Default Provence this September

Last year we biked Venice to Lucca via Florence with a side train trip to
Cinque Terra.
This year my wife & I will be flying from Milwaukee to Paris (CDG airport), KLM
on Sept 5, 2004.

We plan to take the high speed train direct from CDG to Avignon. We are
bringing our own bikes in boxes. We plan to set up a home base camp at the
campground on the island next to Avignon. We plan to take day bike trips to
Arles, St Remy, Pont du Gard, Orange, Utes, Baux in Provence, along with a few
other places. Some days we will stay overnite enroute.

We plan to train back to Paris for a few days of sightseeing there. We will be
in country for 15 days.

I will have just turned 60 and I hear that I might be eligible for special
discounted train fare. We are interested in suggestions for this trip from
those of you in the know. Any info will be appreciated.

If you know, when and where should we get our train tickets?
Do you know of reasonably priced and located Paris lodging?
Where can we get bike boxes for our return flight?

Thanks in advance.

Gary & Donna
