There’s a reason why so many people use bikes in Oxford! This is one of the best cities in the country for cyclists, with flat terrain, minimal traffic and gorgeous scenery.
Moreover, Oxford University is made up of some 38 colleges, spread all over the city. A bike is the perfect way of getting to see all of these dispersed attractions. Our Bike Tour of Oxford shows you a geographical range of sites that we simply can’t reach when we go on foot. We can be marvelling at Balliol College one minute, and zipping out to the lovely Port Meadow the next! Unsurprisingly, these are some of our favourite tours to give!
On this tour, we’ll visit:
Magdalen College (alma mater of Oscar Wilde)
Oxford University Press
Pitt Rivers Museum
St Johns College
Port Meadow (for the definitive guide to Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland)
The Queen’s College
The Eagle and Child pub (former haunt of J.R.R. Tolkien)
You might think that sounds like a lot of biking. Like all of our tours, our Bike Tour of Oxford includes numerous stops at historic and modern places of interest, so the biking really isn’t as intense or as tiring as you might imagine! This tour is suitable for all participants from 12 years up. Children’s bikes may be available but MUST be requested in advance.
