Copied from http://caravanistan.com/transport/train/iran/ :

You can put your bike on a train in Iran, as well as on a bus. Prices will be similar. On the train, your bike must be checked as cargo, for which you need to pay separately.

Thank you Steven. I have another question.
I red in "caravanistan info page visa" that for travelling in bicycle is necesary to "purchase a tour". What does it mean?
I would like to carry on board my bicycle and take a trip independently from shiraz-yazd- esfahan.
Is not possible?
thanks

2 things:

1. You can now apply for a visa authorisation code online, so you no longer need to go through a tour operator.
2. You need to book a tour if you SAY you are cycling. If you do not SAY you are cycling, you do not need to get a tour. I hope you understand me.
