Eurovelo6 to the Atlantic and to the Black Sea from Zurich

In May to July this year I cycled to St-Brevin-les-Pins from Zurich. The reports is as following blog:

Next year, I would like to cycle to the Black Sea from Zurich.
When I arrive the final destination of Eurovelo6, Constanza, I would like to come back by train to Bucharest from Constanza. If anyone who knows how I can transport my bicycle with baggages in train,
say, I would like to know if they have the same kind of train in Rumania like in Germany and Austria.
Or, how I can transport the bicycle by train in another way. I have two front baggs, two rear bags and tent, and I do not want to disassemble my bicyle.
In Bucharest, I will take plain to Zurich.

  • Hey your blog is not in English! When are you planning to cycle - we are going June July! From Bulgaria to London! http://www.euvelomarathon.com

    get in touch and say hi!
  • We cycled St Nazaire to the Black Sea and caught trains back with our touring bikes fully laden with front and rear panniers. From Constanza there's a direct regular service to Bucharest. Then there's a through (daily overnight 'Ister') train from Bucharest departing approx 19.00hrs to Budapest (beware the bikes issue- get clear paperwork in advance and if they won't do that,(they may say you can't take bikes but you can)- you may have to 'pay' the guards as we a did -a bribe in effect. At Budapest, arriving about 08.50 -it used to be 05.00- there was last Summer (2011) a really excellent bike friendly direct twice daily DB 175 service through to Berlin or Hamburg- passing through Bratislava, Praha (Prague) and Dresden en route. This appears to be discontinued so I'd suggest one of the following minimum changes journey. It depends which ferry to UK you'd want to catch but the French ports are really tricky to get to as you have to travel via Paris, so Hook of Holland is maybe the best option: 1) Budapest (keleti pu) to Rotterdam Centraal via changes at Breclav, Berlin, Amersfoort. From Rotterdam its then a short cycle or train ride to the Hook of Holland ferry port for ferries to Harwich. Trains from Harwich to London Liverpool St take bikes free. 2) Budapest (keleti pu) to Rotterdam via changes at Praha and Utrecht - its then a short cycle or train ride from Rotterdam to the Hook of Holland et al..... 3) Budapest (keleti pu) to Rotterdam via changes at Praha, Koln, Monchengladbach and Venlo. Rotterdam to Hook et al........ Bikes and tickets can be booked for all these journeys through Deutsche Bahn UK at www.bahn.co.uk and sales@bahn.co.uk Hope that helps.

  • oh sorry - thought you wanted to return to the UK....ooops! Robin.atlarge@phonecoop.coop

  • I cycled from Amsterdam to the Black Sea in 2012. I went through Galati to Tulcea. And then, to Constanza. I could take a bus at Constanza railway station to Bucarest.
    I met Spanish cyclists at Bucarest. They said that they could also take a bus at Tulcea to Bucarest.
    I talked with many cyclists in Rumania and had impression that you will be able to come back to Bucarest from the Black Sea easier by bus than by train.
    I could complete the cycling from the Atlantic to the Black Sea in three times.
    Thank you for everybody who gave me information.
