Taking bikes on Spanish intercity trains is restricted to overnight trains (bikes go under your bunk and must be packed in a special bike bag with the pedals off). Short-range daytime trains normally accept bicycles, although the conductor may decide that the train's too crowded and bump you and your bike. The very expensive alternative is to courier them. Cycling on freeways is against the law. For bike rentals, contact local tourist offices or check with rural hotels; we list some in individual cities.
