    The number of cycle-rail users is growing each year and so it’s important
    that the Association of Train Operating Companies, understand how best to
    provide you with helpful information when you’re planning a rail journey
    with a cycle.

    They want to make your cycle-rail journey as simple as possible with the
    view to clarify information around station cycle facilities, hire schemes
    nearby and cycle restrictions on board trains.

    Take their short survey which will take between 10-15 minutes to
    complete. As a thank you for your time all completed surveys will be
    entered into a free prize draw where four lucky winners will win £25 worth
    of Amazon gift vouchers each.

    The survey and prize draw will close on 31st January. Details of how to
    enter can be found at the end of the survey.

    Been through it, but I wish rather than asking silly questions about social media it was giving me a chance to moan about lack of consistent cycle provision on trains.

    the questions are a bit ridiculous - these people are not in touch with why people cycle and how they use the train/cycle together, which is no surprise really I guess - idiots!

    I just answered at random so I could get to the end and enter the draw.

    I answered the best I could, though they didn't ask about how easy I thought it would be to take a bike on the train.

    It is from ATOC and is being circulated with support from the main cycling organisations.

    Why be so rude? Someone is making an effort to find out why people cycle and how they use bikes and trains... use the survey! :rolleyes:

  11. Thanks. Having completed the survey I can see it drops you back to the National Rail website.

    I went through the survey. Seems to be more about cycling as a mode of transport at either end of a train journey, rather than carriage of bikes on trains. So aligned with the seemingly widespread desire from TOCs to make it difficult to actually bring your bike on train with you.

    Done. I got quite a lot of questions about bikes on trains but I am a bike-train-bike commuter!
