Established by two cycle loving sisters, Cycle Tours Oxford is the culmination of a lifetimes ambition to turn a personal passion into a source of public pleasure.
The inspiration for a bicycle based tour in Oxford was first given serious consideration in 2008. Having just spent 3 years studying for her degree in Oxford, Charmaine was eager to finally get to know the city that had been her home those last few years, and, with her sister visiting from London, thought that there would be no better way of discovering the venerable city than by bicycle.
However, much to their surprise, nothing akin to this was available, despite Oxford’s eminent suitability for such an endeavour. It was this lack of such an activity that galvanised the girls on to grasp the opportunity to create Cycle Tours Oxford!
Given their avid passion for cycling, and the wealth of knowledge held by Charmaine, as well as the in depth knowledge that Darna holds on history, art and architecture (thanks to her degree), they decided to sculpt a truly British experience, bringing together supreme examples of British history, architecture and engineering, all delivered with the utmost quality and style.
Delivering their tours on English-built Pashley bicycles, made in Stratford-upon-Avon since 1926, Cycle Tours Oxford delivers stunning and genteel tours around a magnificent, historical city with the passion and knowledge needed to bring Oxford and its history alive!
It is thanks to these ambitions that they have produced Oxford’s only dedicated bicycle touring company, providing perhaps the finest specialised tours in the city, with the ambition to bring this service to many more of Britain’s historic cities, so watch this space for more!
