Bikes and Train:

According to the current legislation of RENFE (the train company), on regional and commuter trains travelling with bicycles is allowed, but on intercity trains (e.g. TALGO) they are prohibited. The regional trains have only three places for bikes and passengers must ask to be authorized to bring their bicycles the moment they buy the ticket, even if they only bring one. Bikes ARE allowed on the Puebla – Valladolid route. If a Pilgrim wanted to take their bicycle to Madrid, for example, they would have to take the Zamora – Medina del Campo train, change trains and then take the Medina del Campo – Madrid train (leaves Zamora at 8:32 a.m. and arrives in Medina at 9:30 a.m. Leaves Medina at 10:30 a.m. and arrives in Madrid at 3:00 p.m. In this case, bikes can be taken unpacked and unfolded.
