In May 2007, a report from the European Cyclists Federation said “The United Kingdom offers the best conditions for bicycle carriage on long-distance trains.”
Bicycle Carriage on Long Distance Trains in the European Union may paint a picture we Brits don’t recognise but for an even rosier view of bicycle carriage on trains check out this classic movie short from May 1955. It’s available as a hi-res video available for playing and storing on iPods etc here.
Or click on the picture below to make it play in lo-res via YouTube.
CTC members no longer go on group rides via ‘cyclists’ special’ trains. Shame.
