Discover Oxford: City & Countryside Cycling Tour
- Escape the city crowds to see Oxford on two wheels, like the locals do
- Enjoy the view while cycling down the Thames River cycle path to a historic village
- Take a leisurely ride to visit a picturesque village with traditional thatched cottages and see inside an early medieval church
- Relax on an optional garden pub stop
Depart from Oxford on a 3-hour cycle tour, 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 1.5 to 2-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'.
