A key for a communal
garage for bicycles can be hired for £25/year. The garage
is kept for use by cyclists at Beauchamp Place to store their
cycles securely in the dry. There is also an enclosed area for
bikes with a password protected gate with stands to lock cycles
to. The password is changed regularly. At present (July 2016)
there is a waiting list for use of the garage. The enclosure for
bikes appears to have enough space for more bikes.
The enclosure and gate
is shown in a panoramic view below:
Oxford has an extensive
network of cycle routes around Oxford which avoid the main roads.
Most main roads also have cycle lanes but cyclists still have
to suffer the fumes of the cars and buses so routes around the
back streets are much more agreeable even if they may be slightly
longer. However the jewels in the crown are the paths along the
river and canals. These follow the many water ways passing through
Oxford and are particularly extensive in the North South direction.
You can cycle along the river from Abingdon in the South to Kidlington
in the North.
The nearest access
point to the river is at Iffley Lock and is shown on the map below.
This route requires about 1km of cycling along the road (shown
in blue) before reaching the Lock. A riverside pub (The Isis tavern)
is about 100m from the lock with gardens, food etc.)
