Sustrans national cycle routes will bring you to into the centre of Abingdon and your journey here will take you through peaceful and rolling countryside. There is some road cycling and the route through Radley and also towards Milton Park is less suitable for children now with the volume and speed of traffic.
Local cycle route the Hanson Way runs from Oxford to Didcot via Abingdon. The Hanson Way is part of Sustrans national route 5 which links with the Oxford cycle ways and the towpath on Oxford Canal to Banbury and Stratford-upon-Avon.
Footpaths including the Thames Path at Abingdon are not for cyclists. Cycle route 5 and walkers’ national trail are separately marked from the wooden bridge near Abingdon Weir. You can get advice from the National Trails office but in general cyclists can use the footpath on stretches that are tarmac or asphalt providing they give way to pedestrians. Where the path is earth or grass this is for walking only.
Cycle route and footpath maps can be found online.
Abibike have put together a map of the bike racks available in Abingdon.
