Oxford’s cycle routes form a dual network. The main routes follow normal traffic corridors. There are quite a lot of cycle lanes, traffic is not too bad, the junctions are OK, but take care around buses. The quiet routes avoid the traffic (mostly). They aren’t always well-signposted, but you can see them on the new Oxford Bus and Cycle Map.
An alternative view of the routes can be seen on OpenStreetMap. This covers the whole world, focusing on marked cycle routes in the countryside.
Using the same OpenStreetMap data, this Journey Planner, will work out a route for you.
Printed copies of the cycle map are available from Cyclox (at our meetings and stalls), or from Walton Street Cycles and other bike shops. You may also still find copies of the County Council cycle map, though it’s out of date, and not as clear. The County Council bus map and central bus stop guide are much more up to date.
