Oxford and bikes!

Bicycles are synonymous with Oxford, they are everywhere! They are the go to method of transport for many. It’s aways been a cheap way for students to get around town from digs to college and now I’m sure many locals use them to avoid traffic congestion.

Walking round the city I saw lots of signs saying do not lean against railing etc…. sometimes those signs are ignored! and I also saw bikes used as advertising and decoration.

Of course the buses are still popular for locals and hop on and off ones for tourists, it’s an especially great way to see the tops of those gracious spires.

There are park and ride facilities outside of the town and the train station is convenient to walk into the shopping and college areas.

Whichever way you visit be sure to count the bikes!
