bicycle rental at Versailles

Hi, can anyone tell me where I might rent a bike after getting off the RER to visit Versailles and an approximate cost? I'd prefer a self-directed tour rather than joining an organized group tour. Thanks.

Bike hire for an afternoon or a day riding around the vast gardens of the chateau of Versailles. The rentals location is in Place Raymond Poincare next to Gare des Chantiers (78).

Last time i were there you could also hire bikes in the park down below the formal parterre gardens at the rear of the palace - by the huge water course that was created for naval spectacles - ride around the vast park.

A good biking destination in the vast park is to go to the Hameau - the Hamlet where Marie-Antoinette used to play a peasant in the re-created farm setting. It's recently been re-vamped so that now there's lots on Marie and her antics before she lost her head for things like this.
