Bike transport from santiago to Pamplona

Does anyone have experience or suggestions regarding transporting a bicycle from Santiago to Pamplona? I believe the train can be a bit hit and miss and I have read horror stories of bikes being severely damaged when sent with correos. Any advice welcomed (other than riding it!)😄

I've used Renfe a couple of times to take a bike on the Frances and the VDLP. You have to use the Regional or Media Distancia IF the bike is "unfolded". If you can dismantle the bike and put it in a bag then these are the rules for high-speed lines

The bike hire companies who send unfolded bikes all over the Iberian peninsula use DPD. Again used this method twice and bike/accessories appeared without a hitch.

So decision would be accompanied or unaccompanied. And if you are worried about damage, take out insurance or use a quality case.

Have used Correos twice and will continue to use them. Pack the bike yourself, the office in Santiago have the tools, packing material, experience etc. They're not airport baggage handlers 🙂. Or use one of the big freight handling companies, plenty around now everyone is shopping online.
