    Change in reply by Jeff to Thank you for your question, Rick.<br><br>In Spain, fully assembled bicycles would only be allowed on board 'Media Distancia' (MD) trains and other regional trains (fully assembled bicycles would not be allowed on board the high-speed trains in Spain). Conveniently, the trains that connect <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid</a> and Salamanca do happen to be Media Distancia trains, so you will be able to take your bicycle on board still fully assembled.<br><br>On Media Distancia trains, one bicycle is allowed per person; however, passengers traveling in a group with 3 or more bicycles must receive authorization from 'Renfe-Operadora' before boarding. If a particular Media Distancia train is at maximum capacity, you may end up having to purchase a special ticket for your bike, which you would have to do locally.<br><br>You would purchase your tickets and check schedules for trains from <a title="Link httpwwwraileuropecompopular-routesmadrid-to-salamancahtml" href="http://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/madrid-to-salamanca.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid to Salamanca</a> by clicking on 'Find Fares &amp; Schedules' on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/index.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">our homepage</a> and entering the cities.<br><br>The trains from Madrid to Salamanca depart from the <a title="Link httpwwwraileuropecomeurope-travel-guidespainmadridtrain-stationmadrid-chamartin-train-stationhtml" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/train-station/madrid-chamartin-train-station.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Madrid Chamartin station</a> in Madrid, which is one level. The station in Salamanca is also just one level. Therefore, you would need to carry your bike up any stairs.<br>.
