We will be arriving in Paris via airplane, and then doing a 10 day bike tour that starts in Bordeaux and goes through Dordogne. We have never been to Europe and have so many questions. Should we rent our touring bikes in Paris, or wait until Bordeaux? If we aren't going to ride through Paris, can we still approach Warmshower hosts in Paris, as we would like to see the city by foot/subway for 5 days, or is this site exclusively for when we are actually on our bikes? Can you take a bike on the train between Paris and Bordeaux? Is there a really good bike rental company in either Paris or Bordeaux? Last, but not least, is there a common route for cyclists in Dordogne? We want to ride for 10 days, and hope to ride about 40 miles a day. Thanks!
