Bike tourism: a missed opportunity for Oxford

By Roger Symonds

My partner and I are recent Oxford residents and we love the city. We moved from Bath at the beginning of August 2019. One of the main reasons for the move was that Oxford is flat. We were also impressed by the number of people riding bikes and the bike

Your cycling rights and responsibilities

As we all navigate Oxford’s very congested streets during rush hour and experience these frustrations, we feel there is an opportunity for everyone to be more considerate of each other. This initiative is designed to remind cyclists of their right to be on the road, as well as their

We want traffic bulletins for cyclists

By Richard MacKenzie

In an attempt to work towards normalising cycling here in Oxford, last month I launched a petition to back a simple idea.

Changing travel habits

By Andy Chivers

I met up with a friend who lives in south Devon. He drives 8 miles each way to work and is leaving earlier and earlier because of traffic congestion and difficulty finding a parking place. To a pedal head like me the answer seemed obvious, but when we talked about e-bikes he said, ‘Isn’t that
