Discover Oxford: City & Countryside Cycling Tour

1. Discover Oxford: City & Countryside Cycling Tour

The best way to see Oxford and its beautiful surroundings is on a bicycle. In fact, many locals use bikes to get around the city because Oxford is not the most car-friendly place. The bicycle tour route can vary according to any special requests but generally, the itinerary is as follows. Depart from Oxford via bike, 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-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'.

My 18-year okd daughter and I had a wonderful time on this fun e-bike excursion to discover the shore on the East side of Brighton. Our guide Oliver was amazing, he loved both biking and Brighton, which made him the most perfect guide, and his passion and his friendliness made the tour even more enjoyable. Colins who handles the bikes is also super friendly. The tour was very easy thanks to the help of the battery powered bikes, yet it was really beautiful and the e-bike experience was really cool.

This was definitely a highlight of our stay in Brighton. We saw parts of Brighton we’d have never seen. The bikes were fabulous, very well maintained and Colin was very knowledgeable and informative. He made this such a fun experience. Thoroughly enjoyable! 5 star

Great guide Duncan, knowledgeable, good pace, made it fun, read the “room” well making it very personable and relaxed, and overall it was a very joyful way to experience the sights of Brighton for me and my cousin Kate. Thank you!! Loved the action photos too!

We were given a friendly and interesting tour around Brighton, with a historical twist and lovely ride along the sea front for an ice cream stop. Cicely and Duncan were both helpful before the trip and with practicalities on the day.

Duncan our tour guide was so great and there where only me and my husband on the tour and that was great.
