Medium weight clothes are recommended as a base. A raincoat, woolen sweater, wind breaker and good walking shoes are essential. The average temperatures in Scandinavia/Russia/The Baltics during the period May through September are around 70° F with low humidity.

Bicycle Carriage on Trains in Russia
Submitted by M05728
Long-distance trains:
According to the regulations every passenger may carry up to 36 kg (50 kg for the 1 class). Bicycles should be demounted (at least wheels, pedals, handlebar) and covered. The main problem is to find place to keep especially if there are more than one bicycle. In the 3 class it is easier because there are special luggage berths there.

Commuter trains (electrichka):
Bicycle tickets fare is about 1 Euros. No special cars or place for bicycles. In some trains there is a lot of space, in some ... view more space is very limited (you should apply your creativity to put your bicycle).
