Taking a bike on a train - complicated?

We are going long distance

The train only has 2 bike spaces and they can't be reserved

We need to book our tickets in advance - only 2 trains a day

I'm stuck - what do I do?

Looking at their policy rather than the National Train site you can reserve - panic over

Yes, you need to reserve spaces on this route and they can be reserved, see here:

Not always a good idea to rely on station staff for cycle related matters as they can be quite clueless.

I'm starting to understand that!

I'll go out & book it later I think
