4km for the return trip.

SURFACE/DESIGNATION

Wide tarmac cycle track.

SAFETY DETAILS

Very safe but cyclists also use it.

FACILITIES

Shops etc. in New Marston and North Oxford.

OTHER DETAILS

Oxford has always had a very high density of cycles, therefore, there are numerous cycle tracks with excellent tarmac, all over the city. The above route is excellent for a work-out within a non-built up environment.
