Exploring nature, art or history in the Greater Paris area just got easier.
The simple search words “impressionists transilien and bike” in a search engine, points directly to the correct and simple-to-use new page “Sightseeing with Transilien .
While searching transportation information on the Chantilly Racecourse, I found an interesting Australian website: Rome2Rio. They provide info on TER, RER, taxi, car, etc.
The SNCF radio pop-up window starts playing to put you in the mood. If you hold a monthly or annual Navigo pass visit Use Navigo for Weekend and Holiday Advantages if you want to tour in zones 1 through 5 around Paris.
Then take your pass and enjoy some of these suggestions in the Île-de-France region:

Rent a bike in Paris and take it on the train to different destinations: Moret sur Loing, for example.
