• The Cycle Oxford Festival is back, with some firsts for anyone with a bicycle in Oxford.

    Facebook event to be found here.

    This years festival brings you Oxford's first ever Tweed Ride on the Sunday. Offering the opportunity to come dressed in your finest, and amble around the older parts of our beautiful city and stop off for the occasional scone.

    We'll also be one of 6 UK cities running a Papergirl Ride this spring.
    Oxford's ride will take place on the Saturday and the ride is a celebration of art, bicycles and the act of giving. With the help of artisjustaword, Oxford's artists large and small will be donating simple paper works of art, which will be exhibited the during the festival week, and then handed out randomly to the public on the ride.

    Also not to be missed will be the Guerilla Gardening Alleycat. Come dressed as a gorilla and go in search of some green fingered interactive checkpoints.

    On the Thursday will also be the opportunity to give Grass Track cycling and Bike Polo a try as we launch in partnership with Cherwell School, regular weekly sessions. Bikes and equipment will be provided, and May 5th is all about giving it a try.

    We look forward to seeing you during this action packed week!

    Just in case you haven't see it, here's the video of the 2009 festival:

  • My girlfriend lives in Wallingford so I've convinced her to come along for the tweed ride, I may try to drag her on the ride to Horspath too.

    Shame I live so far away as I'd like to come to some of the other events as well.

  • ...oh, and will there be extra points on the gorilla alleycat if you turn up on a Raleigh Team Banana bike?

  • Pictures of Oxford's Tweed ride are online here

  • Sorry I didn't make it to the Tweed ride, I had a broken down car and a dodgy rip off garage (Nuffield Garage in Crowmarsh-Gifford) to deal with :(

  • Me 2, wedding stops tweed.
