Currently a train ticket = £132. That is Wick to Lancaster with two changes.
I did come across a ticket for Wick to Glasgow for £32 but would then need to get on to Lancashire.
There's not much point in looking until around 12 weeks before, you'll probably just get the standard fare.
I looked at a random date within the 12 weeks and Wick to Lancaster can be had for £42, ticket splitting see earlier posts.
Travel however you want, but the dozen times I've taken my bike to Scotland it's been cheap and simple. To me all the alternatives posted look like more hassle at an increased cost, with the only benefit being maybe saving a few hours.
