On this tour you will explore the different landscapes surrounding Oxford - the river Thames, the rolling Cotswold Hills and the Oxford Canal.

On day one, there is a flat river focused route exploring a string of riverside villages and the elegant town of Abingdon before returning leisurely to Oxford by boat. On the following day, you'll embrace a peaceful ride along the canal to Blenheim Palace and a charming foray into the Cotswolds. For your third day, pedal along the Thames meadows and its rural villages to the north of Oxford and return along the canal.
