I am coming to Rotterdam for the World Triathlon Championships in September. I arrive at Amsterdam airport and need to get to Rotterdam Central station. I will have a bike that is packaged up in a bike bag plus another small piece of hand luggage. It is recommended that you travel by train between the two venues. Can you travel on any train with a bike packaged up like that? If I buy a train ticket in advance is it for a certain train or can you use it on any train? Are the tickets sent in the post or do you print them out via email? Do you have to reserve a space on the train for your bike like in the UK? Or is there an easier way to travel?
I look forward to hearing from you.
