The joy of a good cycle path. It is quicker to cycle into town, especially at Rush Hour. (Donnington Bridge)
Outside New College
All Soul’s and Radcliffe Camera. Parts of Oxford are prohibited for through traffic.
An attractive Bike rack by the unattractive Westgate centre. It’s not all cycling Utopia though. Cyclists have to battle with the almost incessant stream of buses.

Bikes outside the Radcliffe Camera. People used to picnic on the lawn outside this great library. But, it became too noisy for the students. Therefore black railings were put up; these railings have become an unofficial bike rack.

It is fascinating to see the diversity of people who ride around town on bikes. I took these photos over a period of three years. Initially, I was using a compact camera. I now have a Canon 500D with faster shutter speed.
