Description
Often dubbed the ‘cycling city’, the beautiful and historic Oxford is arguably best explored by bike. So why not join the students peddling down the cobbled streets and hitch a ride on the Oxford Cycle Bus? Your tour will be guided by a local Oxford expert as you explore 4.5 miles of intriguing history.

Peddle past the infamous Broad Street, known locally as ‘The Broad’, where the Oxford Martyrs were burned at the stake in 1555 for refusing to give up their Protestant faith under the tyrannous rule of Queen Mary I, half sister of Elizabeth I. Look out for the cross made from stones in the road as you peddle by, a 16th century memorial to the martyrs.

Other famous sites on your one and a half hour Cycle Bus tour include the Oxford Castle, where Oxford defended itself during the 12th Century Civil War, aptly named The Anarchy. Glide past the honey coloured stone colleges (there are 39 in total) and take in all that this rich city has to offer.

There is no fitness level required for this tour and it is designed to be enjoyed by all ages and capabilities, just make sure you’re wearing comfy clothes and footwear.

The meeting point for this tour is Broad Street (look out for the Martyrs cross), which is opposite the Oxford Campus Stores. Tours run Monday to Friday at 9.00am, 11.00am, 13.00pm and 15.00pm. Please make sure you arrive 10 minutes before your tour starts.
