We were on a 2-3 hours guided tour of Oxford. The tour was great and our guide Howard was informative and good company. The bikes were very comfortable and we traveled at a speed to suit everyone.
Greet your guide and small group in central Oxford, don your helmet, and board your bike. Explore the city center first, riding some of Oxford’s oldest paths and pedaling below the Bridge of Sighs.
Next, slip away into the peaceful countryside. Ride through historic Jericho and Port Meadow, along the River Thames and the Oxford Canal. See where Lewis Carroll began his tale of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, where Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien lived, and more.
Finish your tour at the landmark Sheldonian Theatre, designed by Sir Christopher Wren and known as the “jewel in Oxford’s architectural crown.”
