I was looking at the SNCF website for train timings from Cannes to Monte Carlo. What I can't figure is the bicycle icon under some the of the trains, and what is ter?!
Thanks. ALso, if we want to stop at Nice, the trip takes much longer...if we go to Monaco non stop and want to return via Nice, will the same ticket return work, or will it be another?
Thanks

The bicycle icon simply means that train passengers are permitted on that particular train with their bicycle without any additional charge. As to the on and off question, I have known folks who have done this, but I am not sure if its technically legit. Before you board any train in France (or anywhere else in Western Europe) you must validate the ticket by inserting it in a machine on or near the platform. That machine simply puts a time-date stamp on the ticket. Failure to validate will result in a hefty fine (on the spot) if you happen to get caught by a ticket check. I have been told by others that you can use a validated ticket for the remainder of the day, but I have never actually seen this policy in writing.
