Taking bikes on trains in France

New Year, new French cycling adventure?

I thought it'd be a good time to post a short blog with some more info on travelling by train in France and some links to some info on how to do it with your bike.

French trains are great and, with a little planning, you'll find that they take you pretty much anywhere and should get you within pedalling distance of the start of your chosen bike route.

We've got a few relevant articles in the planning section of the site: Bikes and French Trains and Trains to France, but I thought I'd post a link to the voyages-sncf.com bicycle FAQ page. It carries bike carriage info on the various types of trains in France and elsewhere in Europe.
