Booking/buying train ticket Paris-Gourdon

Jump to last reply

I feel a little stupid having to ask this, as I know there's a variety of other posts on how to book France rail...but now that I'm faced with trying to find an affordable ticket, I don't know if I'm doing something wrong/overlooking how to find all the possible trips...or if it just is what it is.
Fly in to CDG on 5/26 (8 a.m.), need to get to Gourdon for a self-guided bike tour, leaving on 5/27 (return to Paris on 6/01). Tour organizer needs to give me bike/maps, etc. ON the 26th...and the only reasonably priced fares I'm finding don't get me in to Gourdon until midnight or so (which is too late). There's a 9:30 TGV but that would be cutting things way too close/don't think I could catch (and, it's 113 Euro).
I've also checked into a France rail pass (4 days for $271 -- also doing a short Paris-Bayeux trip), but doesn't include reservations, which I know I need for TGV to Gourdon. Can anyone tell me how much the TGV res. cost?
So, I guess I'm looking for help with times as much as I am the prices -- I just find it hard to understand that there's not a 10:30 a.m. or later train that would get me into Gourdon before 9 at night (and that one is 137 Euros). What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any help/advice you can offer.
