We cycled the 12km from our apartment
to the Gare De Lyon. Luckily we had
done a dummy run to get some experience with the Paris
traffic and bicycle paths and find the way or we would
certainly have missed our train. The traffic was chaotic
and the bicycle path confusing, appearing and disappearing
and switching from one side of the road to the other.
Traveling on a train with bikes is always stressful
in a new country, but it was all very efficient. The
bicycle carriage had hooks to hang the bikes and embarking
and disembarking was straightforward.
