Gravel Road Routes
Calling all gravel grazers and grinders, welcome to our gravel road cycling routes page! Here in Oxford, we truly believe our unpaved back roads hold some of the county's most scenic vistas. Rolling hills, gorgeous farmscapes and fresh rural air await you on your next ride as you face the grit and challenge of a gravel ride. Whether you want to ride along tree-tunnelled roads or see some bovine friends along the way, your next cycling trip is sure to be scenic, exciting and as challenging or relaxing as you choose. With four routes throughout Oxford, riders of all skill levels can grab their bikes (make sure you have the right type!) and enjoy our back roads from your two wheels. With a few stops along the way featuring everything from award-winning local cheese and a skincare shop to barn theatre and pubs to fuel up, Oxford is a great place to get off the beaten path.
