Transport your bike on FlixTrain
You are welcome to bring your bike on FlixTrain, simply add your bike slot in the booking where you select passengers. Our coaches are equipped with bike racks where you can park your bike during your trip. Keep in mind that we cannot guarantee that you will get a seat in the same coach as the bicycle rack, so make sure to first get on where the bicycle rack is located (usually in the front or rear of the train; in Germany it is always coach number 1) and then continue to the carriage where your seat is.
Park your bike
You attach your bike by hanging it onto the rack (see picture). Keep in mind that you are responsible for keeping an eye on your bike. We recommend that you lock the bike as well.
