A TRAIN company has announced restrictions on travelling with a bicycle on Sunday the day of the British Heart Foundation London to Brighton Bike Ride.

On Saturday and Monday passengers travelling on train services from Brighton with cycles may experience delays.

A queueing system will be in place.

On the day of the race passengers will not be able to board Southern services with a non-folding cycle at any Southern station from the start of service until midday.

After that they will be able to board north of Gatwick, east of Pevensey and Westham and west of Fishbourne stations, but will not be able to take their bikes to stations that carry an all-day ban.

First Capital Connect will also be excluding non-folding cycles under the same conditions as Southern on the Sunday.

These restrictions apply to all cyclists.

The British Heart Foundation makes alternative arrangements for bike ride participants on the day to travel between London and Brighton. For details see bhf.org.uk/L2Binfo
