Oxford is quite a small size and in the center it is very crowded. We couldn’t find much good in information suggesting a bicycle route either as GPX file or pamphlet. So we made one up instead.
The Bodleian Library is:
- is the main research library of the University of Oxford
- one of the oldest libraries in Europe
- the second-largest library in Britain after the British Library
- particularly rich in Oriental manuscripts and collections of English literature, local history, and early printing
- one of the most impressive anywhere.
Our route took as past some of the key parts of Oxford but also a little further a field. It is in three parts.
Our bike tour included visiting the Bodleian Library, the Botanic Gardens and a bread shop. Here some of the photos from along the route. Helen provided a good blog post on the bread shop – https://bromptoneering.blog/2019/11/07/great-stop-in-oxford-hamblin-bread/
Normally I’d provide a list of resources for the bike trip. But, I couldn’t find anything two useful. You can use our routes from Strava to get some ideas.
