGV'.
How to book
The Eurostar website is the easiest to use.
