Local guide
Children will automatically be given helmets. Adult Helmets only included if you request with notice
Children of height under 1.3m (4 foot 2), requires us to hire in bikes so advance notice is required
We do NOT visit inside colleges on any of the shorter cycle tours, so if you wish to see inside a college, please select the cycle and walk combined tour option. We also cannot guarantee entry into colleges, as it is subject to their being open eg graduation days is problematic.
Gratuities
We do not stock tandem bikes but we can hire in one tandem bike trailer only, if you give us adequate advance notice. This is why we charge you a booking fee for infants to cover that cost. Alternatively, we have one infants child back seat suitable for infants weighing under 17 pounds weight.
Any requests for infant seat, the parent must ride the bike with the one infant seat we can attach.
If you plan to bring children along, please provide ages and heights, at time of booking. Our stock of bikes includes two bikes only which will fit someone of height from 1.4m to 1.5 metres tall. We stock no bikes shorter than that, nor any bikes with tandem child seat on the back. Any such bike requests need to be made known to us, at least 24 hours in advance, as we need to hire in such bikes!

  • If you plan to bring children along, please provide ages and heights, at time of booking. Our stock of bikes includes two bikes only which will fit someone of height from 1.4m to 1.5 metres tall. We stock no bikes shorter than that, nor any bikes with tandem child seat on the back. Any such bike requests need to be made known to us, at least 24 hours in advance, as we need to hire in such bikes!
  • This tour may not be suitable for younger children. If you are shorter than the required height, a fold out bike is available but not recommended for children. The balance on these bikes takes some time to get used to
  • Please dress for all types of weather and bring water
  • Helmets are only offered to adults if you ask (at least 1 day in advance). There is no obligation in Oxford to wear a helmet on bikes. This tour will be avoiding busy roads. If you would like us to provide helmets, please mention if you want S, M, L adult-size
  • A minimum of 2 adults per booking is required- otherwise you could choose to pay for 2 persons
  • A maximum of 12 people per booking is set here but we can accommodate larger groups with significant advance notice given.
  • PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME:
  • Please arrive 5 minutes early for your tour at our meeting point. If you arrive more than 5 minutes later than the scheduled tour, then you will likely forfeit and lose your booking as it interrupts the guide and other customers, if we are trying to find you after a guide has started and left the meeting point.
  • INFO FOR DRIVERS AND PARKING:
  • If you are driving, then please allow extra 30-60 minutes over whatever time you think it will take you to get here. Oxford is NOT car friendly and it is congested roads and hard to find parking spaces....unless you park at the sign posted 'park and rides' on edge of town on any major road into the city and hop on their buses into city centre. The park and ride buses leave every 15 or every 30 minutes and take anything from 10 min to 30 min (depending on traffic) to reach city centre. So if you are going to drive, then please assume you should be aiming to park your car about one hour before your tour starts.
  • PUBLIC TRANSPORT:
  • We actually recommend instead using the much faster and reliable train services but again please aim to arrive about an hour or earlier before your tour starts as trains can be delayed and the train and coach station are about 15 minutes walk from our meeting point. There is also the coach service from London called the Oxford Tube which leaves every half hour or more but it can take much longer than its advertised 105 minute journey time. It drops you off either at High street Oxford or Gloucester Green coach station. It's quicker to ask to get off on High street near Carfax tower, then it's a 10 minutes walk to Broad street.
  • THIS IS A LEISURELY RIDE and Oxford is very flat
