Cycling Tours in Oxford
Oxford, not only famous for its university but also for boasting to have an example of every British architectural style since the arrival of the Anglo Saxons, of being a city for crowning Kings, and more besides; a rich history indeed. Oxford is also famously known as the city of the bicycle, and there truly is no better way to discover beautiful Oxford than in elegance and style, atop one of our classical, 1920’s inspired English handmade Pashley bicycles. Suitable for cyclists of all levels and ability, we go further than walking tours and in small groups we become more intimate with a greater number of Oxford’s hidden treasures, backstreets and passages that are not accessible by bus or by car.
Among UK cities, Oxford has the second highest percentage of people cycling to work. The bicycle is the very best way to explore and experience the wonderful city of Oxford and its beautiful countryside. The tours provide an illuminating view of the city whilst allowing you to encounter some of the secluded jewels of hidden backstreets and passages that fashion magnificent Oxford, and are not accessible by bus or by car. And all of this explored at a gentle, leisurely pace; truly an adventure not to miss, all the while atop classically styled, English made Pashley Britannia’s.

Their premier cycling tours let you experience enchanting England, with trips that cater for all ages and abilities – from experienced cyclists, to those who want a spot of hiking, to families with younger children.
Bainton Bikes Limited is the labour of love of Kevin and Honour. In 2009 it all started in a cold damp garage at their home in Bainton Road, Oxford where the first hire bikes were built, bespoke cycle tours were plotted by request and their favourite rides throughout the county were put down on paper.
