Hava met us right on time at the appointed spot. After our RER ride to Versailles, we walked only a short distance to the bicycle storage area. The bikes were really quite good, with rain ponchos and several with panniers for carrying our lunches (and even free gloves for the cool morning). We had plenty of time to shop for wine, cheese, bread, pastries, and even had time for a crepe before beginning our ride around the gardens. Hava was filled with a lot of information about the Palace, French history, and Marie Antoinette. She had a packet of photos of all the important characters as well as the development of Versailles. We visited the Grand Trianon, the Petit Trianon, the Queen's Hamlet, and the gardens on the bikes. We lunched on the grass at the far end of the Grand Canal with the Palace in the distance. Priceless. We returned our bikes and then had time to tour the Palace. Rail transportation and entrance to the Palace were included in the ticket price. Danged good experience.
