  • Discover Oxford: City & Countryside Cycling Tour

    3. Discover Oxford: City & Countryside Cycling Tour

    The best way to see Oxford and its beautiful surroundings is on a bicycle. In fact, many locals use bikes to get around the city because Oxford is not the most car-friendly place. The bicycle tour route can vary according to any special requests but generally, the itinerary is as follows. Depart from Oxford via bike, and follow a relaxing scenic route along the Thames River path to visit a picturesque village with thatched cottages, a medieval church, and scenic views. You then continue on a 1-hour walking tour that will introduce you to the sights of Oxford city sights, including visits inside the university colleges. It is also possible to schedule a pub stop for refreshments and, regardless of the route, you can gain insight into how a boat trip along this route in 1862 inspired Lewis Carroll's story-telling of 'Alice in Wonderland'.

    Great afternoon out in this wonderful city. Relaxed , informative and delivered with panache! Would highly recommend

What people are saying about Oxfordshire

Really enjoyed this cycle tour. We are a family of 5 and the tour guide (Fred) made the tour very interesting and child friendly. A good balance of biking and telling us interesting stories about Oxford. Would highly recommend. We did the tour on a Sunday and the city was very quiet which was an added bonus. A super opportunity to see learn about the city whilst getting some exercise.

Fun way with family to see Oxford. Would recommend. Have a 8yr old and a 12yr old who loved it and despite being on roads felt safe. No helmet provided, so if taking kids may want to take your own. We had ours in the car. Loved the bikes, adjustable for all heights. Nice friendly and funny tour guide. I don't think I'll do a walking tour again.

We had a good tour of the city. The guide (Fred - a recent graduate in Law) was excellent. His knowledge of Oxford and the University were brilliant. He had lots of funny and informative stories and anecdotes. The bikes were good and easily adjustable for participants. We would certainly recommend this activity
