Anyone got experience with bicycles and trains in France?
I have had all kinds of problems trying to get my bike on a train from Paris to Rennes. Either told the bike has to be in a box (not practical for me) or the train only has a very limited number of spaces and it is already full. This is always when trying to book the high speed (SNCF - i think they are called). I know France has a slower, local network of trains. Has anyone used these to transport bikes across France? I know it will mean lots of trains, but if it allows me to transport me and bike, I'll go for it.
any help appreciated.
