Anyone know what the chances are of getting a train from Versailles to Rambouillet with a bike?, I suppose i's only 30km I could ride it.

Well in 2019 I did it there and back with no problem (twice). Lots of other cyclists so it was quite busy, mind.

Yeah bikes on those trains are fine.

There’s a not quite as suicidal as it looks cycle path following the edge of the dual carriageway too, although I’ve only done it west of the velodrome.

Could a tandem get on one of those trains, from Trappes?

Yes I have done it in previous PBPs but try to avoid rush-hour.
