Cycle Steps
A circular route which can be started at any point taking in the picturesque villages of Bletchingdon, Islip and Hampton Poyle and taking in Oxford city centre.

Relatively easy, with a couple of uphill sections. The road to Gosford (off Banbury road) is actually a bridleway, it is signed as 'Kidlington circular walk/route' and marked as no vehicular access, take this route, it is mostly concreted but the is a part mettled, part dirt track towards the railway crossing. This is the only dirt track section, the rest is road or concrete bridleway, I did it on a road bike which wasn't ideal but the section is only short.

Overall this is a fairly gentle mid distance ride, on mainly quiet roads taking in some lovely countryside and villages.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
A number of pubs on route at Bletchingdon and Islip. Beeline Bikes can be found slightly off route on Cowley road in the city centre.

I disagree that these are 'mainly quiet' roads - the road from Bletchingdon towards Islip is not quiet. It is quite hary at times - the speed limit used to be 60 (now 50), and cars/lorries regularly exceed this.

Not a nice place to cycle!
