The route south from Oxford to Abingdon takes you through traffic-calmed streets before joining the off road path parallel with the railway line. Traffic free paths take you across parkland to the heart of the attractive town of Abingdon. From there the route goes via the beautiful village of Sutton Courtenay arriving in Didcot by the railway station.

From Didcot you can get a train back to Oxford or explore the many beautiful routes around Didcot. If Didcot is too far, try going as far as Sandford Lock (5 miles) or Abingdon (9 miles).


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 1 hour 51 minutes to cycle the distance and along the way 787 calories will be burnt.
