We work with local communities
We collaborate with local residents and community groups to support more people to cycle in Oxford and Oxfordshire.
Whether it be free Dr Bike repair stalls at summer fairs around the city, an illuminated bike ride as part of West Oxford Light Festival, or partnering with groups who support those new to cycling, Cyclox is there.
Following our bikes for key workers project, in 2022 Cyclox worked with Asylum Welcome and Active Oxfordshire to provide bikes for refugees. We refurbished another 380 bikes donated by members of the public and passed them on to refugees across the county, including a large number of Ukrainains fleeing the war in their country. This project is now run by Asylum Welcome.
Online cycle map
The map came out of conversations with children and older cyclists and was developed by local cycling enthusiasts. It shows routes that are car-free, protected or low-traffic, and walking-only. You can use it to work out safe cycling routes to key places in the city, such as schools and hospitals. Open the map directly in Google.
Bikes for key workers
When the pandemic hit in 2020, Cyclox started refurbishing donated bikes to give to key workers. With the help of around 20 furloughed mechanics in the city, and a number of partner organisations, we handed out around 380 refurbished bikes. These allowed key workers to travel to work safely and quickly.
