16 km Casual Oxford Cycle

Oxford Cycles

Our cycle routes take you along some traffic-free paths that are well-paved and scenic. Ride along the River Thames, River Rea, and some canals. See a few of the less touristy areas and visit some local pubs and restaurants. Ride over Fignon and Lemond Bridge, named after two well-known Tour de France winners, along Iffley Road where Roger Bannister first broke the 4-minute mile record, and weave through the city centre past the Sheldonian Theatre and under the Bridge of Sighs. Learn a few little-known facts, such as the research focus and purpose of the Clarendon Buildings and see the Beecroft Building opened by and partially donated by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web and URL.
