This week is National Bike Week, a week of rides and events all over the country, celebrating everything thats great about getting out on two wheels. (The non-motorised kind!)
In my home city of Oxford, cycling is obviously very popular amongst the town and gown alike. There are lots of cycling events scheduled this week and hopefully I will get to attend a couple. All of the events can be found at www.bikeweek.org.uk/events
One of the ideas behind Oxford Bike week is to encourage more people to get out there and do some cycling.
I think cycling is not only good for the environment and your general health, but it can also be good for the soul. There are some amazing buildings and landmarks that I get to see and enjoy that I would otherwise miss if I were driving.
Like thousands of other people, my journey to work sends me through the heart of the city. It can be tough sometimes, especially with our current infrastructure but cycling through this beautiful city does have a few perks.
So here are my top five soul stirring sites of my daily commute. (I’m no expert on these places and I’d like to thank Wikipedia for the information).
NUMBER 5: Osney Bridge
NUMBER 4: The Oxford Playhouse.
NUMBER 3: The Randolph
NUMBER 2: Ashmolean Museum
NUMBER 1: The Eagle and Child
So thats about it. And this is just the quickest route to work for me. I know there are many, many more site to see around the city.
So why not give it a go yourself, who knows what you might find.
