Oxford by bicycle. 18 October, 2020.
Oxford Canal to Thrupp, Shipton-on-Cherwell, Enslow, Bletchingdon, and Hampton Poyle.
Taking the towpaths along the Oxford Canal is one of my favourite rides, especially if just going up to the picturesque town of Thrupp. We decided to ride few miles further and explore a few more villages that we’ve never visited before. The canal was lovely and the sense of autumn very much in the air. Riding past canal narrow boats, the scent of burning wood in the little ovens often found onboard created a very romantic sense that the seasons were indeed changing and by the time we got home I could only think of warm fires, soup, blankets and other cold weather comforts. Another lovely day.
