Oxford is a beautiful city packed full of fascinating and historic architecture, spacious countryside, relaxing rivers and canals and has been (and continues to be) where many inspirational people have called home.

You will be offered a unique guided cycle tour of Oxford, where you can see and experience so much more of Oxford and what it has to offer.
  • Soak up the atmosphere as you bike through Oxford in a small group
  • Discover Oxford center, the countryside, and the haunts of famous residents
  • Ride under the Bridge of Sighs and along the Thames River
  • Enjoy multiple stops for a comprehensive overview of the city
What to Expect
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 Thames River 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.”
