Letter: Cycling through the forest

The Independent Online
Sir: Randeep Ramesh reports on cyclists travelling to the Forest of Dean by car . He states that an alternative is to travel by train to Chepstow. Today I have tried to book places for four bikes on the train from Chepstow to Birmingham. South Wales and West Rail inform me that only two places for bikes can be reserved on each train. So the problem is not that "many cyclists see rail travel as old fashioned", but the absence of a service.
