You + Train + Bike = 1 Euro

One way for cycling the Canal Du Midi

train and bike for 1 euro in languedoc france

A special program allows our customers to take the TER train and bike for only 1 euro per person.  All destinations inside the Languedoc Roussillon department are available at this special discounted price.  It is important to note that the SNCF (train company) is not really involved. Tickets are available only via the internet and in limited quantities 

The 1 euro tickets are only available on trains that normally are mostly empty. Thus rush hour trains will not be available for 1 euro.  Tickets available 3 weeks before departure date.

Bikes travel free on the TER trains, with a maximum of 6 per train and first come first served basis. Thus arrive 20 minutes ahead of train departure.

Train + Bike in France

Relax Bike Tours is the first and only approved bicycle rental company in Béziers, since August 2012!  To be approved by the SNCF, the French train company, requires the bicycle renter to comply with many strict quality measures.

When you purchase a regular ticket, your bicycle travels for free on most TER trains.
Bikes usually go in the back of the train, where there are hooks to hang your bike from.  Intercity trains and TGV trains require a reservation and a small fee (usually about 10 euros) for bicycles.  TGV trains, furthermore, require the bicycle to be stored in a plastic cover.  For information about traveling with your bike by train, click here.

Buy train tickets for you and your bike using this new website! Unlike the SNCF website, this site allows you to book your bike at the same time as your seat.  Good for Intercity and TGV trains.

When online and booking a seat on a train you need to check to see if there is a bicycle icon next to the train number.  See image below for an example.  When you hover the mouse pointer over the bicycle icon, it will give you more information.  For example, "transport de vélo payant" (a fee is charged for carrying your bike) or "transport de vélo" (bike travels free).
