Tadley to Penzance

Despite my concerns that we wouldn’t get the bike onto the train, the journey to Penzance went ok. We cycled out to Mortimer Station and when the local train arrived we went for the end carriage, assuming it wouldn’t matter so much if we blocked the door area with the bike. It did. The guard had to squeeze past to check tickets. The service down to Penzance was better, with a purpose built area that takes 4-5 bikes. Got the tandem on without any issues and went to find our seats. It was a good job we’d reserved – it was packed!
